    A six pack of beer is a fine reward for something like that.

    Decent fucking beer though.

    If I turned in someone's wallet and they bought me a 6 pack of Natty Ice I would punch them and steal their wallet.

    like if you had five hundo smackeroonies in there then I'd say give em a nice lil reward

    if it's like a fiver then give em a werthers original

    Really though, returning the wallet saves him a huge amount of hassle, replacing bank cards and ID is a big thing. Even if there was no money in it.

    For me it was literally a matter of losing probably a week of work while I got re-badged etc etc

    It was an ENORMOUS help

    What if that's all they could afford

    10% of whatever cash you had in there would be the legally required reward here

    plus any costs they might've incurred while traveling to the guards to turn it in

    One of which is a trap card, for obvious reasons. If they draw it you get their wallet, as is the custom.

    so I sent a text cos I'm at work, in the reply they dodged the bit where I asked for an address. The reward was not refused OR accepted, he's outwitted me this time but what's my next move in my quest to be a half decent bloke.

    Yeah the 'give me your address so I can send you a reward' seems like kind of a trap and I wouldn't do it, either

    I lost my wallet when I was living in Japan whike I was doing a month long study program in Sapporo. I has the equivalent of over 300 dollars in there (cashed based society and a night on the town) my foreigner card that I need to have like, legally with me at all times, and a bunch of other things that would have been amazingly difficult to replace.

    Sadly I didn't get to thank the person who found it as they left it anonoymously at the front desk of the store complex I lost it in, but man I woukd have bought them two hours of drinking at any izakaya of their choice.

    Ask him if he wants to meet at a neutral location.

    Like I don't know in front of the United nations in new York or somewhere.

    Stalk the person until you know everything that they love and are about, then give them a gift with your insideously discovered knowledge. That gift should be a lock of your hair, tied up with a ribbon of the finest cloth of gold, delivered on a bed of rose petals inside a mahogany box carved with the likeness of their face.

    Alternatively, ask for an email address and just do an egift card if they don't want to give out their address.

    This is horribly rude. It's a gift so you should politely accept it.

    Then insist they share it with you to ensure mutual suffering.

    I've never lost my wallet.

    But I tend to have pretty large wallets.

    hard to lose out of the front pocket of my jeans too.

    I lost my wallet at a Ren Fair when I was 16 or so. I didn't have anything worth worrying about in there.

    Two stories.

    My brother lost his wallet in NYC and the bartender had it fedexd back. He wrote a letter first to the address on his license saying to call and describe it so he could confirm he still lived there. It had like... 500 dollars in it And came back with all the money. Sometimes people are really nice, will go out of their way to help. That guy could have taken all the money scott free but didn't. That's good people.

    The other is that I found a camera and got it returned to its owner, my landlord knew which apartment she was in. The next day there was a knock at my door at around 9 am. And I'm like.... WTF who's knocking here that early? I just woke up. So I answered the door in my boxers.


    The 55ish old lady looked startled, asked if I was the guy who found her camera, quickly handed me a gift card for coffee and left. So on the one hand, a free week of coffee. On the other hand I basically showed a grandmother the goods.

    and I wonder about my neighbors even though I don't have them
    but they're listening to every word I say

    So this is kind of an advice-y thread? I need some.

    I was hit by a vehicle on my way to work this morning (as a pedestrian). The person who hit me is a teacher at the school I work at. What should I do? (I'm home from the ER and mostly ok, but in pain)
