I was at Six Flags Great America once (a theme park if you don't know what that is) and I found $60 blowing across the sidewalk, so I picked it up, returned it to the small information desk near where I found it, and they told me to keep it. I felt bad for whoever lost it, but if you think about it, there were thousands of people there. The owners probably wouldn't have remembered where they lost it. I've found money at school too, but I always give it back.

I've often found money on the floor in school, but never in the street. :)

:p

Come to think of it, I did find someone's wallet once. No money in it - just a rather ominous police letter...

Once I lost some money, not too much, and the next day I found the exact same amount on the street (really lucky :D ).

Found a 20 pound note in a puddle once, couple of years ago. Found a five pound note in the park on my way home just after Christmas. Have found loads of two pounds, pounds (won't tell you where I found the last two I picked up) and fifty pences.

(On my stepdads 50th birthday, he found a £50 note!!! No joke!)

See a penny, pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck. I find pennies quite regularly down the back of sofas, but 40 euros??!! :eek: Buy a lottery ticket quick, your day's lucky! :P

I found money on the ground a few times, but it was always small amounts. Once I found a wallet with around 50 euros, but it also contained the person's documents so I mailed it back to him, money and all. Yeah, I'm so pointlessly kind, I know :p

Don't have time to watch what's lying on the floor.

Don't have time to watch what's lying on the floor.

That's why people end up tripping over low kerbs and standing in dog muck. Finding cash down there is the bonus of watching where you walk. ;)


I occasionally get dreams where there's loads of small change scattered about the ground, and I always go to pick it up intending to buy something to eat with it. :p

If I found a wallet I would hand it in to the police station. If I found money I would just keep it. I'm not exactly going to start putting posters up on lamposts saying "Found 1000 in a paper bag today. If it's yours, call the number on the bottom of this leaflet and I'll give it back to you".:)

The most I've ever found is 1. Leeds, disappointingly, is nothing like the Parisian Ghetto.

lol scotlee!
i found a fiver on the floor once. it was just after my birthday, when i had recieved quite a bit of money for that anyway...
if i found a wallet/purse i would hand it in at the police station. if i found money i would keep it, after checking nobody was looking around on the floor frantically.

One time i found a pound coin on the floor, but when i tried to pick it up, i discovered it had been superglued to the floor! i hope nobody saw me...

I like that.:cool:

When I was little, I found a bank note blowing in the street and handed it in to the police station. I went back a month later and the policeman gave me the note and told me never to forget I had been good.:cool:

So I find "pengar" (pennies) on the street most weeks and I always pick them up. :cool:
