I found $100 as a kid. I was 11 years old, and it was in a mall parking lot. My mom made me take it to security. They said nobody mentioned losing it and it was mine. I bought a Nintendo with it.
From Scripps Ranch (Military)
Well, I found $20,000 in Iraqi dollars. But that only amounts to about $4 U.S. I found it in one of the bunkers when I was over there. That isn’t even considered a lot of money over there.
From New Jersey (Car Insurance)
I’ve never found any money. I’m from New Jersey. There’s never any money on the ground back there. I don’t know if it’s because the people are too greedy. I bet the one person there that’s found a large sum of money ended up next to Jimmy Hoffa.
From Southeast San Diego (Editor)
I found $100 in Vegas outside of Olympic Gardens strip club. It was right near the door last year. I was being all stealth and ghetto about it, as I picked up the money. I then bought two lap dances from these guys. I was handing out all kinds of money and I had a great night.
From San Diego (Bartender)
I found $200, but it was in a wallet. That was in downtown Sacramento when I worked in a club. I found the wallet in a place that turned into a bar. I didn’t leave my name, but the people there knew me. I figured they wouldn’t jack me or anything. But at the club I would find money on the floor all the time. The most was probably $20, and my logic was that if it was on the floor, it’s fair game.
From Downtown (Dog Trainer)
It wasn’t much. I was at the library in P.B., on Thomas. I was in the grass area with my dogs, and I found $20. It was early in the morning and nobody else was around, so it wasn’t like I could ask anyone standing nearby if it was theirs. I probably just went and bought a couple cans of Guinness.
