If You Found $40K In Your Couch What Would You Do? [Poll]
Here's a burning question for you...if you found $40,000 in a couch you had picked up at a yard sale or the Salvation Army, what would you do with the money? That question is based on a real life situation that three SUNY New Paltz students found themselves in recently according to WABC.
The couch had oddly lumpy couch cushions but it only cost the students $20 at a Salvation Army store. After a few months of having it, they noticed that one of the lumpy cushions had a zipper on the bottom of it and unzipped it to find envelopes containing $40,000.
They were ecstatic of course and fantasized about how they were going to spend it until they discovered a bank deposit slip with the rightful owner's name on it. Unanimously, they decided to try to find the owner and were successful. It turned out to be a 91 year old woman who didn't trust banks and had stashed her cash in the couch, which had been sold by her children after she broke her hip and ended up in the hospital. Needless to say, the woman was so grateful to have the money returned, that she rewarded the three with $1000 each for returning her money.
Now, put yourself in the same situation and remember this is an anonymous poll so answer honestly.
