Friday the 13th unlucky or not???

My dad was born on Friday the 13th in the scary month of October so Friday the 13 has always been a white cloud in my family. Anyway for the unlucky or lucky part. Long story short I got a check from a friend about a month ago forgot about it until he called yesterday for something unrelated. So I head to his bank to cash the check. I get to talking to a guy in line about tile and if do it. the lady is standing there so I stop talking to the guy so she can my money infront of me. I normally just say ok and leave but the numbers didn't seem right. so let and called my buddy how much was that check for and he said i think it was $1200 i am like well better check your acct cause the girl gave me 2k . He says nope they took $1200.00. I won $800.00 at the bank today

Shawn, a phone call might be in order if you can't get there right away. With that amount of money missing, there's probably an ongoing investigation. Someone might have even lost their job already.

Kman that was my exact thought about the girl getting in trouble. I called them this morning. They had no idea what I was talking about and they would look in to it and get back with me.

Dinner is on Shawn!!

Just kidding you did the right thing, I have shrugged off a free bunch of cilantro that the cashier counted wrong. Still haunts me.

I couldn't live with myself if some poor mother was fired over a honest mistake. Everyone could use a extra $800.00 buck-a-roos , but I don't need it that bad

I did have every intention to return the money just wasn't going out of my way to do it. Till I thought about the poor person that might lose their job
