    Today I dropped my wallet with about 600.00 dollars in while picking up some food for my sons birthday. When I got home I got a call we have your wallet, it was dropped in the parking lot.

    All money and my debit card intact.

    It’s not all bad.

    Good thing that you didn't try and get this on the news somewhere.

    Good things don't happen in America if you listen to them!

    Thanks for posting how life really is!

    Wife left her purse on the roof of the car. Got a call that it was at the C-store down the road.

    Well the business restaurant called and was turned in. The waitress remembered me because of the 50.00 tip I left her.

    Germ she is not into you, she gets paid to pretend to be interested in you.

    I was just picking up my food at a family place we have been going to since I was 5, and she’s like 70.

    Just stand in the place for a bit and watch people pay with their cards and not leave these ladies anything.

    Nice of you to give her cash so she does not have to declare that and pay taxes on that income.

    She probably joins the majority of cash tipped employees. Not saying it's right, just saying what is reality.

    Either way, it's still comforting to know there are still good, honest people out there. I haven't lost my confidence!

    Sorry not sorry, I do not qualify for a stimulus check and for that I am fortunate, I do however pay taxes on every single penny I make. We are all in this together pay your share based on what you make. When I worked fire I qualified for unemployment. I chose to work instead. I had friends that took the unemployment and worked "cash" jobs in the winter, none of them were high character people, and they still suckle at the public tit.

    I once lost a wallet, and I thought that someone stole it from me. I went to the police, but all I had to do was to check my Facebook. The guy who found it contacted me. When I told the cops that it was returned they almost didn't believe me...
