    What would you do if you found $18,000??

    This 16-year old Twin Cities kid gave it to people he thought needed it, including secretly stashing a bunch in his bus driver's bag because "she has kids, and needed it".

    Stupid integrity would make me turn it in to police.

    Yeah, probably.

    But "finders keepers, losers weepers" is tempting.

    Good for that kid. Maybe not the "right" thing to do, but heart seems in the right place.

    I'd keep it for a week and sleep with it in my bed and then probably turn it in out of guilt. I might keep a bit as a finder's fee.

    First I'd create a post on CF to get everyone's input on what I should do with it.

    Re: What would you do if you found $18,000??

    I'd probably keep 3000 and give 15000 or something. It's hard to say I wouldn't take some of it for me.

    Re: What would you do if you found $18,000??

    I would go to the casino and put $18,000 down on a game of roulette. If I won I would keep the winnings and give the $18,000 back or to charity. If I lost, oh well.

    I would calmly drive to the police station, talk with an officer and tell him "I've found $10,000 that isn't mine."

    Depending on where I found it, how it was wrapped, and whether or not anyone was near. But I can say that if I was alone, they weren't wrapped, and no one saw me get it; I would definitely keep it, but only use small portions at a time.

    Very good idea.
