I'm In One Dilly Of A Pickle Here, Guys!!

Greetings! It’s the Andy-San here with some questions.

Today at work, I found a $20 bill on the ground. It wasn’t in any of the self-checkouts and there were no customers around it. I picked it up and debated on whether I should put it in the coupon slot like I do for all the other money I find in the self-checkouts. Usually, I just find quarters or a $1 bill, but this is the first time in my life that I found a $20 lying on the ground. I held onto it and took it home with me. I feel so bad for doing that, but I came to this conclusion:

On one hand, when there’s change left behind, I’m supposed to put it either by my drawer or in a spot where customers won’t find it. On the other hand, the $20 bill in question wasn’t in the self-checkout machine, I didn’t see the customer drop the bill, and there was no one near it when I found it.

On one hand, I would be benefiting the most from the $20 bill because I only have one source of income compared to Wal-Mart’s numerous sources. I would probably spend it at Wal-Mart anyway so they’re not losing money. On the other hand, it’s still money that’s left behind.

I came to the conclusion that I should keep the $20 bill unless Wal-Mart asks for it since they most likely caught me on camera picking it up off the ground. I would be supporting the U.S. economy by buying something and I would be supporting businesses as well. Did I make the right decision? Please leave me a comment to tell me what you think about it.

Also, when I got off work today, I saw in the Electronics section a new Dell XPS 420. It has the same quad-core processor as the one computer that I want and it comes with a keyboard, mouse, 19 in. flatscreen monitor, Windows Vista Home Premium, and possibly speakers. All of this is for around $1,000. I could use my discount to take it down to $900, so for essentially $100 more than the other computer, I can get a monitor, mouse, keyboard, an OS, and possibly speakers. The only drawbacks is that it has 1 GB less RAM and I think the hard drive might be smaller. Other than that, it seems like a friggin’ sw33t deal!! What do you guys think?

In other news, my stepdad and I kicked out the jams today with Beat It. We heard it on the radio (the Fall-Out-Boy cover, which is pretty bitchin’, but not as good as the original) and decided to give it a whirl. I knew the main riff but I didn’t know the verse riffs and the bridge, so I look up the tab for it and away we went. Our timing was pretty crappy, but hey, it’s our first crack at the song so it’s all good. Also, I never realized how mixed-down the guitar parts are in Beat It. I could hear Michael and the drums, but the guitar was pretty quiet so it was kinda hard to keep time.

Well, I’m gonna get goin’. Good-night!
