A good deed, or a done breed?

An hour or two later, the person that actually lost the money came looking for it, and he got his money back.
On hindsight, I should have written an e-mail to everyone and if they came to me with the correct amount that was missing, I'd give it to them. Oh well, I'm a dumbass.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.
Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

Hindsight is 20/20. Yeah, the email thing would have been better, but you still made an excellent decision by having another employee bear witness to you giving the money to another person claiming to be the owner of it. Yeah, the witness could have lied through his teeth for a cut of the money, but he didn't. In the end, the original owner got the money back. I know far too many who would have pocketed the money and pretended they never saw it. You're not perfect, but you made a good decision that resulted in a good deed being done. There's not much more a person could ask for.
All you can do is try to do right thing, you can't read minds so if the wrong person claims it, there isn't much you can do about it. The email thing sounds nice in theory but not everyone keeps track of much money they have on them. If I had lost that money and came to claim, I couldn't have told you how I lost because I just don't consider how much I have on me, I mean even if you're talking estimates and rounded numbers I probably wouldn't know. However I suppose it would work fine in this case because there are only four bills there, I reckon a person could easily remember if it was only four bills.

most of the guys I know would keep the money; good job

contact the sheriff's department
leave the bag where i found it
give the bag to airport security
Of the three I chose to give the bag to airport security along with one of my business cards.
I never did hear back from the owner of that bag, so don't know to this day whether the airport security guard kept it, turned it over to someone else or if the guy ever came back to claim his possessions.

airport security = can't get hired at the mall
and if you have ever flown in the last 10 years, you can see the reliance on machines versus intelligent people and how its shifted to basically a monkey with scanning equiptment
anymore if someone were to having a bomb, the amount of people in the lines waiting to get through security checkpoints
is probably getting more than even on a plane, eventually we will have checkpoint terrorism lol
