    So you are at the barber/salon for a service. You frequent the establishment every 4-6 weeks. Before your appointment you use the restroom. As you enter you don't notice anything in particular, but as you are washing your hands you notice cash on the floor. It's folded neatly. it's 5-7 twenties, a couple of tens fives and a few ones. You think it must have fallen out of your pockets/bag. You had recently gone to dinner with friends and used your CC, and they gave you cash that you still had. You put it in your wallet, and go sit for your appointment.

    About 20/30 minutes later you notice an employee walking around the shop looking for something, they are checking their pockets and clearly looking for something they had lost.

    What do you do?

    Return it, obviously. One time I was at the back of a "pub" in London and some guy (bloke? chap?) dropped a wad of bills. So I walked to where he was in the other room and told him he'd dropped some money and he followed me back and picked it up.

    You really thought it could have been yours. It wasn't on the floor where you found it when you walked in the restroom, you saw it after you did your business and assumed you dropped it

    about $120

    I was in Times Square one night and a guy that was giving us a ride had dropped his wallet that had about 3k in it.We rode around again and someone flagged him down and handed his wallet back without a bill missing.

    I dropped my wallet in a cab today. The driver checked the backseat as I was walking away and returned it to me. Thank god, holy shit. He was from Nigeria and talked about god the whole ride so apparently he walks the walk. Nigeria is only relevant cause I thought all they did for a living is scam people online.
