You see $100 on the ground. Do you pocket it or turn it in.

I pocket it. Unless it's in a wallet, then that would be stealing.

I would probably keep it unless i saw the person drop it. If i took it to the police or something all they would do is spend it. I would put it toward charity though because i wouldn't be able to spend money somebody lost and is looking for on myself. That might sound dumb but it is just the way i do things.

Interesting way of looking at it. But, for whatever reason, you actually need the money for a necessity, such as food or a bill. Would you use it then?

If my family needed it yes i would because my family comes before what i think. If it was just me then i might if i was starving and had nothing. Other then that i would just give it to a charity and put it to good use if i didn't desperately need it or if my family didn't need it. If it was my family then i would look at it as a blessing from god to help us. The funny thing though i told one my friends something like this one time and he said it made me sound like i was 50 when i'm only 19.

I will try to track down of the owner and return it to him/her. I bet he/she needs it very important and its a pity if he/she wont find the money.

I pocket it now. Last time I turned it into the store were I found it the person who had lost the money never came to claim it and the store owner kept it for himself I later found out. I would have thought he would give it to the person who found it. It would be the only honest thing to do.
