I think it was just a joke. I'm sure he/she does not really have a box of stolen wallets at home. LOL!

I'm not very well off & I live in an area where people are. I can't imagine being put in the position of whether to return a wallet or not as people keep such a tight grip of them here

I think where the wallet is makes a difference in who finds it and how it would be handled. Outside a payday loan office, come on. I would certainly have returned the wallet. Now ask me if it had $2100.00 in it. There are so many variables here it would be a lot of work to devise a really good test. I'd start with a large shopping mall to control the place and the neighborhood. Still, an interesting concept.

I am a very absentminded person in a family of absentminded people. When one of us has lost something, we have generally found that people are good about finding a way to get in touch and return it to us, even if it's a small thing.

The only time I can think of when this didn't happen was when I left my digital camera in the college library on night. Judging by the timing of when I left the library, when I called to see if it had been found, and when I checked the lost and found and realized that it wasn't there, it could only have been a library employee (probably one of those rascally young males! ) who pocketed it.

Oh for heaven's sake... Sundae Girl was asking if you (simian) get subtle jokes, not if you actually have wallets. Here, let's replay with commentary.

Ah look, a joke.

Another joke, implying that you actually killed the people whose wallets you have, rather than picking them up and keeping them as the thread has been discussing.

Simian does not get Brianna's joke, and thus instead suspects that she did not get his.

Sundae Girl, who got both jokes, is now subtly pointing out to simian that he in fact is the one who does not get subtle jokes. "The question is, do you (get subtle jokes)?" I think the answer here is clear.
