I was in line at the corner store just now buying my "its a long day that doesnt want to end" rations (1bottle of Coke 1 ice cream cone). And as i was standing there I pulled my wallet out of my pocket. Today I am wearing loose running pants because I had a PE class this morning. Inside the pocket was a $20 bill that fell out when I pulled my wallet out. It hit the floor behind me, the only reason I knew it did was because I happened to feel it let loose from the pocket and into the air as I took the wallet out. Before I reached down to pick it up, I set my coke and ice cream on the counter. But while I did that the guy behind me swooped in on my $20 and stuffed it in his pocket without saying a damn thing. By the time I set my stuff down and turned around to pick up my the bill, he was already standing at attention and just taking his hand out of his pocket. I looked him square in the eye and stuck out my hand palm up. He reached his hand back in the pocket and gave me my 20 back. But I just got to thinking what an asshole he was thinking he was going to get away with stealing my $20 like that. Another one of those sad tell tale signs that nobody gives a fuck about nobody anymore. So if you're in His situation... what would you have done? Are you the kind that would expect this from the people around you, and so justify the action by snatching the $20 yourself and hoping to get away with it? Or are you the kind that will nudge the owner and let them know they've dropped their money?
