I found 300k in cash... I immediately called the seller and told them I found 100k
Was that supposed to be a joke?

I like where this thread is going.

I bought a dresser on Craigslist from an estate sale.  I found 300k in cash in a hidden compartment. I immediately called the seller and told them I found 100k that was their mothers.
What a laugh to start the week!

iirc with regards to that story that you are referring to, I think after the fact Reb Shmuel kamenetsky told him to be מפרסם it so he should make a kiddush hashem and otherwise it wasn't so simple that he returned it

No, I'm pretty sure he asked first.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Are you trying to undo that?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I was in H&M the other day returning a item that costed me about $40. The cashier who did the return was obviously new and mistakenly refunded me the original price of $70. Instead of walking away with the extra funds on my cc, i pointed out his mistake.

He was very grateful and surprised.

Was just thinking that this would be a great thread to start and found this in a search.

Hopefully bringing this up to 2019 will inspire people to post their own Kiddush Hashem stories.

Nothing major, but even just holding a door for someone, or letting someone with a couple items go before you when you have a full cart is a small kiddush Hashem.
