I found a wallet in the pub...

#1
...yep, there it was staring up at me in the gents.
No, not my todger, the wallet. Stuffed with at least £150 in notes.

Good Samaritan that I am, I hand the wallet to the barman.

Should I have pocketed the notes, then handed it in?
Or did I do the right thing and I shall receive my reward in heaven?

You do realise the barman is going to pocket the cash and blame it on you, right?

If you had handed it into a police station then the owner would have got the full contents back. Barmen are not known for their diligence to the straight and narrow.

I found a wallet in a London pub and handed it in. Ihe bar staff were very surprised that I did so.

Little Japanese chap reclaimed it five mins later and didn't even offer to buy me a drink even though the girl behind pointed me out to him.

It was mine, returned without cash. Please mail me the 150 quid to cover your negligence. Thanks.

A mate of mine (w-o-t-w) left his mobile in a Croydon pub, as I was the last person he called one of the bar staff rang me so I then had to trapse round my mates drinking spots to find him so he could go and get it. Needless to say I was surprised at the honesty of the bar staff.

Thats not typical of the Japanese. Out here if you lose a wallet the person who finds it will usually make an effort to track down the owner. Traditionally the owner of the wallet gives 10% of whatever cash is in the wallet as a reward.
There is very little theft here either, in most places it is perfectly safe to leave a wallet and mobile phone on the table/bar whilst you go to the toilet and it will still be there when you get back.

Just another reason why I prefer it here to London

put the boot on the other foot - YOU get your wallet returned with the money you need to buy food and heat your house?
Morally you are beyond reproach.
on the other hand, you are a twat.

Ref: barman's potential lack of morality...how long does it take to write out a list of contents and then get a signature on receipt? A lot longer than trousering £150...

You did the right thing. Well done and ignore all of those who say they would and you should have copped the lot. In these situations I apply a simple test, I ask myself "What would baby Jesus have done?" Then after throwing up a pint of breast milk and sh1tting myself I hand the wallet in.

I was sitting in a bar once when a biker dude sat down beside me, he was pished as fcuk. About an hour later the barman wouldn't serve him anymore so he reached over and put a steely fist around my glass and scooped it up. Discretion (chickeness) said I should leave him alone and not worry about it.

I left not long after him and just as I was getting to the exit I spotted the smelly bikers wallet on the floor which I deftly pocketed. I scored over 1,000 sobs.

Heaven waits for no man, specially me.
