Minnesota Waitress Got A $12,000 Tip, Turns It In, Fights For It Back / by

I thought this story was interesting. So, Stacy Knutaon, a waitress from Minnesota, is now $12,000 richer after putting up a fight with her local police department over a large tip that she received while working at her restaurant. Five kids, thousands of dollars in medical bills and little work has left her to wish and hope for a prayer.

The struggling citizen was praying for a miracle of money because her husband and herself has been struggling financially. Her prayers were answered after a customer left a to go box with a hefty $12,000 inside of it and told Knutaon to keep it. But being the FOOL that she is, she called the police to turn the money in only to end up fighting for it back. Check out the article and video below.

A waitress in Minnesota will keep her $12,000 tip after police confiscated the cash, according to her attorney Craig Richie.

 “The county attorney’s office and the Moorhead Police Department have agreed to give her the entire $12,000,” said Richie.

Stacy Knutson says she got the money after a customer left a box at her table at the Fryn’ Pan Restaurant in Moorhead. She followed the customer to her car to return the box but the woman told her to keep it. Knutson found bundled rolls of cash inside the box.

She said even though she has five children and could use the money, she decided to call police.
“They’re strapped financially,” said Richie.

Officers told the woman to wait 90 days in case someone claimed the money. Richie says after three months, police told Knutson the cash was being held as drug money.

“They initially said they were going to give it to her,” said Richie. “Then they said, ‘Oh, well, no we had the drug dogs sniff it and we think there’s drugs on it and we are going to keep it.’”
Richie says police offered her a $1,000 reward, but she never received it. She then filed a lawsuit in Clay County District Court.

“We argued that most money that you carry in your pocket has drug residue on it,” said Richie. “She could’ve kept the money and nobody would’ve known. But she said, ‘No, I’m going to do the right thing.’ So she called police and now integrity has now prevailed.”

So, I'm going to point out ALL of the things that are wrong with this story. Well, no. I'll just point out what I WOULDN'T have done. So, first off, If I was a waiter, I would do my job. That job is to clean the tables, clear them of dishes and toss the trash. If a customer leaves a to go box on the table, I would assume that it's trash.

So I would have picked up the box and felt the weight and would have thought to myself "geeee, we don't make or sell food this heavy." I would have then opened the box, saw the money, went to grab my personal belongings and told my boss that I had a family emergency to attend to. I would not have called the damn police!! What the hell was she thinking?

 So this lady does the boo boo the fool and called the police and they take at $12,000 worth of her little money. All of it and tells her to wait 90 days. Baby bye! She waited like boo boo the fool and called back, then they told her that they we're keeping it and only offered her $1,000 reward.

 So she did what a normal person would do (finally), she fought for her money. She hired a lawyer and everything and sure enough the money is now hers. But I mean, why go through all of that? Forget trying to be a good Samaritan lady, someone left yo ass $12,000. Why would you call the police? Just so damn dumb! I  would have walked out that restaurant so damn fast with a big as smile on my face.

It's like you hired a lawyer and all, that's money out of your pocket. She won't even see the full $12,000. I'll tell you....let me run into a lump sum of cash. I'm shutting down this blog and my ass will be OUT! Naaa, I'm playing.
