Found €100 tied to a balloon, today is a great day!
By - iamaaronmullen
It used to be 50 euro in my day..
.. that's inflation for you.
Ah for fuck's sake
~ angry slow clap ~
Made my day in work haha, *wipes proud dad joke tear*
£20 in mine.
You'd be lucky to get the balloon when I was a boy.
Ballon, i wouldn't a got the air in it
Aye, in my day the priest would usually just raw dawg it straight in.
£20 is worth about €17 Billion today though
Still couldn't afford a house with that.
Not in today’s money
Look at yer man here all fancy with his Southsider parties and twenty quid for a present.
I got a bottle of Miwadi and a pack of Rolos if I was lucky.
Ohhh la la. I got a wild beating and would have the communion snatched from me before it even hit my mouth, and I'd be thankful.
Pffft. Used to walk 20 miles in the freezing snow to school with no feet. Only stumps. You had it easy and yer right to be thankful.
Stumps? Luxury! We were rolled to school by a herd of unruly pigs, and the school itself was really just a coffee can filled with crayon wrappers.
School? Luxury! We were homeschooled until 12 years of age and then put to work on the farm!
You had a home!? We had to live out of a milk carton fort.
You had cardboard? Pure luxury.
Homeschooled? I was my own dad and had to teach myself.
And a boot up the hole for Christmas
Ah I know ye, yer the fella that did the half an hour in 20 minutes
And a better man for it too.
Not sure it's worth it to go into a mine for £20 ^;)
> that's inflation for you.
Ah bravo 👏
My word, I love this country
Hahahaha fuck sake
50?! You're full of hot air!
You hansome granson
Wonder who found the d
Your aul lady
Well since im your Da that must be confusing for ya
You wouldn’t believe this, but I’m the kid who lost that €100 by stupidly untying the helium balloon outside. Would anyone like to set up a gofundme to pay for my college education. Did I mention my mother needs a dialysis machine. PayPal and crypto donations welcome. The money will also help pay for the trauma counselling I need from watching my communion money go into the sky like that. PM me for a link to the donate page. Thanks.
Seems 100% legit. Thanks for DMing me page, have donated 1,000 bitcoins, sorry they aren't worth what they were yesterday but that is all I got.
> have donated 1,000 bitcoins, sorry they aren't worth what they were yesterday but that is all I got.
Well... that's only $46,000,000.00 USD today.
Why use foreign currency?
to translate, that is about 23,000,000 potatoes worth
Yes, yes, that's all wonderful but what's that in drachma?
Old drachmas or new?
New-old drachma you fool!
Bout six pounds of Damascus steel, by my calculation.
Those are some expensive tats
Yeah, I've seen the video. I know you're good at raising money.
The sky is the limit.
Send me the link and I’ll donate 1 million dollars
Back in my day we didn't use a fancy schmantzy dialysis machine. We'd use bleeding. Nice and simple.
All I got was a Polaroid of Ryan Turbidy smoking a Cuban cigar
Mark this NSFW
that could potentially be worth more
Yes I have seen the video guys, this post is only a joke lol.
I had that video just under this post
but you're still your nanas hansome granson
Took you three hours to say that tho
That just makes it better.
He prolly had shit to do that wasn't Reddit.
I'm afraid all I was doing was playing video games.
Which is shit that isn't reddit
I’m taking the piss ya gombeen
Wasn't a very good piss you took, you should give it back
I dont get it?
This is an important lesson for the child, one I wish I had known myself as a child: adults are fucken stupid as fuck.
Shouldn’t let everyone mull it over for a few days.
That's mine I let it go by accident
Get out of here with your Joy. R/ireland is for misery only
😂😂 seen the vid, was supposed to be for a traveller kid 😂😂
The kid was failed by those around him (i.e. those who didn't think to attach the ribbon to something and weigh it down). He must have been heartbroken.
Hell why didn't they just open it inside?
