Finders are Keepers

A couple were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. They had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired.

Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they’d shared where Andy had carved “I love you, Sally.”

On their way back home an armored car passed by and a bag of money fell out, practically at Sally’s feet. She picked it up and not knowing what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money: an even $100,000!

Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back!”

Sally said, “finders keepers,” and put the money back into the bag and hid it in their attic.

The next day, two FBI men were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money and knocked on the door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?”

Sally said, “No.”

Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it in the attic!”

Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”

The agents turned to Andy and began to question him. One said, “Tell us the story from the beginning.”

Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday….”

The first FBI agent interrupted him with a heavy sigh and turned to his partner. “I told you this was a waste of time. Let’s go.”
