I found a wallet today.....part II....w/ poll

Over the weekend, while walking back to my car in the parking lot from the mall I found a beat up kid's wallet. I picked it up and drove off. While driving I opened up the wallet and there was $35 with no identification, except a game card for one of those arcades. I used the money to fill up my gas tank.

The $1,000,000 question is: What would you have done?

Does this topic really justify a 2nd thread AND poll??

What happened to, "keep the money AND wallet"?

Would it have been better if the money and wallet was kept but duly donated to charity?

I'd turn it into the lost and found because the one time I lost my wallet somebody did that for me.

would turn it in... but i highly doubt the kid would get it back anyways... keep the money and pay it forward in the future... go volunteer at a homeless shelter for a day or something... or buy a kid some ice cream.

you did nothing wrong. there was no ID how would they possibly find the kid and I doubt the kid would go to the lost and found counter.

Didn't you just find $35 dollars or something? So isn't it just a $35 dollar question?

I'd take that shit. Chances are, without ID, the lost and found people would have pocketed the $35 anyway.

Natureboy......
The poll is against you, so you need to put $100 ($65 is for interest for the kids college fund) back in the wallet and drop it back where you found it

Hmmmmm.....a kid with an arcade card, he's prbly around 8-10 yrs old
now $35 to an 8 yr old is consider Baller....thats like $3500 for us

Forget that. If the person was older, with like a drivers license, and credit cards, insurance info, etc... i would return the wallet. But the kid doesn't need $35 as much as your thirsty 330i does. Job well done

I would return the wallet because I lost my wallet at school two times and both times someone has returned it to the lost and found with all my money there. It's just good karma to do the same.
