I was at EXPO 86 and they had the Space Shuttle ride (like the Pirate Ship) that went in a big loop - the full 360 degrees. My family was sitting in front of it and some guy's money clip fell out of his wallet. It didn't stay together, so it was literally raining money off to one side and (I was a kid at the time) we were running around catching it. Great fun.
Of course we gathered up what we could and returned it to the guy whose pocket it fell out of as it was several hundred and his cash to spend on his family (my parents wouldn't have let us keep it if we tried anyways).
The other story was when I'd had my kit bag stolen from the side of a field in New West during a rugby practice. A few guys had their bags swiped and of course we were out on the field running with only our rugby gear on so it was our wallets, keys, clothes, etc. I got a call awhile later on during the big week where Surrey does the annual spring cleaning and one of the guys hired to do the extra work had picked up a bag that had a number of wallets and ID left in it - one of which was mine.
I'd already replaced my ID and wasn't rich at the time so had no money after doing so, but drove out to his house where he happily returned my ID. I'm sure he would have liked a small reward for his efforts, I just didn't have it, but I appreciated his help even after I'd replaced my IDs.
Tanev is going to EDM. I can put my life savings down on it
