If you found a $100 at the library, would you pocket it or turn it in? What about at a diner or pub? Confess!
Depends on where I found it. If I saw someone drop it, of COURSE I am going to give it back to them. And I always, always return money I find in wallets, if the wallet has an ID or contact info in it. If I just find cash however, it goes home with me. Heartless, I know, but I live in a huge city with a million+ people. My other options are leave it where it is and let someone else steal it (which would take about two minutes, probably less), or hand it in to lost and found so the store employees can steal it. I had a manager (!!!) at a really nice store try to steal my ipod once, by pretending they didn't have it in their lost and found, so I have no doubt 100 dollars would be pocketed like that.

Lost money rarely (if ever?) finds its' original owner in Las Vegas. I've found money when I was desperate for it, and I've also lost money...I hope it found someone who needed it. I think it's just a balancing of the citywide karmic scales...sometimes you're the spider and sometimes you're the fly...
