    Not sure I can still bump the good story thread since I know at some point we aren't supposed to anymore.

    So, here is a good story.


    Austrian bus driver returns half a million dollars found in bag

    (Reuters) - A Vienna bus driver who found a bag with 390,000 euros ($509,700) in cash inside handed the money over to police, who tracked down the elderly woman who had inexplicably left her fortune behind.

    The driver, identified by the Vienna transport authority only as Wolfgang R, was inspecting his vehicle at the end of the line when he found the bag in a seat behind the driver's.

    "At first I thought it was shopping or medicine," the Krone newspaper quoted him as saying. However, when he opened the bag he found a collection of 500-euro notes staring back at him.

    I couldn't do it. I'd keep it. Just being honest.

    Half agree.

    I'd probably keep like half as a finder's fee of sorts and just say "Hey, that's all that was in there." If someone's walking around with 500 grand, they probably won't miss it all that much :laugh2:

    If they were loaded I'd keep it. If it was every penny that had then I'd prob give some back....but some would go "missing" :)

    I'd return it. I handle large quantities of cash daily at work, so I'd just consider it an extension of my job , lol.

    Same philosophy as H.I. and Ed's in Raising Arizona.
