“It’s not my money. I shouldn’t take it. I don’t care if you put another zero on there, I wasn’t raised to take money that isn’t mine,” said Adams, a 54-year-old single man who lives in Arlington Heights and credits his deceased parents for teaching him right from wrong. “If I saw you drop it, I’d say, `Excuse me, sir. I think you dropped something.’”
Is it me or is something wrong with people who do this? Why don’t these people think it’s a blessing that they found this money? A few weeks ago someone found money in an attic and turned it in to the police. If you ask me these are senseless acts of being a goody too shoes.. Obviously God and the Universe wanted you to have that money.. Why give it back?
I mean if I see someone drop something. Or I find a wallet or a purse I always contact the owner to give them their stuff back. But if I found money in a house that I own it’s mine. Adults grow up and forget the simple childhood rhyme.
