Glad to see there are still some decent people in this country! I remember finding a wallet with $40-0 in it at a famous amusement park in the mid 60's. I went to the security office and as it turned out the man that lost the wallet was there. He was an average Joe that had saved the money so he could take his rather large family to the park. He tried to give me a reward but I refused. People should do the right thing for the right reasons and not for money!

I read the story about 20 minutes ago and was thinking that kid is a stand-up guy! His parents raised him right.

As for the woman who STOLE from the blind man... there's a place in h-e-double hockey sticks for people like her.

But at least she'll have money to burn.

Joey Prusak, remember that name!
Prusak even got a call from none other than Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway company owns Dairy Queen.

This is the type of person we need in the White House.

Yes, there are a lot of good people. I was in a take-out shop and paid for my food order in cash. When I got home, I realized I had lost a hundred dollar bill. I called the store...asked the name of the gal who answered and asked her to look for my bill on the floor while I stayed on the phone. She came back and said she had it. It was amazing that no one else had picked it up in the fifteen minutes it took me to get home, know it was missing, and call. I told her I'd be right there and give her a reward for finding my money. I gave her 20 bucks and my sincere thanks. A hundred bucks was a lot of money for me then and even now. She was happy with the twenty and I'm sure happy with herself for her honesty.

Kudo's, cheers and applause to the young man involved.
It's a crying shame something that should be so common receives so many comments of surprise.

What are you doing on this thread, Le Simpleton? Not everything is amenable to your crackpot political bullshit.

Maybe, but in fairness, he supports your right to marry some hairy semi driver and take it up your pooper...
And we know your relieved about that, Pinky.
