Let's just present a hypothetical here involving a handsome man, we will call him "Stan" who just got back from a short excursion with his lovely lady who we will call "Georgina".
A few days after arriving home to the states, "Stan" went to his local money house (aka bank) to exchange what foreign currency he had left. Keeping a few pesos is nice but he had a bit more than that. So he went to the local money house and did the exchange. After leaving the bank he was almost 99% positive that the bank made an error. The error was 1) in his favor and 2) for what he suspected was a little more than $300.
Enter moral dilemma stage right. He didn't think that the teller would be responsible for this money but a few friends and loved ones said yes, indeed they would be. Turns out Stan (as is usually the case) was right, that the teller would not be held personally responsible for this error.
Anyway Stan was going to keep the money. Then Stan's car got towed. Towed and ticketed. Fuckah da police! And especially the traffic cops who give tickets!
Guess how much this tow and ticket would cost Stan? A little more than $300! Did you guess right? If not you're an idiot and can't follow a simple story.
Was this Gods way at teaching Stan a lesson? Was it God punishing him? I mean he already gave Stan a bit of a belly, why more punishment? WHY GOD WHY?!
Stan was pissed and vowed to fight da police. Stan spoke with Georgina and made a promise. He said that if this unjust ticket was reversed he would go to his money holding house (for your layman that's a bank) and tell them what happened. Georgina said hey maybe they will let you keep it anyway..Not bloody likey he thought to himself. Yes I wrote "likey".
So into the judges office Stan went with ticket in hand. He was nervous. He was sweating. He wanted this ticket adjudicated dammit!
AND IT WAS! The midget fairies rejoiced and flowers with wiener dog puppy stems fell from the sky as Stan twirled around in ecstasy.....Well at least till the Court officer said, "What the fuck you think you doing dancing up a pansie storm in this court..fuck outtta here!" Then he left.
NO TICKET NO TOW!
Now what about the bank?
Today I no wait "Stan" went to his nearby branch and sat down with the manager and explained the situation, even going so far as to adding in the whole car towing/ticket thing and basically blaming Georgina (who is a great girl despite this) for being his moral dictator. What was he going to say? Stan though that he wouldn't even blink and would just dip into his account and snatch that money like a fat man stealing french fries off the plate of a blind man.
The manager was totally cool and smiled at Stan's story, as you should be right now. He said chances are if they didn't catch it you have nothing to worry about. Woah!Wait, does that mean Stan gets a free pass? Basically yes, if Stan wants to.
The money does not come out of the tellers pocket and if Stan really want to then he can go down to the specific branch where it happened and they will probably deduct the extra money from my balance. I mean his balance. Stan's balance.
What should Stan do in your opinion?
