When I was 8, I found a 20 dollar bill at Disneyland. When I remarked excitedly out loud about it, the elderly female clerk claimed it was hers (even though she was on the other side of the store) and actually physically took it from my hand before my parents could say anything...

Mean old lady.


Man. Thats when some people should be smited down by higher powers. Luckliy if that happens in forums we have MOD's but in the D-land, doubtless anything goes.

These aren't really lucky finds I guess, its funny though.

When I was going through my pot smoking phase in highschool, I would hide money around my room; inside books, in my suit, between my mattress, pinned behind posters, etc.

Well, I guess I had forgot I had hidden money a few times. I've come across three $20s; one hidden in the pages of an old text book, one pinned behind a poster, and another in the inside pocket of my suit. Haha.

I'm always finding cool *hit in my dreams, like wads of cash, diamonds, jars of quarters, etc. I've woken up a few times only to realize I didn't have whatever I had found in my dream. Its very disappointing, LOL.

HA! I hear ya. I had a dream a few years back when I was really hard up for money, and I dreamt I'd found an old paycheck for $400 and put it my safe, so when I woke up, I thought it was real and then I couldn't find it. I was bullshit for a good 15 minutes until I realized I'd never keep a paycheck laying around and not cash it, and that it never happened.

i work as a doorman in a nightclub in england and whilst you normally find money the best thing i've found was a watch..

the story goes

we had an act on inside the club and i was on stage to stop anyone getting on.. when i'd finished i returned to the door and there were loads of people that had been refused (for whatever reasons) and there in front of every body outside was this watch i picked it up and asked all the guys i was working with if it was thiers or if there had been any trouble
everyone said no so i pocketed the watch and when i looked it was an armani watch so i took it to the jewellers and had it valued and it was worth £100 minimum....
needless to say it looks great on my wrist
