Transcript for Lost Money at Diner Taken by Patron
Did you ever have one of those days? No, ugh. Reporter: That keeps getting worse? Lady, let's go. Reporter: We're at the saddle brook diner in saddle brook, new Jersey. Vince is having such a bad day he makes everyone's life miserable. Did you lose the formula for hot water? Can I order here or what? I don't have all day! Reporter: By becoming the world's biggest jerk. Is it me? Reporter: When he stomps off -- I'm leaving. Reporter: Traci spots something unieshl. What? Reporter: Something Vince accidentally leaves behind. Wow, I can't believe it. Reporter: A bank envelope stuffed with $100 bills. Now, the question is will people allow Traci to keep the money just because the guy who lost it is a total jerk? What would you do if you saw something like this -- A hot decaf tea! That's a cup with hot water and a tea bag that says decaf on it. All right? I mean, unbelievable. Reporter: As Vince storms out, watch as this man applauds. Can't get water right. Did he leave? Reporter: It seems Vince forgot something. It must be Traci's lucky day. I'm going to keep this. He's a jerk. Don't say anything, okay? Reporter: But the guy who clapped for Vince's exit -- now enters as Vince's protector. The woman found money on the seat there. She did? It was? Yeah, I'm sure he'll be back. Reporter: And moments later, he is. You see an envelope with money in it, anybody, like a bank envelope? It had about $1,000 in it. I'll give you a reward if you have it. Reporter: Nobody's saying anything, huh? They are quiet. Reporter: It seems like everybody's keeping Traci's secret. Thanks for not saying anything. He's a total jerk. Yeah, he deserves it. Yeah, do you guys want $100? Nah, no. Reporter: I'm John Quinones with the show "What would you do?" What did you think of the guy? I thought he was an -- not a nice person. Reporter: Loud and obnoxious. Everything you don't want in a human being. Reporter: He comes back and you didn't tell him anything. He doesn't deserve it. Reporter: He got what he deserves. Yes, exactly. We roll again. What is that? Cup of soup. A cup of soup? Reporter: Keep your eyes on this guy. I'm taking my business somewhere else. You should do anything else than this. Reporter: His reaction to Traci finding the money will change faster than the diner's daily special. He's gone, right? That's not right. Oh, no, no, no. Reporter: At first he wants Traci to give the money back but wait -- $100 to keep silent. That's the deal. Traci goes back to her table, counts the lost loot, then offers even more cash to keep him quiet. Now, he'll take $300, but when Vince returns -- I was sitting right there. Did you guys see an envelope with money? Yeah, she has it right there. Reporter: What? Just like that he turns Traci in. In the black? November. This fella is pointing at you. This gentleman pointed at you. No, I don't have it. Are you sure you saw it because I'm gonna call the cops. I'm not sure. I can't say anything. You said you saw it, but now you didn't. Are you sure or not? I'm not sure what I saw. Someone wants to do the right thing -- Reporter: But Traci wants answers. Why did you rat me out? I told him I knew nothing. Reporter: Does he still want the money? Here. How much do you want? Whatever you think is fair. Reporter: Yes, he does! How much you want? I guess you can keep it all. I'll give you money. Nah, that's all right. Reporter: No, he doesn't! Now we want answers. What's he really thinking? How are you guys doing? Right away, the first thing I said was, uh, "We should find the guy and give him his money back." It would've been the right thing to do. Reporter: But then she asked you "You want some of the money?" And you said yes at first. I did say yes, yeah, you know? Who's gonna say no to free money, you know? What can I say. Reporter: But then you thought about it -- Then I thought about it, yeah. Doing the right thing, you know would've not been taking it which I didn't take it. Reporter: We roll again and this customer takes a different approach. It's borderline ridiculous here. Reporter: He's a ticking time bomb. You don't know how to serve tables. There noise reason to make a public spec Tagle. I'll take my business elsewhere. You don't know how to wait tables. Reporter: When Traci discovers the stack of $100 bills -- He left a pile of cash, right? Yeah. You're going to give him his money back? Yeah. It's the right thing to do. Reporter: He takes action, to return the money. We're going to go get him. And now the bomb goes off. He doesn't even see me or the camera crew. I know you might be having a bad day. Don't ever, ever do that to a young lady again who is trying to work her butt off. Reporter: He's so worked up he still doesn't notice me. Do you that again I'll throw out of the place. Didn't do that, I'm an honest man. I hope you have a great day. Don't ever do it again. Never again. Reporter: Sir, this is part of the show "What would you do?" It's not right to treat people that way. Reporter: Don't keep the money. Don't keep what's not yours? Why should you? Did I earn it? Man works hard every day. It's like $1,000. We start rolling again. They quickly form a posse to force Traci to come clean. She's got it! Who? That one with the black hair. She's got it? Without a doubt. You have my money? I don't know what you're talking about. This gentleman says you have it. They saw it. No doubt. You saw it? Yep. I'm going to call the cops. Reporter: Vince leaves and the customers let loose.
