Thrift Store Worker Returns 30K



Read the story, it's short and afterwards read my Howard Cosellian response. If you think it's cunty, fine, fine, fine.

Barbarita Nunez was sorting clothes on Tuesday at the Veterans Thrift Store when she found a small box. Inside was an envelope of cash. Nunez said at first she thought the money was fake. But just in case, she gave it to her supervisor.

The money turned out to belong to a woman who had recently died. It was returned to her family, who gave Nunez a cash reward.

Nunez said she will send some of the reward to Mexico so her mother can have an eye operation and will use the rest to buy a digital camera."

If I found 30K in that situation, I admit it, I'd keep it, I would. I really would. What cracks me up is the cliche ending of the yarn. I'm just sayin'.

So, the woman who found it didn't keep it, and the manager who got it from her didn't keep it, and when it went to the family (and it was a gift/inheritance to them), they gave some of the money back. Everyone is so nice in California. I get the impression, schwartzy that you're the only one in the whole big state of CA that would have kept it.

(I say if they were poor they would not be donating clothes, so they must be rich enough not to miss it. Thank you very much. Before you go judging, I'd buy the eye operation and a digital camera for some nice folks.)

Bad Karma to keep it Katertot.

I'm afraid I would have kept it, too. But I would have bought that digital camera for you and a eye job for me (I'm looking old).

How much you want to be she buys a lottery ticket now and she wins the fucking jackpot. Karma, it works in mysterious ways.

The eye operation/camera story is just a cover. She'll book herself in for a boob job and botox once the camera crews up and go...

Oy! I'd be tempted to keep it, but my above-reproach husband would make sure I didn't have a choice. He's into Karma (we live in Boulder, so it's kinda required) and I always say it doesn't pay for him to act so above reproach all the time, since people tend to "come back" with those they know (unfortunately for him, that means me), meaning his next life is screwed, anyway.

Eye job? Just doesn't sound as good as say blow job.

I would have bought some more bags or bales of clothes and searched the pockets. No way I'm giving back 30,000.
