  • I don't know if I have ever lost any money except maybe with an IRA. the most I ever found was a 50 dollar bill at a bus stop it was just sitting there when I got off the bus

  • well i thought i'd lost it but remembered later what i did with it. on my 21st bday i was so drunk i walked outside the bar asked for a cab to take me home ( was w/at least 3 people who hadn't been drinking so they could drive me and others home but i was trashed and forgot that...) and ended up giving the cabbie $200 for a $20 trip. it took about a week for me to figure out where my money went b/c i knew i hadn't paid for any drinks that night...the most i've found was a $100 bill in the floor of the kitchen at a restaurant i worked in, gave it to management and told them whoever was short at closing it was probably theres, b/c i'd dropped money before and had other servers just walk w/it and it end up being all my tips for the night. thats just wrong

  • I found the wallet that belonged to Pastor John Jimenez of Rock Church, I never looked inside other than the I.D., but it weighed quite a bit and was almost round in shape.
    He was one of the sweetest people I ever got to know, and his wife, I googled him just now and found out he has passed on. so sad.
