(New York Daily News)   You find a wallet outside a Kohl's. Do you: a) turn it in at customer service, b) take it home with you and try to find contact information for the owner, or c) stand there in front of the surveillance cameras distributing the money to your kids?   (nydailynews.com) divider line 102

Once again this is not unusual in any way.  Except maybe that she handed it out to the kids instead of keeping it for her iTunes habit.

Update from Atlanta's CBS station says the wallet, with all of its contents, was turned in to the Sheriff's office.

I guess the lady put the stuff back in the wallet and turned it in.  She may have seen this on the news.

One does not hand out the contents of a wallet if one is checking it for I.D. Nah, she got cold feet when she realized she was caught on camera, and decided to round up the cash & turn it in, hoping her incipient theft charges would just blow over.

This right here.  She's not sorry she stole the cash and gift cards; she's sorry she got caught.

Traditionally, her next step will be to blame the store for anything negative at all that happens to her as a result of her own damn actions.

FTFA : The next day, Smith went back to the store and employees allowed him to watch the surveillance video, where he witnessed the woman using his lost wallet like an ATM.

Stores are allowed to do this? When I worked retail our LP director wouldn't budge unless the cops showed with a warrant, and even then sometimes the footage was "lost".

Was that when your LP people caught somebody stealing and confronted them? And the "lost" footage was probably "lost" because your LP people did something that they weren't supposed to do when they confronted the person.

This case would be different since the store employees didn't confront the lady at all. Just caught her on tape emptying a wallet.

It would take rather more than $743 for me to override my conscience.

That said, I once got a call from my broker asking me why I hadn't called them to acknowledge the $93,000 I wired to my account, and without questioning myself said "oh, yeah, of course, I guess I forgot about that". It took me about eighteen seconds to realize that it wasn't enough to live like a God in a country that doesn't extradite forever, and go ahead and tell them it must have been a mistake and someone needs their money back.

I needed a new pair of shoes so I went down to Nordstrom Rack to see if they had anything decent in there.  I was surprised, the place looked somewhat shabby but the shoes were decent.  Anyway I'm trying them on and suddenly a mid twenties girl stands over my shoulder.  I'm like WTF?  Then she starts speaking into her earpiece.  Cool, I'm witnessing a shoplifter takedown.

Anyway I go back to a different one to return an item and then go look at some jeans.  There's a guy about the same age giving me the stink eye for the entire 15 minutes.  I was going to congratulate him on his fine sleuthy detective skills.

My LP was a lesbian with a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Had thighs powerful enough to crush a Buick. Employee theft was more common than customer theft. That being said, there's no way she would've let a customer see any kind of surveillance tape. Then again I don't remember anything like this happening at my store.

Of course not. If the woman was black, this thread would be 600 comments long because a parade of angry-at-the-world asshats would have come a-runnin' to spew their bile. You know who I'm talking about. You probably have them farkied in red too.

He can't. He's not Scandinavian. At least not according to my Teatard neighbor about five houses up from mine, who swears Obama's a Nazi Commie Kenyan Sekrit Muslin Illuminati AntiChrist. Also a bunch of other stuff I don't remember, because I zoned out during his tirade at the Fourth of July block party last summer.

Finding a wallet and returning it to it's owner is why I have such high faith in the Rule of Acquisition 285: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

In high school I found a wallet on the floor in the stairwell.  I opened it up and found a bunch of notes as well as a drivers license.  By luck the license was that of a girl who was in the class I was walking to.  My friend told me that she was a massive biatch and that I might be better off reading all the notes and tossing the wallet into the trash can.  I told him no, that I was going to do the right thing and give it to her.

So, there I was in class.  She came rushing in, panicking about her wallet being lost, talking to the teacher about being allowed to look for it.  I stood up, pulled her wallet from my coat pocket and told her that I found it.  She took it and walked to her seat.  The teacher had to remind her to tell me thank you.  Already I was starting to question if I did the right thing or not. Yes, giving back the wallet was the right thing.  Giving it to a person who doesn't even think to say "thank you", that's a warning sign.  A week later I'm summoned to the principal's office.  She's accused me of having stolen her wallet in the first place and stealing over $100 from it.  Having my friend with me when the wallet was found was nice, since I was able to get him to testify to me finding the wallet and giving it to her.  Also me asking the principal "Why would I steal a wallet, take the money, and then give it back to her?" helped explain to the principal that I hadn't taken the money, just a good Samaritan who helped out an ungrateful biatch who accused the person who found her wallet of stealing her money.

i have often wondered exactly what percentage are lost wallets are turned in?

Lost mine once , was turned in by some kids or so i was told when I went to claim it, i was impressed that they had not taken the cash inside it, if i could have identified who they were i would have rewarded them for their honesty.

I'll admit i would have been tempted by the content of that wallet most people would feel a at least a slight bit of temptation even if they never acted upon it.

Something similar happened to an old roomie of mine, except he was in his 30's, the lady who owned the wallet was in her 50's, he found it in the street in front of the local mini mart and drove the three blocks to her home to return it.

Oh, and the biatch called the cops on him, who he patiently waited for as she repeatedly threatened him with bodily harm and screamed obscenities at him out on her front lawn, demanding her money and credit cards back. I bet she was real popular with the neighbors.

/I totally TP'd her house and used our water key to turn her sprinklers on a few weeks later in fit of drunken disdain for ungrateful biatches everywhere

2013-02-04 03:20:21 AM  
Short, fat, white, southern fried biatch one of the 47% and probably a klukker. I'm guessing she knew one of her close friends was waiting for a $10 reward to turn her in and she probably had enough priors to land her in jail and spend the next 6 months getting double fisted by another lady who looks like Ving Rhames in cornrows and a mumu.

She's a stay-at-home mom. He is a seminary school student, as he and the news channel pointed out every five seconds. They have a baby. They seem to have a nice house.

Where does any of their money come from?

He said you can imagine money is a little tight her as stay-at-mom and me as a student. Yes, I could imagine there is no money. I could imagine debt.

I've returned all three wallets that I've found in my life, complete with all their contents as I found them.  Likewise, I've lost my wallet twice, and both times they were returned to me with everything still in them.

So, perhaps it's a pretty high percentage?
