    So what have you found and kept?

    I found a brand new portable DVD player at my bank machine late one night. No ID on it, and I waited in the restaurant across the street for an hour in case anyone came back for it. I also regularly looked for anyone posting a note there. Had someone proved it was their player, I would have handed it back instantly.

    No one did - so now it's mine.

    Was there a DVD in it? And if so what was it?

    The only think I think I have found and kept would have been a dollor on the floor. Anything else of value can be turned into security or the closest business to where it was found in case someone comes back looking for it.

    On a similar note a friend of mine found Jesus. Not sure if he was planning on returning him.

    wow so instead of calling the bank the next day, or watching for the paper or even thinking about finding the owner you assume its yours? I am sorry, its this kind of behavior that makes me cringe.

    It's from an old saying, "swing hard and hope you hit the sweet spot".

    Not really that suspicious. I know a lot of people who would have kept it. And they probably wouldn't have even waited around to see if someone came back for it.

    Well, I just found it weird that for an hour no one else saw that huge DVD player and picked it up? And who leaves a huge device like that by an ATM other than a thief? IDK.

    There's the best post yet. Who cares? Why post about this? There were no questions, no advice sought, just hey I found a VCR. Rather confounding to me.

    Dude, if I found a DVD player, you bet your sweet *** I'd be all over the place going, "Hey, guess what I found? Guess what I found and you didn't? Neener neener neener.
