and say there was a fair amount of cash in it.
and let's say, for the heck of it -
some woman finds your wallet.
but she calls you and leaves a voice message
telling you she has it
and will call you later to discuss a reward.
do you really want to give a reward?
does it not feel like blackmail?
is she still a good samaritan?
she seeks profit from your misfortune.
so, she calls you back.
turns out all the cash is still in the wallet.
close to $140.
and you feel compelled to tell her to keep half.
she does not protest. not once.
not a single "no,no,no - i couldn't" noise.
she takes your money and returns your wallet.
you paid $70 to a woman for being decent.
i dunno. seems pretty steep to me.
but, im just that way.
