After reading the article, I thought the same as subby: note was a cover for having taken the $40.

It would have been funny if the wallet belonged to the Pennsylvania kid who stabbed a bunch of people. Well, maybe not "ha ha" funny, but more like "that sure is odd" funny.

a highschooler with $60? I'm 39 and only have about $18 on my to last until Tuesday.

Find a wallet with 60$, return a wallet with 20$.
Profit, all day long.
JK. I had someone find and mail me my lost empty ass wallet in highschool, saved me a lot of grief ID and MAC card wise back in the day.

"Returned missing $40 bucks..." ofcourse that would be our first thought.   What pieces of shiat we have become.
 
2014-04-10 02:23:10 AM
Oh for FFS.  At least link to an article that has a readable picture of the note being written about.

Mom, can I borrow $60?

$60?  What do you need with $40?

Honey, give the boy $20!!!

With the Florida tag on this one, I was thinking the note would be either a death threat or someone writing them a note to say 'Hey, sorry I took the money, but you know how meth addiction is'.

I don't really believe in Karma, but I definitely try to do the right thing because it seems to eventually come back around.  I've had random people (some from the internet) help me find my stolen car, several stolen computers from work, etc.  My neighbor even saw my phone had fallen on the floor of our building and held onto it to make sure I got it back.

I've also helped return an iPhone, a $300 winning video lotto ticket, $150 in cash, and a laptop.

Maybe it's where I am, maybe it's who I spend time around, but some of them have been random.  (I found the iPhone in a Car2Go, got it back to the owner an hour later since he lived 1/3 mile or something from me.  The laptop was my ex-girlfriend's neighbor's laptop left on the same bus I was on, etc.)

So, probably not karma or anything.  It's probably just luck.  Still, I'd rather someone gets their stuff back than keep it myself.

God, I've been lucky. Lost my iPhone twice, my camera and my purse once. Got them all back. I'd like to think it's because I've gone out of my way so many times to return things I've found. Including 4 dogs on the lam (at different times) and a diamond necklace.

I was thinking the same thing.  On a totally related note, I can remember a time when I was in college and I couldn't get any cash out of the ATM because the minimum withdrawal amount was $20.  Actually, I can remember a  lot of times like that.  It seemed so unfair that I had $12 but I couldn't get at it on a Sunday afternoon.

I lost my wallet once at a gas station in Wyoming. Set it on the spare tire mounted at the back, and merrily drove off. Someone found it and mailed it to the Salt Lake City PD.

There's always a place in town that will sell you a 16 oz can of Old English for $1.09 and give you cash back.

Could have stolen all of it. I'll be honest: I lose my wallet and someone returns it sans cash? I'm grateful. The money is easily replaced; everything else in my wallet, maybe not so much.

My ex had a similar story... She'd gotten her tax return recently, and had almost the whole amount, in cash, in her wallet... She headed out to do something, buckled the youngest in his car seat, but had placed her wallet on top of the car while taking care of junior... Then drove off with the wallet on top... Yup, it soon fell off, and into the middle of the road, with about $1200 in it...

Fortunately the guy who found it had a sense of morals and returned all of it... I'm not sure, but I think my ex at least paid for his dinner that night, at the local steak place...

I lost $360 that was 80% of my damage deposit for a new place... It was just straight cash that fell out of my husband's pocket. We walked back and forth for a day or two, looking all over, but I decided to put up posters in my neighborhood and amazingly enough not only did I get it back but I had one or two other people contact me to offer me a replacement. It was pretty damn awesome, and gave me back faith in my community, if not humanity as a whole.

The person that did this has an obvious mental problem,  he/she needs to be found immediately and submitted to electro-shock therapy until they are as cynical and dead inside as the average farker.

I have the equivalent of a $160 on me, apparently. I always end up with big bills because I hate buying cheap stuff with 'em (gum etc.).
And the bills are from my account, whereas all groceries are purchased from the joint account...
Whenever I buy something of value, it's usually on the inter-tubes and therefore bought with a visa... how to spend these big bills...

We need a new expression for 1st world problems.

From the comments of TFA:

5 yrs ago I went fishing by myself at a man made lake and there were a lot of sailboats out,well I was getting ready to leave and found a wallet by the boat launch.I looked inside and there was 160.00,credit cards and the gentlemens Id,I was totally broke I was thinking of keeping it but my conscious got the better of me I went home and contacted the gentlemen and come to find out he was leaving on flight in the morning and of course he needed his Id .I felt so good when I gave him his wallet with everything in it.I felt so good it was totally unbelievable,and in return I was treated to dinner at olive garden.

Why would you do that to someone who helped you out?

Having more than $18 on you isn't "rich". Honestly, might be time to reevaluate your finances.

Oh good lord, people. You may be so fortunate to have never had to live paycheck to paycheck for various reasons at some point in your life, and that's not a bad thing. But have some tact... and perhaps reevaluate the possibility of an underlying need to feel superior. It would gain you benefits money cannot buy.

Come now, this is fark, where everyone has a great job that they love going to that pays them more than they need to get by, while still allowing them time to stay in shape, raise a family, and engage in a number of stimulating and fulfilling hobbies and why the fark aren't you, cuz if you aren't there's obviously something wrong with you. Oh yeah, and that extra income from that wonderjob allows them the flexibility to deposit $10,000/mo in their well-planned investment portfolio so they can retire at age 36, and if you aren't doing the same you've obviously made some pretty poor choices in life. I mean come on, we ALL have the same opportunities and inherent intelligence, so it's clearly a personal problem.

maybe one day in the far off future we'll have some sort of personal communicator that would allow us to post on places like this "on the go", just like on star trek.

In college I apparently dropped my wallet in the parking lot of a store. Someone turned it into the store, who turned it in to the police, who brought it to campus security, who called me.

Nothing was missing from it. I was pretty darned happy!
