At least you honest enough.

I would like to say I would do the same, but when faced with that situation I can't say what I would or wouldn't do.

I wouldn't have ended the session for them. I wouldn't have taken any money, but I'm not wasting my time cleaning up after someone else either. Unless I need the machine myself, they can just hope the next guy by is honest too.

I hit yes, just to see, and sure enough, somebody had not waited to finish out their transaction and it was asking me if I'd like another transaction.

Here I dutifully hit no, and ended the session. Three times this has happened. They're begging me to take their money. It's like they want me to have it.

"Please, Chris, take the money. There are no cameras, and nobody's watching. It's yours now, and whatever executive it is will surely make it back this week."

If this keeps up, how can I continue to resist. A fresh wad of 20's would come in mighty handy with the bills and birthdays coming up, but my morals won't let me take it. And what happens if somebody else, less honest, takes this person's money? I'm not sure how to find out who is doing this over and over again. What a strange situation.

Let me just say this: you're a much better human being than I am, I'd take it in a heartbeat!

Don't believe everything you think

I can resist anything but temptation

The old ATM's in our building did. These do not. The building is relatively secure, and it's a busy area, so I guess they felt alright going without. Cameras are just about everywhere else though.

I should hear back from security and the facilities staff on Monday. Hopefully they'll get it taken care of.

GG .

You did the right thing, notifying security and not taking any money.

You'll be rewarded for it later on down the line. Or at least I think you will.... I believe in that kind of thing....
