$7.00 in cash in aisle 11 at Meijer while food shopping tonight. There was no one near to even ask about it. I took the money, but felt guilty. I decided to turn it over to the common good by buying instant lottery tickets from one of those machines that’s in every grocery store. All the money goes to education, right? Riiiiight.

So I buy a few instant tickets. I figure I have effectively donated the money that wasn’t mine anyway. I give the tickets to Mrs. TEH who scratches them off. We win $50.00. I was just meant to find money tonight and would not be allowed to do otherwise. Could be worse.

That's exciting news, and a good bit of luck for you, and the family.

That was my seven dollars by the way :)

You can keep the $43.

So why not turn it in to the store management? Someone might have inquired about it, especially if it were a child who had it and lost it. There parents might have taken them to ask hoping that someone would have turned it in.

I don't know that I would have and I know my own reasons but I just wondered why you didn't especially if you felt guilty.

It's just bad Karma.

How much bad karma does seven dollars bring?

Not much, but you see how your bad karma has now multiplied?

Now it's fifty bad Karma Points.

You know you are feeling burdend.

Release yourself from this ever growing chain of ill gotten gain - and Catholic Guilt.

You know my address.
