The guy owns a detail shop...he might very well make a lot more more than said douche, anyway.

Where the hell did you get the part about him cleaning the asshole's car,  Subby??

Unless the guy happens to drive the sidewalk in front of a hardware store..

As always in these things, we only have one side's story, which we usually accept at face value as absolute, complete truth.

About a year ago, my wallet fell out of my pocket as I got out of my car. About an hour later a little old lady from an apartment downstairs knocked on my door and gave me the wallet.

I looked through it and saw that the little bit of money, but more importantly my driver's license, credit cards, etc. were still there. I thanked her and commented that I was happy nothing was taken, and then had to reassure the little old lady that I wasn't accusing her of anything. My thought was that someone else could have seen it first, emptied it, and then tossed it back down for her to find.

Well, in the douchebag's defense, he DID have to get to the gym in 26 minutes...

The leather wallet I use to this day I found on the ground in a parking lot about 7 years ago totally empty. I hope whoever lost it/got robbed didn't lose too much. It's a pretty nice wallet.

Soo... you kind of come across as a bit of a douche, don't cha?

The point being, the first thing you say is "Thank you so much!" before you start checking for your goodies.

/I'm assuming you didn't say "thank you" right away because that's the way you told your CSB.

This one doesn't sound so bad... depending on how the guy said it you know.  Did he say it in some overly accusatory manner, or in more a of "wow I hope my money is all there!" kind of way.

Could go either way...
 
2013-02-14 04:08:25 PM
1) Why was the guy carrying around an envelope with $1200 in it?
2) Why did he not constantly keep aware of it?

I am capable of saying thank you and looking through a wallet at the same time.  I didn't even know I had dropped my wallet, so I had to look through it to see if it was in fact mine.
 
2013-02-14 04:10:11 PM
So, did we ever get an answer on whether it was all there?
 
2013-02-14 04:10:32 PM
But what happened to the $1600 before the douchebag lost sight of it? Was the $2300 well hidden or was the $2500 in plain sight?

I just got a customer ticket for a technical issue.  I swear her description was barely above utter gibberish - random mistyped characters, bizarre punctuation, issue completely unclear.  Instead of communicating through text I called her to offer an online web conference.

"Hi, my name is Diogenes and I'm from X Company Support.  I'm calling to assist with your technical issue."

"Well this better be good.  Because I'm leaving at 4."
 
2013-02-14 04:11:35 PM
What he doesn't mention is that the envelope originally had $2000.

"I am going to get raped by my dealer if it isn't all there" seems more likely, yeah

He should get a job with the TSA. They seem to have problem with their employees not taking the money
 
2013-02-14 04:12:39 PM
$1200 in an envelope.  Sounds like he owed someone money.  That may be why he reacted like he did.  He was hoping he was going to be able to pay off a debt that he otherwise could not.

More likely, he's just a douche.  But, I like to give the benefit of the doubt when I can.

Driving through my condo group one day I saw a wallet dead center in the road.  I parked my car and walked over to retrieve the wallet.  Inside was a drivers license with and an address in the group, someone must of put it on top of their car and drove off.  I drove over to the unit and knocked on the door, a woman answered and I handed her the wallet and told her where I found it. She took the wallet, turned and shut the door not a word to me.

When I was changing tires in college a customer accused me of stealing a bag of weed from his glove box.

My manager offered to call the police for him so he could report the theft.
 
2013-02-14 04:15:13 PM
If he doesn't have proof its his, dude could've just pulled it back and said "on second thought, I had this in my other pants right before I did the laundry." Not that I would, but that asshole might think differently next time someone tries to return shiat he can't keep track of. Probably at least 40% of people wouldn't have bothered to track the person down.

Of course, whether or not you feel you need that $1200 makes a big difference. I would try to return the money but only because 1200 doesn't seem like a ton of money to me when it might be to someone else (especially the type of person who carries it around in an envelope) whereas if I was $800 away from an eviction I might just thank lady fortune and apologize to the never-to-be-met stranger.

Osborn hopes that people will learn from his experience, and he says, "Just because [somebody's got] a beard and tattoos and [they're] dirty doesn't mean they're bad people."

eh... For the most part, around here everyone has tattoos, beards and looks dirty.

It's the bastards wearing expensive suits and smelling like a Macy's counter display you need to watch out for. Those assholes'll rob you blind. : )

I was expecting some over-the-top reaction like a surprise punch to the gut or the guy freaking out and waving a hatchet around. "I hope it's all there" is apparently a reaction so shocking and horrible that it merits a news story. Assuming of course that the facebook posting this article is based on is accurate.

Yeah, sounds like the guy got his panties all bunched up and his feelings hurt.  Or he was looking for a reward, and didn't receive one so he posted a whine online, pointing out how darn NICE he was.  Sometimes when you're a "nice person", to even insinuate something other than you being wonderfully nice is a huge insult.  If the guy had said something like "did you take any" or "how did you get that", then it would be offensive, even though they're valid questions.

Here is my wallet CSB.

Stopped at a Subway during a long car trip.  Went to use the bathroom and do my business.  There was a fat wallet sitting on top of the toilet paper dispenser.  I ask you Fark community, how many of you take out your wallet to take a dump?

I lost a wallet while I was waiting for my ride home from work once. It had about $40 in cash, along with all the rest of the detritus. I'm pretty sure it just fell out of my pocket. I know who took it, since I had the wallet when I walked out of the mall, and didn't have it after getting home. The only possible person could have been the teenage girl who was on the bench next to me.

I only bring it up here because about 6 weeks later, I got the wallet and cards back in the mail, sans cash. It was addressed in feminine handwriting. I always imagine her mom catching her with a stranger's wallet and forcing her to mail it back.

I walked in the grocery store the other day and their was a shopping cart with a purse sitting in the basket. I felt like I was on some kind of undercover "what would you do?" type show. I wheeled the whole cart over to the nearest cashier and let her deal with it.  No way I was touching that purse.
