    A man in front of me in the queue dropped it, I thought it was rubbish (because I'm not used to seeing them) and then put it in my pocket to put in the bin.

    Suuuuure :ninja2:

    You know that's technically illegal? :innocent:



    I would probably just spend it on chocolate

    This happened to me once, kind of. A man in front of me in the queue dropped it, I thought it was rubbish (because I'm not used to seeing them) and then put it in my pocket to put in the bin. When I got outside to the bin and realised, the man who I thought had dropped it was rounding a corner and didn't stop when I shouted him.
    It was three days before student loans were due in at the start of my third year, I was knee deep in dissertation research and had caught fresher's flu. I spent it on a Chinese, a tube of Pringles, a bottle of wine, lots of paracetamol and put the rest in the bank to get my mum her (very overdue at this point) birthday present.

    Looked like a crumpled chocolate wrapper or something so just put it in the front pocket of my hoodie.

    depends - If I had to spend it, I would probably buy something nice for my wife..

    If I did not have to spend it, then realistically it would probably just go into my wallet, and then be spent allongside my normal money on what ever expense/purchase happens next..

    I'd question their motives as to why they have given me the £50.

    Depends where I was and how drunk I was at the time.

    (I'm assuming this is in a bar environment, since I can't imagine anyone giving away £50 sober)

    I wouldn't accept it in the first place, it would feel wrong as it's not mine to keep.

    If I had to accept it then I'd either donate it to a charity or burn it.
    Do you also burn gifts you receive?

    Save it. Nothing I urgently need to spend it on right now.
