If the desk he'd bought from someone else had fit through the door, Rabbi Noah Muroff wouldn't have had to take it apart. And if he hadn't taken it apart, he probably wouldn't have found a shopping bag inside containing $98,000.
He called up the person who sold him the desk and found out it was her inheritance; she'd forgotten what she did with it. So the money was headed back to its original owner.
We saw this as a good, "what would you do?" moment. Let's say you found a large amount of money in something you'd just bought from someone - could be in a baseball glove, a piece of art, a pair of shoes - what comes next?
