Hi everyone, op here, the reason I had wrappers in my pocket was because I was handing out candy for Halloween at my friends house and cleaned up wrappers from eaten candy, forgetting that I had money in my pocket because I got it before I went home to put it in my wallet. While I was throwing it away I just grabbed the war of junk out of my pocket and I was having a conversation with my friend so I didn't notice the money in there while shoving it in the trash. I can't go back to my friends house because he lives very far away, I have texted and called him to ask if he can at least look for it for me and he has not replied. Happy Halloween!

$20 is worth digging through the trash to get back.

50, I disagree. If I left money at one of my friend's houses, most or all of them would at least look for it and try to get it back to me. I'd say if your friends are really so greedy that they wouldn't return your money, they're not friends worth keeping.

Wow op that sucks. Next time you should probably check. Also doesn't money feel different than plastic candy wrappers?

To me it does. But also, every time I'm emptying my pockets, I check to see if everything is just trash only.

It could have been the paper candy wrappers, like salt water taffy, or double bubble.

Remember: hold your trash with one hand and cash in another. That's how I avoid that. FYL OP

$20 is worth digging through the trash to get back.

Especially if it's the only money you have.

I'm wondering if op didn't realize they threw out the $20 until they were already at another location.

Not if it's a public trash can, where a lot of times you can't really dig through it in the first place.

I feel sorry for you but you kind of deserved this one.

Yikes. Unlucky. Don't really know what to say to that except FYL. Maybe double check next time?

Funny how in essence, they are all worthless papers. Money only has value because we will it.

Google "Fiat Money." That's basically what you're describing.

each "bank note" represents that amount of gold.

Yeah, well you cant make a car payment with trash.

#25, not since the 70s. Gold became too restrictive in larger economies. That's what 'fiat' money is.

And even gold has only the value we give it. It's inherently a worthless metal. There's your philosophical thought of the day :)

A life lesson, next time you'll no better, by the way sorry!

And that's when you go back to that trash can and start diggin, as long as you remembered/noticed at a decent time.

$20 is $20 meaning it's worth digging through garbage for because allot of people would do allot worse for it.

I hope you get it back.
