Ask Amy: Found money raises privacy questions
Dear Amy: I was doing a deep clean in our bedroom, dusting and going through clothes to donate, vacuuming, etc.
My husband's bureau is stacked high with papers and much more.
I decided to move and remove everything on top to dust.
In a box, three envelopes with large sums of money fell out.
I put the envelopes back in the box and finished dusting.
He was visibly furious when he came home: "Why did you touch my stuff, where is it…?!”
He stomped off downstairs.
I didn't mention the money that night.
The next morning before work, he removed the money. I know this because I started moving his belongings and the box was empty.
He called later in the day and I mentioned, “Hey, did you hit the lottery?”
