If you purchased 10 brand new wallets and put $100 in each of them and left them in random places all over your city with a note asking, "If found please call this number", how many would be returned with the money still in them?

I left my wallet at walmart photo desk once. I had over $200 in cash. Someone turned it in with all the money still in it. Very thankful.

I had my small purse returned once (many years ago). I had left it in a phone booth in Grants Pass, Oregon. Someone totally anonymously returned it to me in San Francisco, saying they had taken out only enough money for postage. It contained a...

This is a resort/retirement city full of old, rich, white men and and a strong, military, middle class. A lot of temporary residents, thought, so I'm not sure. I said 6-10 because I think it would be the same in any city.

No, near it. If I lived in NYC, I would say one to two times.

The purpose of this question is to gauge your feelings about humanity in you city; are people mainly good or evil. I think all of them would be returned but I could be wrong.
