    It was Raining Money

    Did anyone happen to catch the story of raining money here in Georgia this past week? An armored car traveling down I-285 had one of its rear doors to open spilling the contents of a money bag and $ 175,000.00 currency. Vehicles immediately began pulling to the side of the road and folks began scooping up cash from the roadway as if they were some grand prize winners on a game show. This was all captured on video along with some license plate numbers. A young man turned in about $ 1000.00 the next day that he had collected. I believe the last I heard, just under $ 2,000.00 has been returned thus far. Good luck on the rest.

    If i was in Advertising, I would quickly make a "Need to Get Away" commercial for an airline with its hub in Atlanta featuring these poor guys from the armored truck.

    What? It's paper money flying around! It's lost, then found cash, not stolen. IMO. If I have a $20 fall out of my pocket on the sidewalk, and the person behind me picks it up, are they a thief? No. No different for an armored truck.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    One time it happened they offered immunity to people to turn in the cash they had plate numbers then also but if they had your plate number say you came in to return what you took how do they know how much you took lol

    Surprised by some of the responses. Situational ethics. Had it been an old person at the grocery line accidentally dropping cash on the floor, would you keep it? Even if nobody else was watching? Does it make a difference that the cash was lost by a corporation?

    I have found & returned several wallets and purses over the years. It never occurred to me to check for and take the cash.

    Seriously Though, My other post was in Jest,
    But Really ? the Money on the Road is Obviously Insured.
    Insurance rates will Never Drop No matter What !

    Most People Don't check their Homeowners to see if it Covers $300.00 in a Wallet,
    They just Hurt. odds are if it does, their rate will increase. & They could eventually be paying Thousands More, as it will never revert Back to the old rate.

    there is a Difference in my mind. I Would Not Judge someone who
    Picks up even A Bag of $50,000 in bills from The Street.
    & If on Their jury, they would either be acquitted or it would be a hung Jury.

    Yep it was already paid back through insurance. The driver probably lost his job and the beat goes on and the beat goes on....drums keep pounding rhythm to my brain.
