Just yesterday I was having lunch with a friend of mine in a diner on Long Island. After we sat down, the owner came over and asked...did either of you drop $300 dollars?  Money

 

I didn't but my friend checked his pockets and he was missing that exact amount of money. We were both blown away that this guy found it and brought it over.

 

Would you have done what that owner did? Be honest...

    No question. How did he lose it?

    Yes, I would. Did the owner see it dropped, or did someone else find it and give it to the owner? That would be even better.

    That is a very honest person--impressive. If I was fairly certain that the money belonged to someone at your table, I definitely would have brought it over. BUT--If I hadn't a clue to whom it belonged, I'd have kept it in safe keeping and waited for the person to phone or come back inquiring. It would require honesty from both sides. If he had asked the wrong person, that $300 would be in some other person's dishonest pockets.

    I'm with Carly on this one. If I was relatively sure who the money belonged to, I'd ask. Otherwise I'd wait until someone claimed it. When I was dancing, people would lose wallets, money, phones, jewelry, etc. Most people who found items would ask the DJ to make a non-descriptive announcement giving anyone who claimed the item a chance to describe it.

    Sure, in fact I have found a wallet a few times (with money in it) and checked for ID and then contacted the owners. A few months ago, I found a cell phone, which luckily wasn't password protected, and called the most recent caller who turned out to be the sister of the owner. I am hopeful 99% of us would do the same thing.

    I had a similar issue yesterday at a cash register. The item cost $154.05 (of course it was boots). I handed the cashier $204.05, but she rang it in as $254.05 and proceeded to hand me back $100.00 instead of $50.00. I do admit I pondered for a split second but then quickly told her of her mistake.

    I too would cautiously give it back assuring the recipient was indeed the person who lost it.
    Being from a retail background, I can agree with Rona. Those cashiers can lose a job if the register is short on their shift. Honesty always wins as does good Karma.

    Mitch this is a very interesting question. My immediate thought is, "Yes, of course, I'd give it back..." but sometimes I do or don't do things based on my "feeling" at that moment. Some days, I give a $20 bill to someone asking for money and other times I find it an annoyance and have no intention of giving that person money. So, being honest, I think Id' give it back, but I'm not sure I could guarantee I'd do that every time...
