What's a little boy like you doing with big boy smut like this?

Considering they were robbed 3 times in a month, you'd think you'd spend a little on SECURITY!

The best part about this was that it did not get the "hero" tag as usual. It was just a cool thing to do. Cool.

...and then he shot him.

2004-12-28 07:25:05 PM

Can a Bruthah get a stoopid tag 'round herr???

seriously, i would say a prayer for the person who lost it, but there is no way it's going back...

it's ok, i'm already forgiven

such a cheeky white girl!

I've been to York and Red Lion, PA, and there is nothing to do at night except hit the bars and drink. I would have taken the money and spent it on beer at the same tavern.

\York College chicks are sk@nks.

If I found a bag of cash, I'd like to think I'd return it to its rightful owner... but you and I both know I'd end up spending it on coke & hookers.
2004-12-28 08:25:04 PM  
Yeah, it's only a grand. If I had a good idea who the owner was, I wouldn't think twice about returning it. But something like 50K, I'd being paying off those college loans 'cause there ain't no way that kinda cash was accumulated through legitimate enterprise.

Beard had taken the money home for safekeeping, but somehow managed to lose it.

This, perhaps, is the best line in any story, ever.

Deserves a Wheaton tag

Beer and weed... oops!
2004-12-28 10:13:23 PM  
i never thought i would give money back either, but once when i found some in wal-mart my dad told me a story about

when he found $1000-$1500 in the floor at a restaraunt he worked at. he thought about keeping it and an old lady came

in, and said she had lost her husband's life savings that was to be used for his burial. after that i guess i had a guilt trip and

now if i found money i suppose i'd turn it in if it was that much.
2004-12-28 10:51:52 PM  
Damn return to sender would of been a better line or something anyhow considering the money was from a bar I bet the guy was drunk on the curb and forgot about it he didn't securing it my a$$
2004-12-28 10:53:36 PM  
argh my english is poor don't hate me because i am american
2004-12-29 12:57:55 AM  
You always think people are happier because they returned the money. But that's only because the news never runs stories about the people that KEEP the money. If they did, you'd find out that THOSE PEOPLE are alot happier.

I never understood why people would put 100's and 1000's of dollars in boxes/bags/collector's tins, and walk around town. Even if it is to the bank. Put them in your purse or pocket, and drive straight to the bank, whore house, whatever.

Bill: And this is where our employees gather to unwind after a hard day of servin' the public. [opens the door; behind it, three mail carriers sit at a table, searching letters for cash]
Mail Carrier #1: Bingo! Birthday card!
Mail Carrier #2: Graduation!
Mail Carrier #3: Ding-ding-ding! Wedding!

Deserves a Dumbass tag, like someone said above.

Knowing the Post Office, this guy probably got a letter of reprimand in his file for not following his schedule.
2004-12-29 12:02:42 PM  
Just goes to show what a bunch of theiving bastards their are at fark...keep the money indeed, Bah!
2004-12-29 01:34:18 PM  
You silly twit. The rule is fiders keepers, loosers weepers.

My Dad found a paper bag on the sidewalk in front of the neighbors house. In it was nearly $6000 and a few personal papers beolnging to the neighbor lady. She lived alone, and was convinced someone was trying to steal it, so I guess she thought she'd hide it on the front sidewalk?? Anyway, she lived alone and was pretty much completely out of it, so he called the cops and social services or someone notified the relatives, and I guess they put her away. Probably took the money for themselves, since they let her live all alone like that and never visited.
