Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I agree with you. I would have, as your wife did, attempted to see who dropped it. But having failed to locate the person, I would not have given the bill to the cashier. I know of no CA law that would require her to do so. I also would not have called the police. What would they do?????
Thank you Richard.
I guess I just needed confirmatrion of what I knew to be right in this situation. I do think that the store has the ethical right to take our phone number and name in case the person that lost the money returned to ask if it had been found. We of course would return it. I do have a bad feeling that the cashier and the bag boy split the funds laughing at my wife. God help them if they did. My brother used to work there. Im sure he could tell me just who to write to.
Thank you again for youyr help.
