    A tenner at cinema. Lucky day, got extra popcorn.

    Then there was one time some lady with a pram and a van claimed a 20 on the floor was hers whilst I was walking by.

    She said, "no that's mine."

    I gave it to her but I shouldn't have, lucky I have respect for old women and single mums.

    1.3 million views => £200 ?!

    That's a CPM of around $0.25 but YouTube is normally around $1.00 - $1.25. Really poor income on that one.
    Everyone has adblock nowadays otherwise it would be a lot higher.

    You should have told her she's too old to be having babies!

    She coulda been the nan. Idk. Just saw a woman at the supermarket struggling with her bags and small children running around, looking windblown and stressed, and I decided whether it's hers or not let her have it. Wouldn't you?

    Yeah, there was an extra £600 quid in the house rent account after we had finished paying rent for our old place. Was a pain in the arse having to make a spreadsheet and go through payments. But it turned out both me and another flatmate had double paid rent one month by accident so we have an extra £300 in our pockets. No idea how I didn't notice.

    i found £110 on my doorstep a couple of years ago.
    Picked it up, knocked on neighbours doors and asked if they dropped any money. no one said they had so i kept it - gave half to mum and spent the rest on a bag i had been eyeing up

    I mean like a anything... An unexpected bonus, finding a £5 note on the bus, winning a prize, contest, raffle, lottery etc

    I got an enormous surprise when the HMRC sent me £800 I tax I had overpaid. I didn't even apply for this or anything, it just said..."you have overpaid tax, we worked it out, here's £800".
    Only capital? Or anything? I did find an iphone that someone left behind on the tube on Saturday. I called him just before he left and gave his phone to him. I also found an oyster card on my way home on Sunday. I was going to hand it in to a tube station the next day as that is what is says you should do on the back of the oyster card but I lost it

    sweet! Sounds like a monopoly card lol

    Cheers. Someone did the exact same thing to me when I lost my iphone last month, but went through a lot more effort to have my phone returned. Even more so now I would never think to keep anything, even If I found £20 on the floor,
