1. Who carries around their life savings in cash? Not only that, if I had my life savings in cash (which doesn't amount to nearly as much, by the way), I'd make sure it never left my sight. I'd keep an eye on this woman. An Arizona driver's license, $43K in her purse, found in Wyoming. I'll bet she's moving away to start a new identity in a new state. http://www.jsonline.com/news/metro/nov04/276550.asp
2. They didn't know the money was there. ďI canít believe we had that much money in our possession and didnít even know it,Ē Simanton said. In other words, "$&%^! If we knew that money was there, we never would have returned it!"
3. They got a reward of $200. That's good money, no doubt. But it's only .4% of the value of the purse. That's like finding a wallet with $50 in it and being rewarded with a quarter.

Actually, unless you're quoting from a different report, he was only saying that he couldn't believe they were unknowingly walking around with 43K. What they would have done had they known is only left for you to guess at.

Torchslasher, if you're inferring that from what I said, I was just making a joke. That's sure what it sounded like to me, but he didn't actually say the words. And maybe I'm just inserting my questionable morality into this situation, since I think that a woman who loses a purse that she knows has $43K in it probably deserves to lose it.
