Yes, once I did find a wad of banknotes lying on the road. I picked it up, held it in my hand, never counted it and gave it to the first beggar, who looked emaciated and hungry. I saw her eyes sparkle with gratitude. I never kept it for myself because it wasn't my hard-earned money.

wow! That's so cool, and since it was found on your property, it goes without saying that it's your money. I wonder who dropped it there? My husband found $20 in a groccery store once, just lying on the floor, and he took it to customer service, since someone probably lost it. Since it was found in a public place, I think he did the right thing.

Hi, pop! Wow! That is a lot of money to be finding so luckily! I have never found that much of money before. Not unless it was my money that I lost. Especially, if I am looking for it anyway. I know that you are glad to find this much of money. Enjoy!

hey thats great! i love finding money on the ground. my last big find was probably $5 and a twoonie (a two dollar coin here in canada) but not at the same time. i generally find pennies, dimes, nickels, that sort of thing.

This happened to me several times already, too. I usually find one in public places like school grounds, marketplaces, and stores. I remember one twenty peso bill I found which gave me a whole day of trouble until I finally used it to pay my fare. It was really a funny series of unfortunate events for me that day.

There was once a time when I was a kid, I don't have much money so I kept begging my mom to give me some more but she refused since she didn't want us to be spoiled. One day, I found a 100 peso bill which is almost equivalent to $2. The funny thing is, there were a lot of people around so I was a bit shy to take that bill. I was with my friends. Know what I did? i stepped on the peso bill and stood there until my friends started getting busy. then I took the money. Everytime I remember that time, it really makes me feel so embarassed and at the same time feel funny towards myself.

I've found money in many places that I didn't expect it to be but never that much on the ground. I've found money in books, hidden in an old camera of mine and the most strange a ten dollar bill from 1977 (the year I graduated) from my parents when I graduated high school. I just found that last year when filing through papers of mine at my mother's home in IA. It was still with the graduation card!!!

I actually found twice. It was outside the office, to be exact it was placed near the trashcan it was 500 pesos, I got nervous and checked the place to make sure nobody was there and hurriedly picked that bill. Second time, it was in my boarding house, I was sweeping outside my room when I found another 500 at the stairs, a lot of boarders come and go in that area who I dont know where to return it. As usual, when I found that bill, my heart beats so fast, I got tense, look everywhere and was into doubt, what if somebody was just testing my honesty but I dont I just picked up the bill and waited if ever someone will ask me about it. But thanks heaven, nobody ask for it. LOL.
