Default I found some money today...

Today while searching for free parking on the street near a festival, when driving up to a spot I spotted a small roll of money in the street , 3 whole dollars wahooo! The most money I ever found was 10 dollars in a textbook back in the 7th grade. What'* the most you guys have found?

100 dollars canadian on the floor of a store. I turned it in and a few days later, no one claimed it so they gave it to me.

I was little so I blew it all on Hot Wheels.

How about other family members? My grandma bought a book at a thrift shop, it was a OLD book, she was flipping through it and found 6 $100s in it. There was a note too that said something like "Mad money in case Henry loses his job!" I remember it just because it was so cool.

I found a $100 chip on the floor of a casino by a blackjack table. My guess was that somebody kept coloring up to not spend it and thought he put it in his pocket....

I found $4000 in a customers pocket when I worked at a dry cleaner. I returned it and got $20.

I found $402 in a different customers pocket, they never came and picked up their clothes so after 90 days we got rid of the clothes and i got the moneys.

I found a single fold zip up wallet with about $2500 in it once in a mall parking lot. I was like, W. T. F. So I looked for an ID and then noticed it was the same woman who had just walked past me a minute earlier. Looked around and found the woman who was now just getting into her SUV like 1/4 mile across the complex, I yelled and she slammed her door at the same moment, appeared to be in quite a rush. So being the honest person I am, ran back to my car, and hustled after her, well, couldn't get her attention, so followed her on the freeway 25 miles ALL the way back to her house. She was insanely scared when I pulled up behind her and then proceeded to get out of her car, apparently she had already called the police and was telling me to get the F away, she called the police and all, and so I just calmly walk up to her closed window, and hold up her wallet. She looks at me like oh, my lord. So she looks down at her purse apparently and then looks back and then jumps out of the car and hugs me, thanking me profusely, and HERRRRE come the cops So she was so sorry that she called the cops and was so happy that I had made the effort to follow her ALL the way home. So she GAVE me $200! Yay for being a good Samaritan. I tried giving it back and telling her it was ok and she just wouldn't hear it. It really must be a rare thing nowadays to be that honest. Especially going that far out of my way. I actually had an appointment to meet someone as well. But hey, it all worked out well. I just remembered that, forgot about that. heh.
