Finders Keepers

January 6, 2019 | by

Moishe and Miriam Mallerman were celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired.

Holding hands they walked back to their old school, Talmud Torah. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Moishe had carved "I love you, Miriam."

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Miriam quickly picked it up, but not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money - fifty-thousand dollars!

Moishe said, "We've got to give it back."

Miriam said, "Finders keepers." She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.

The next day, two FBI agents were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on the door. "Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?"

Miriam said, "No."

Moishe said, "She's lying. She hid it up in the attic."

Miriam said, "Don't believe him, he's getting senile."

The agents turn to Moishe and began to question him.

One says: "Tell us the story from the beginning."

Moishe said, "Well, when Miriam and I were walking home from school yesterday..."

The other FBI agent turns to her partner and says, "We're outta here."
