Few have been as lucky as those who were driving on Atlanta's Interstate 285 Tuesday night, when money rained down from the heavens- or at least the truck up ahead.
One driver told WSB Radio: 'I saw a bunch of paper floating around in the road and everybody pulling over on the shoulder, and as I got closer I noticed it was all just cash'. The vehicle dropped between $100,000 and $175,000 onto the highway and authorities quickly responded to a report of "money flying all over the road", according to WXIA.
"The armored vehicle crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285", Dunwoody Police said in a statement. Investigators will be trying to locate them from their tag numbers seen in the video.
Though the money was all over the road, taking the cash is still a crime, and several people have returned the money they found to the police.
"I could have sworn the law was "finders keepers" " one woman wrote in response. "Everybody started pulling over and it was insane".

Rafael Nadal laments another missed opportunity to win Wimbledon
There was barely a cigarette paper between the two gladiators in a high-quality opening set crackling with tension. The 40th chapter of their rivalry, the third-most prolific in the professional era, was compelling enough though.
By the time police arrived at the scene, many had driven off with the cash they had collected. Anyone who willingly returns money to the police will not be charged.
Judging from footage taken at the scene, it seems most people decided the right thing to do was to get out of their cars and make hay while the sun shined, in some kind of freakish motorway-based version of The Crystal Maze.
Lewis said the money had been weighing on his heart and when he learned it was considered theft, he turned it over to police.
"We understand anyone in that position would be tempted, but we want people to do the right thing and bring the money back, so they don't have to worry about police knocking on their door", said Parsons.
Speaking to CNN, he said: "It took me a minute to realise it wasn't leaves".
