Who is the rightful winner?

2 friends go into McDonalds. Friend #1 buys friend #2 a coke. Friend #2 peels off her game peice and discovers 1,000,000 Monopoly Peice. Who is rightful owner of the winning piece? Friend #1 (The Buyer) or #2 (The Lucky One)?

Friend #2 Would be willing to split 50/50.

Friend #1 refuses to share and wants it all because it was bought with her money.

So who is the rightful winner?

  • #2. The coke and the cup was given to #2. If #1 wanted the game piece and potential winning, #1 should have peeled the game piece and then handed the cup away.

  • Friend 2 is the winner.
    The coke was purchased for friend 2. Friend 2 is being generous in offering to split the winnings and Friend 1 should stop being a greedy goof.

    If you purchase a scratch off lottery ticket and give it to a friend in a birthday card, would you expect the friend to split it if they win? It's a similar concept. The coke was purchased and given to the friend, therefor, the cup was theirs as well. I'm sure if friend 2 had tossed the cup out of a moving car and received a fine for littering, friend 1 wouldn't say "Hey, I purchased it, so I'll pay the fine."

  • Friend 1 should be happy with the half million and quit being greedy.

  • Friend #2 for all the reasons stated above. Friend #1 isn't much of a friend imo.

  • It belongs to #2, Friend #1 gave the soda to # 2 with no stipulations....


    But very nice of # 2 to want to share.....#1 is a greedy somebody and hope she gets nothing now...

  • It should be split 50/50 if they are really are friend because if it wasn't for #1, #2 would have never won
