    what will the police do with $10/$20/$100? they will probably put it into some cop kitty and blow it on drinks after their shift finishes 😂

    I get that it's important to do the right thing, but there's a point at which practicality takes over.

    😂
    I can't believe this thread is still going. Never knew people were so passionate about $20. Tempted now to drop $20 on the floor in woolies and see what happens 😂

    Default Spin off: if you found $20 on the ground at the mall would you pick it up?

    Actually they take your name and contact details and if it remains unclaimed for ex number of weeks they will call you and you can have it. When this has happened to me I tell them to donate it to their association (which support families of officer who die or are injured on duty, injured officers etc...).

    wouldn't be worth the petrol driving down to the cop shop to collect it 😂

    This is pretty much the opposite of what happened when I attempted to hand in money to the police.

    When I was about 11 we lived in a unit block & I found about $3000 on the drive I picked it up and took it straight up to the landlords apartment he had the collected the rent and put it in a bag on top of his car and forgot about it. He was so grateful I handed it back in he gave me $100.

    I like to think I'd hand it in somewhere. It's important to me to always try to do what's right, rather than what's easy. I can't control what other people do, only my own actions.

    Before picking up the $20 I would look around first to see if there was a hidden camera.

    I'd pick it up, ask the people around me if it's any of theirs then take it to customer service if it isn't. I've found a pandora bag in a toilet at my local shopping centre, I took it to centre management. The lady who bought the jewelry rang me maybe 10 minutes later thanking me for handing it in.

    I would keep it. I've lost money before and I've never though those bas*ards who found and kept it! I'd be annoyed and would move on.

    To me it's one single note that fell out of someone's hand / bag / pocket an accident and unfortunate and hard to trace where it came from. It's not stealing = not illegal so I don't have a problem with it.
