It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: Jackpot in the Dumpster?

Posted by   + Show Post


Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

What would you do if say... you found $20,000? Seriously. What WOULD you do? A man in Massachusetts had such luck when he was digging through a dumpster, opened a book and wah lah, there it was! He isn't sleeping so well though because he wants to do the right thing but hasn't been able to find the rightful owner.

Check HERE for more to this story.

1. So what would you do if you found $20,000?

2. Do you think you could sleep until you found the rightful owner?

3. If that money became yours in the end how do you think you would spend it?

While you share your thoughts with us be sure to let us know what you
would like us to serve you!!

Be sure to check out these posts while you wait:


We hope you have fun and enjoy your time with us!!

 If I find $20,000 I'll send you one ;)

Quoting Cafe Beth:

I would want to see a picture of that. LOL!


Quoting Liz132:

 What would I do? When I got home I'd be like "HALLELUJAH!" "THANK YOU JESUS!" as I tossed the money in the air and let it flutter down around me like green snowflakes. I wouldn't feel bad, I would buy a new car.

 mmm, yummy!

Quoting Cafe Beth:

Isn't that wild? I've heard that happens a lot when people get a big amount of money like that. I just can't imagine...

This is for you to enjoy!

My mil actually got an inheritance for 20000. It was gone in 6 days. Don't ask me on what, because she has nothing to show for it and is in more debt now than before she got that money.

I would go to the police so we can find the owner. I would never just keep it and spend it. Not thats its just worng but one can get in trouble, like what if this was money from a robbery and the numbers on the money are known and the it would come back to me.

If they arent able to find the owner I would pay off some bills. And then some stuff around the house.

 Family vacation-Disney World! lol

Right now, we are trying to plan an anniversary trip and I can't decide where I want to go

Quoting Cafe Beth:

A vacation would definitely be nice. Where would you want to go?


Quoting la_bella_vita:

 Chai Latte please

I would try and find the owner. If not, I would use it of a vacation and save the rest

That's definitely something I hadn't thought of. Smart thinking!

Here's a little something for you to enjoy. :)

Thank you! :) 

Quoting Cafe Beth:

I imagine so many different ways this could have happened. I love to know what really DID happen. :)

This is for you!


Quoting Lizzys_mommy13:

You would think someone would notice that much money missing. I definitely wouldn't make it too public because then somebody is going to of course claim it when it isn't theirs. I would try to find the owner and stop by the police station to see if anybody had reported money missing. After a month or so, if it wasn't claimed, if I really needed it I might use it. If not, I'd donate it to a charity that could use it.
