Sounds like a good opportunity for people to show their class. Some radio or news personalities should pick this up and run with it.

I saw a lot of weird shit on that exact same commute (I drove it for a year and a half), but flying money was not one of them. If it is the Pittsburgh Police handling it, good luck making ANY progress, they are lazy fucks, IMHO of course. Also, the residents in that area are...less than desirable. He won't get anything back.

does that suck? yes.

do i feel bad for him? kinda sort of, but not really.

those stupid enough to go anywhere with that much cash deserves a slap upside the head. tellers checks are $1.50 if you can come up with 75 $100 bills then an extra $1.50 shouldn't be too hard.

sorry. no sympathy here. yes, sucks to be him and no i hope it never happens to me or anyone else and i would not wish it upon anyone. but come on people, what ever happened to common sense?

That blows. Good lesson for the rest, I guess.

Folks could still show their class and return the money. If stupidity was the criteria, we'd all be broke.

monkey & I think alike on this one. All he had to do was write a cheque when at his Mothers place & if he did not have an account that accepted cheques then a certified cheque or tellers cheque in his wallet would have done the trick. Guess he just wanted to sort of surprise her with all the money ------ but then look at who was surprised.

Unfortunately money flying around is basically "finders keepers" to most people.
