(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 19

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".

FormlessOne: 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.

fusillade762: CheddarPants: Update from Atlanta's CBS station says the wallet, with all of its contents, was turned in to the Sheriff's office.

So it was somebody else's wallet that lady found?


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

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.

stonicus: kokomo61: 2) In Paris, I noticed a couple of kids who 'didn't belong' (e.g., not with adults or a group, and thought - "need to keep an eye out"). It wasn't 15 seconds before I felt a slight brush (it was VERY light) against my back pocket - I whipped around so quick, he didn't have time to blink. He pointed to the other kid, and evidently I was scary enough they both broke and ran.

What's the deal with keeping a wallet in your back pocket?  Never understood this...


Me neither... I've always kept mine in my right front pocket... Easier for me to access, harder for pick-pockets to access unnoticed, and I don't have a thick wallet digging into my ass uncomfortably every time I sit down! You back pocket wallet people are just weird...

Worked with a guy who, when at a self serve gas station paying for his fuel, set his wallet down on the counter beside him. He was engaged in a short conversation with the guy behind the counter and then turned and left. He made it to his car when he realized he had left the wallet on the counter. He returned within a minute to get it. Thinking maybe if fell off of the counter into the snacks or something he conducted a search with the counter guy for a while. Eventually, unable to find it, and very perturbed they rewound the surveillance tape and saw the woman behind him reach for the wallet the second his back was turned. She put it in her purse, calmly made her purchase (cigarettes) and then left the store. She was clearly visible but no one recognized or could identify her. She paid cash for her purchase therefore couldn't be traced that way. She actually passed my buddy in the doorway (he held the door open for her) as he went back to retrieve his wallet. Having parked off to the side (not buying gas she wasn't on those cameras) she drove off undetected. She couldn't have planned this.

On top of this he lost a few days pay after that as he was a truck driver and his company wouldn't let him drive without documents (license) until he replaced them.  Who has the blackness of heart to do this spontaneously within a second of the opportunity? Still bothers me...

lelio: 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.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Just redistributing the wealth, I'm surprised Hussein Obama hasn't given her a Nobel Prize yet.


I have found several wallets, all with cash, that I turned in. Twice in the last few months, actually. That said I've found cash before as well, and kept it. Unless I saw the person who dropped it, it's mine. Although once, when I was working, I saw a man drop something right outside our front door as he took his wallet out of his pocket to present ID. I informed him he had dropped something, both he and his girl ignore me. I repeated again that he dropped something, they both glare at me, and he replies "I don't give a fark" and the girl ask me "so what?"

Lovely. So fark it, I'll play your mommy, why not. Go to pick up the trash he dropped, see it's a folded $50. Score. Picked it up, pocket it, pretend to throw something in the trash, in case someone is watching, and go back behind the counter, where my fellow wage slave friend has been watching the scene unfold. Wave him into the break room, pull out the cash to inform him that lunch and a decent round of drinks has just been provided to us, and I'll be damned if it wasn't five 50's folded up.

/yes, we split it. No regrets, and I'd do it again.

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.

How do people like this get by?

Prayer?

Maybe this TV appearance lol.

Great Janitor: 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.

*snip*

just a good Samaritan who helped out an ungrateful biatch who accused the person who found her wallet of stealing her money.


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

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.

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.
