I got up from my cube Tuesday to go to the lab when something near the trashcan in the hallway caught my eye; a neatly folded $5 bill. I looked around to see if anyone had recently dropped it but didn't spot anyone. So I reached down to pick it up when a Project Manager I know says "Score! That's much better than the quarters I usually find." I chuckled and shoved the money into my pocket as I continued on my way. My mind raced with what I could do with the money....donate it to a charity, pay for a random person's lunch, put it in my retirement account.
But I just bought a Schlitz instead.
Now, that $5 obviously was lost by someone but would they expect the finder to turn it in to the front desk? And if I didn't grab it someone else would have and probably bought crack with it, right?
