    Without getting audited from the IRS, have you ever found cash and how much?

    The last time I found cash was 10 years ago and it was $102 rolled up on the ground in Balboa Park..

    Though last year I walked up to a B of A ATM that someone had walked away from that was still logged in.

    I clicked on the balance and thought it would ask me for the PIN again like they do as a security measure but nope took me right into that dudes account..
    I looked at the balance then ejected the card and threw it in the trash knowing that my picture would be all over banks security tapes had I pulled money out

    I found a $5 bill once near a McDonald's drive thru

    A few years ago, near one of those vacuum machines at the gas station, found some weed wrapped in cellophane from cigarette wrapper

    The most I've found in cash is a $20 bill. I found a purse at a grocery but turned that into lost and found. Don't know if it had cash in it. Always wondered if those guys took whatever was in it.

    Long time ago when I was a kid, I found an AmEx outside a theater. It had the woman's name on it and I actually found her in the phone book (it was the late 90's when people still had landlines). I called her up, asked if she was missing an AmEx with the last four digits of XXXX or whatever, and she freaked out and hung up on me.

    I cut the card up with scissors.

    And then there was a time when a guy left the ATM in front of me, card still in where I could pull cash out if I wanted (before they upped some security measures on those things), so I pulled the card and jogged to the guy and said, "you forgot your card." He was on a cell and took the card from me.

    Got zero thanks.

    On one hand it made me a bit pissy and I thought, "I shoulda fucking emptied his account or something" but then the paranoid side said, "yeah, and you'd be in jail right now if you had."

    As I think of it now, I wish I'd simply pulled the card, ended his transaction without committing a crime, and simply cut the card up to cause him the inconvenience of having to get a new one. But that's only with the hindsight of him being unappreciative of my honesty/paranoia.

    The strangest thing I've found is an el cheapo pistol in a park. It was some kind of .25 cal piece of shit that the "youths" in my area enjoy using to rob people. I was walking my dog at the time and found it under some bleachers, just lying there. It was filed. I didn't check to see whether it was loaded or anything. I picked it up with one of my dog's shit-bags and went home and called the police.

    I found $1100 in $100 dollar bills in a trash can that was hanging on the front of a bar. The trash can was for the waitresses at their station. The guy had opened his wallet to pay his bill and he must have pulled the $100 Bills out when he pulled cash out to pay his lunch bill..He called to ask if we found it , so i looked on the floor where he was standing earlier. I just got lucky and looked in the trash.
    He came in to get his cash and gave me a whole $5 dollar tip/reward !!

    I was @17 or 18 at the time , so i guess he thought that was enough for me ! Maybe i should have told him that "YES, I did find your $1000 and got my own tip !! I woulda given him a 100 for finding my 1000 !!

    $102 in Balboa Park, the guy that lost it probably had to swallow a load or two for that. I found a $100 bill on the street in front of El Pescador in La Jolla a couple of years ago.

    Let's hear it for security cameras, then. I think I understand your worldview better now. I found $20, bought drinks for the co-workers who were standing there when I saw it on the ground.
