What if the person you stole from needed that $100 for their kids medication? Or rent, or the electric bill? But hey, eff them, you decided that your car repair was more important, right?

If you truly felt bad about the act of stealing $100 you know doesn't belong to you, you'd make it right. Not come out with, "Oh well, I already spent it, I hope they don't catch me!" That isn't contrition. You aren't any kind of a hero here. I truly hope you wind up with ulcers over this.

The thing with money vs. items is that you can give a description of the item and have people give more detail to claim it. Everyone will want money.

How's she a 'thief'? She found money, which I doubt anybody saw.
Personally, if a customer (which is probably who lost it) came back in looking for it, I'd return it. But there's no way I'm turning a hundred dollars over to a manager who's going to tell me "I'll take care of it." then put it in his own pocket (if nobody comes looking for it).
I doubt they check cameras unless there's a reason to.


I would just stay quiet.

This is true even though im not trying to make my situation seem less wrong. And i wish the users would stop saying that i am.

I understand when its said its store property but i think that doesnt make sense. No one has reported missing money as far as i know.

It's theft because the money does not belong to OP. Because someone else may come looking for it. Because if you were to drop or lose something, presumably you'd want to get it back, not skip off happily singing a cheerful song about "I guess someone else gets my phone/wallet/credit cards/dog, teehee!"



It's only 'theft' if you know the origin of the lost item.

The origin of the lost item is the store. It was found in the store. The money belongs to the store, period.

You'll be fine. Nobody came back looking for their money ... stop listening to those calling you a 'thief.'

"Yes, it is illegal. Depending on the laws in your area, it either still belongs to the person who lost it, or more likely it belongs to the store itself. You have no right to it, regardless of the amount of money."

What a convenient rule ... The manager would have made a quick hundred if she turned it over to him/her.
