hmmm, did what you were going to do anyway, then on Monday called the bank and reported it and took the receipt to the bank so they would know which account it came out of. If it had come from the bank and was just broken, then I would have forgotten it.
There is no sense in just stringing you guys along. You would just think I was a big tease anyway. I knew I could not keep the money. Besides, I had heard stories where this is a camera monitoring faces during a transaction anyhow. I figured I had better turn in the dough before they came to get me. I did not want to be arrested for stealing a lousy 200 bucks, right?
Also, i felt it was my public duty to turn in the money anyway. I would want the same favour bestowed upon me if I had mistakenly left my card in a bank machine. At certain times there are some people who appear to be acting suspiciously around this particular branch of the bank. They would appreciate, I am sure, an opportunity like the one I have described to you. There are many homeless and needy people living in the area as well. Some of them even sleep in this branch to keep warm in the winter. Many times I have gone into this branch to take out money and people are sleeping in there just to keep warm. One has to be cautious with his money and watch out for his personal safety. What I am saying of course, is that many people would have taken full advantage of the situation here and cleaned out this person's bank account.
Anyhow, I knew there was a branch open in the same area and I drove there. I handed the 200 dollars and the card to a representative of the bank. I explained the situation and they thanked me for turning in the money. I felt good of course and would appreciate someone doing the same thing for me.
