"I put money in a paper clip, so I didn't have to carry a purse or wallet at the parade in December. I lost it, of course. I put an ad in the paper with no answer, of course. I just want to know if the person who found it really needed it?"

Yes - I really needed a paper clip.

"Is anybody else just plain sick of hearing about cancer? Is anybody else just sick of the word cancer?"

Yup. Cancer sux. I bet people who HAVE it are just plain sick of it as well.

Why don't you start one of those email petitions to ban it?

After two and a half hours of continuous local news with an average of 3 weather reports each half hour (15), Wesh channel 2 decided that they needed to cut into the NBC news telecast to let us know that it's raining in Flagler County. The local stations are totally out of control when it comes to weather reporting.

Did you really expect for the person who found it to look through the paper to try to find out who lost the money? I wouldn't have thought in a million years to look in the paper to try to find the owner of a wad of cash I found. Now if I found a wallet or a purse with ID in it I would've easily been able to return your belongings, of course.

I ask you, who doesn't need a wad of money?

"A big thanks comes from this Orange County teacher who tries to make sure the children have holiday-themed art activities." Typical, FloriDUH "teacher," doesn't know Michael's coupons are in the newspaper all the time, mailed to regular customers, AND online 99% of the time. Way to go genius. Keep teaching those kids. Sigh.

To the stupid woman who carried her money on a paper clip, you got what you deserved. Did you have your name written on the bills? Do you think everyone in Orlando reads the Sentinel? Wake up and start taking care of your money. I've read silly things here before, but you are a nut case and take the cake!
LICENSE PLATE

I thought I was doing a good deed. I found a license plate in the middle of the road so I flagged down a police officer. Then I got detained 45 minutes with 200 questions. It's the last time I help Casselberry police.

The problem is they're so used to people being dishonest, that when somebody is in fact honest they don't know what to do. I found a wallet in Winter Springs last year. I turned it in to the police department. What I got was "Ma'am, go get your license. We need to make a copy of it. Then I had to fill out my name, address and telephone number on a piece of paper too. WHAT? I was furious. It was close to 5:00 p.m. Friday traffic, and I just got detained for doing something nice!

I totally agree. I'm sick of it too. It's Florida, people. It rains every single day in the spring and summer. Big deal.

One never, ever addresses any Casselberry cop if at all avoidable. That department has 2 maximums for their LEO's, IQ and height. Without exception they are petty and obnoxious, and I thank GOD my home is handled by Seminole County Sheriffs Dept.

..."I'm ticked off at the slob at a fitness gym who ate a banana right there in the lap pool and then threw the peel on the side of the pool. He's almost as nasty as the guy who left his used dirty Q-tips on the bench in the locker room. Come on guys, give me a break."...

Did you say anything to him, or did you just shake your head and watch him leave??? If you said nothing, then you are just as much a part of the problem as he is and you have NO right to complain. If you didn't say anything, I hope you at least picked it up and threw it away, or did you leave the area knowing there was a safety hazard ???

That could have been because, after a certain time limit, if the wallet goes unclaimed, you might be able to get the money inside.

I think all these entries are written by old people. I mean who would put an ad in the paper if they lost money strapped together with a paper clip??

I hate that! Especially when it can be addressed by a banner on the bottom of the screen. After the first 2 minutes all the reporters do is fumble around for words and repeat themselves anyway...

Yes - I really needed a paper clip.
And I really needed the money. Money. Paperclip. No id. You're damn right its my money now. Who reads the classified ads? Maybe now you'll learn to take better care of your cash.

"To the rude lady with the long, black, stringy hair who owns an "upscale" children's boutique: So, you think you can sell your overpriced, average looking clothing to all of us moms just because we can afford it? We can buy our tots "upscale" clothing wherever we choose, and it won't be at your store anymore! We have had it with your disrespectful, ungrateful, bipolar attitude! Get some meds, lady!"

I don't know, if children are still in the "tot" stage, why on earth buy them "upscale" clothing, anyhow? I mean, they're going to wear it maybe one season and then grow out of it. Maybe I'm a bit old-fashioned, but while I can see spending a bit more for good-quality childrens' clothing, I can't see paying the "upscale" prices just to keep a tiny child "in style."

I agree with you...it is silly, but it's great for us cheapskates who pick it up at all these 'upscale' garage sales or thrift shops after barely being used!
