    Ovid man returns $43,000 found in secondhand couch cushion

    A man bought a used sofa from a Habitat for Humanity Restore. He and his daughter found over $43,000 in the ottoman. He returned the money to the owner, despite an attorney telling him he had no legal obligation to do so. What would you do?

    That's a tough decision. I'd probably keep it but part of me would think. Damn this might be some poor old lady's life savings or something.

    I returned a billfold once that had over 200 hundred dollars in it. I found it coming out of a racetrack. I kept 20 bucks and left the guy a note saying I was going to have a few beers on him. I'm sure he didn't mind getting all his credit cards, drivers license and 90% of his money back. I gave it to a cop at the campground I was staying at. Then again the cop probably kept the rest -- who knows.

    Misthios I love my job. Don't you?

    If my conscience got the best of me I'd return it less a sizable finders fee.

    I’m down with @rod on this one. You’re the idiot that left it in there, but I’m taking a cut. If that bothers you, I’ll keep it all.

  8. Hell I would go back to the store to see if they had the matching loveseat and recliner. Might be some more hidden cash.

    Probably in the walls. Someone will or did find it when they tear the walls out.

    No way! Jesus taught that if you find a treasure in a field, you sell all your possessions to buy the field. Then the treasure is yours.

    Legally, you bought the furniture, it and everything in it are yours. I, personally, would attempt to secretly find out who donated it, figure out the situation, and make a decision based on that, while sitting in the driver's seat of my new corvette.
