I walked to the shop a while ago, and I handed over a paper note which in local currency is much the same as 5 pounds, dollars OR euro. I was given $2 change. A few minutes later, I found a $5 note on the ground out on the footpath.

How much money have you ever found?

Once I went through the banks drive-thru, as I was driving away I counted the withdrawl. The teller accidently gave me an extra hundred dollar bill, so I turned right aound got back to the drive-thru window and gave it back to her. I said 'you accidently gave me too much'...she was very irritated that I was even insinuating that she could have made a good deed goes unpunished;)
I found a wallet with a lot of cash in it, brough it to the police station, and the person picked it up.(They were very happy!) and a few times I have found cash, but nothing larger than a 20.

I've never found money... but I "lost" it a couple of times (or been stolen?)

Most i've ever found is £20 at the Birmingham fashion show-found it with a mate so we split it £10 each-well it went towards a top!-i mean anyone could have claimed it and said it was theirs-so we made use of it! it was so busy and packed there!

I've found $20 in a bar; when I was a young kid I found a paper bag full of money in Peru, it had to be over $1000 but a car w/some guy came around the corner very slowly as if they were looking for it. I had their money.
I've also lost money...I left $60 on the drive-thru ATM machine once.
