a woman from Galveston came in to claim the cash, which she described in detail


"It's kind of greenish, about so long and so wide. It has a picture of a former president and some numbers on it."

Wow. That husband was dead meat. Nevermind the money. He tried to give away her shoes.

"She was so grateful," he said. "She was crying."

$3,300 was her "life savings?" I'd be crying too, but not because I got the money back.

If this ever happened to me, no one else would have known about until I came back from every brothel in Nevada.

Sure, if the police would have gotten involved a little more, I'm sure the couple could have recovered that $1,600 a lot quicker.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness

Right? It's like they aren't even trying.

If anyone needs me, I'll be checking my bank account every 5 minutes like a madman hoping I'll get paid in time to round up a turkey and whatnot before Thursday.

FTA- "A Texas man thought he was being charitable, but ended up being a little too generous: Included in a donated pair of shoes to Goodwill was his wife's life savings."

What a heel.

Never, ever take something out of your wife's closet and assume it's junk, or 'she doesn't need this'. We stash shiat everywhere, cash and valuables included. What do you expect from a creature born with a storage pouch?

This is just the husband being an asshole. He threw out something that wasn't his. He didn't even go to retrieve it. Sickening.

that's more than me... although, I have 100k+ in school debt, so saving money is actually losing money. whatever interest gained in savings is lost by the interest of the school debt.

/ plus, i'm not old and have no children, so, nothing really matters.

QFT. My shoes usually cost that much, depending on the details I ask for.

our insane mom wound up not going back to her hoarder house after seizures. you can pick through just so many hundreds of items and thousands of pieces of paperwork before shiat just starts getting thrown in garbage bags. tag sale on saturday an honest lady came back to return a $50.00 bill she found in a fold-out box of buttons & notions i sold her cheap. i know it's only $50.00 but dammit she restored my faith in people, bless her heart.

I don't think Ben Franklin was ever a president.

just wondering......what happens if
a. you are a customer and find the money and stuff it into your pocket and a employee sees you
b. you are a customer and take the shoes to the register and a employee sees it.... [probably doesn't matter if you know its in there]

my thinking is either way the stores win. putting it in your pocket is thief/shoplifting. when trying to pay for it the store could say its a pricing error or obviously not meant to be sold.

My grandpa has tons of those fake books that are really for storage, and he has a thing of "bleach" under the sink that screws apart and is filled with money. Probably a lot more like that, but that's the only one I know about. We're probably going to end up unknowingly tossing/donating a lot of cash when he dies.

If only people would understand that there are these places called "banks" where you can safely put your money and even earn interest on it.

probesport: Thrift Shop


Ignoring the video, I actually love shopping at thrift stores. I started as a kid with my parents(good memories!), and it still amazes me what you can find if you look around. My best hauls were a complete Shogun Warrior Mazinger Z with both swords and the finger missiles in PERFECT condition about 15 years ago. I paid 3 bucks for it, and let's just say that it's worth substantially more. More recently, I picked up a Turbografix-16 and a ton of games as well as a System card 3 for around 40 dollars, and a VERY rare Mac game for 2 bucks that is actually worth about 80 times that. And that stuff doesn't include all the books, games, and toys over the years that weren't worth a lot but were great to find. Heck, recently I got a few dozen laser disks and a working player for less than a hundred dollars.
