    $185,000 Check

    Quote Originally Posted by Associated Press
    NORWICH, Connecticut - Reggie Damone just wanted to jot down a phone number when he picked up what he thought was litter on a sidewalk this week. But what he found was an envelope containing a $185,000 check.

    Damone, who receives government-issued food stamps for low-income workers and works at a McDonald's fast food restaurant, said he did not think twice about trying to cash it. Instead, the 47-year-old took a bus Monday from his Jewett City home to a bank and returned the check to the niece of the landlord to whom the check was written.

    She thanked Damone with a $50 bill.

    Damone said that although he knew $185,000 could pay his rent and other bills for a long time, he was never tempted to try to cash it and splurge.

    He says he remembered his mother's words: If you take something, you lose three times that amount —and if you do something good, something good comes back to you
    Morals kill the world in the spur of the moment.

    Oh jesus christ, what a moron, I would have taken that check. The whole karma shit is just some bullshit made by a hippie.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Ever heard of a deposit?

    Anyways, I'd of called the guy who wrote me it, and have him void the check so no one could use it. -.-

    Who's to say it isn't void.