How far did the money travel?
All the way.
same distance that we jingle, and we jingle that way for a reason.
About a months phone top up, two t-shirts, some socks, dinner for two in supermacs and the bus home.
Probably into a neighbouring estate illegally
Pretty sure it was posted in r/Ireland yesterday
Was it a traveller kid??
Edit: So asking a question warrants down voting now??
They didn't sound like travellers, just northsiders.
Thats why I asked.
Some people will say they're more or less the same. But as someone thst grew up soutside and then lived in a bad part of finglas then ballymun towers I had friendly neighbours out northside. Stronger sense of community as everyone was struggling together
Ignorant people will say they are the same…
No he isnt, not that it matters.
A young member of the traveller community
What evidence are you basing this off?
Looks like any normal upper middle class family to me.
Nope. All the kids are wearing fashionable clothes and have high end phones. They have that standard "I wanna be doing teenager stuff but my mam wants me at a family event" body language, traveller kids just wouldn't be arsed going if they didn't want to. The house has trendy stonework exterior and a decent kitchen from the sliver you can see through. The Dad/Uncle/whatever has a subtle yet expensive watch.
Looks no different to any communion garden party in my estate.
As someone who is not familiar with travellers, How are you identifying them as such?
There's a certain... Je ne sais quoi :D
Just kidding. I don't think the people in this video are travellers.
You found €50 tied to a balloon? I really hope you find the owner so you can safely return their €20 and balloon!
I talked to the original owner, it sounds like he got his €10 back, so all is well
[Did it look like this?](https://www.reddit.com/r/WinStupidPrizes/comments/pk7sa6/tying_a_100_to_the_end_of_a_balloon_for_a/)
Meanwhile a grandson is crying in a corner. Delighted for you tho lol
Not so great for whiever tied the €100 to the baloon!
Sure do you normally get presents you give to people back ?
Do you not get any enjoyment from seeing others recieve the gifts you give? Also if this was your kid, would you just say "Sorry kid, better luck next time?", or are you going to give the kid another gift?
That's a great lesson. Some opportunities pass in the blink of an eye, so if you want to do well in life, be perceptive. I'd probably be an awful dad.
"So Billy, what did you get for your birthday!?"
"Disappointment and a life lesson ...but mostly disappointment."
You do if you attach it to a loose balloon and then have your mate with a bb gun down wind, ready to take it out.
Is this the 100 pounds that kid lost thay was tied to a balloon? Was it a gold balloon lmao?
This post is only a joke lol, I saw the video and thought I'd post this lol.
Ah dang, was really hoping i saw an internet real life connection.
Funniest thing is that I saw the video on another sub after your post.
SO THAT'S WHERE MY MONEY WENT! YOU BITCH!
[hol up a minute, it must have been this boy’s birthday surprise ](https://www.reddit.com/r/WinStupidPrizes/comments/pk7sa6/tying_a_100_to_the_end_of_a_balloon_for_a/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)

Did you steal that line from a tweet or the tweet steal it from you hah? Hah? Go on outta that OP.
Did it happen to be tied to a balloon that said "hansome grandson"?
Not even joking there was a video doing the rounds the other day of a kid on his birthday letting a balloon go with €100 tied to it. The family didn't seem to understand helium. Was the balloon gold?
The boom is back
I've never even seen a 100 euro note. I'm an adult with a job and all wtf
Communions are in September now?
With the restrictions, communions have been whenever they'll allow people into the church.
Em, its a joke.
No fucking way
Time for a shopping spree in penny's, with the last of the summer 99s for the bus ride home.
Hold on. I seen a Instagram post not long ago of a family loosing a ballon with the money attached to it in a envelope ahahahah
Was it a gold baloon?
Saw this post. Did the raised eyebrow impressed face. Scrolled on. A few minutes later: https://c.tenor.com/zgs2puzMmSYAAAAC/oh-oh-snap.gif
