Why throw money away?!

Because it was not "new ones"! You know Japanese houses are small, so throw out old stuff when you get something new. Like money.

Please throw it my way next time, I'll recycle it for you.

Why the hell would the trash guy tell any one what he found. He should have just pocketed it.

aloha japan I tend to agree with you, I hope he receives it if it isn't claimed. but I doubt that will happen. Maybe someday his honesty will be rewarded.

I would still do the right thing and recycle it for them.
