    [​IMG] So that's the one with integrity and professionalism!

    Did they miss their big catch? 95 $100 bills sounds like a possibly structured transaction ... :D Yesaifinkso :D

    I wonder when the bad apples will drive him out for returning the cash instead of sharing it with them.

    How much was it when he found it?

    Awfully damned convenient that this "warm fuzzy" pops up in middle of an avalanche of stories on TSA crimes, passenger abuses and public criticism. This is a set up as sure I am typing this sentence.

  10. Two thoughts --

    1) If this is true, somebody did the right thing. It shouldn't even be a story. Happens all the time, every day -- people give back stuff that somebody lost. It reflects poorly on the TSA that this isolated event is newsworthy.

    2) If you didn't have to completely take all your stuff out of everywhere and half your clothes off, this guy probably wouldn't have lost his envelope in the first place.

    Oh, phuleeezzze! Give the dude some credit, will ya? He returned all of it ... just because ... he was afraid that he was being set-up by undercover FBI agents. :D

    You nailed it!

    He returned money that didn't belong to him, which is what what most decent people would do. It’s just newsworthy that a TSA didn't molest or rob someone who entered security.

    I guess TSA workers are held to a different standard. A very, very, low standard.

    "The action of one individual in no way reflects on the outstanding job our more than 50,000 security officers do every day," the TSA added.

    That would make a great comment on these stories. I bet people would actually believe TSA said it.
