Unless of course, the intention is definitely predatory and overly friendly which I surmise it actually is.
This isn't about what 'to do'.
If I were in his shoes, I would return the $10 because I wouldn't need to go outta my way to do a good deed anyways. I'm comfortable enough with myself to not need an excuse to talk to her.
That wasn't the question though. The question was what kind of responses would I expect to get if I used such a crap cliche line that I'd never even think of with the right tone and attitude.

As far as my knowledge goes, she didn't actually 'drop' it in the context of the word. She left it behind after taking it out to do whatever it is she was supposed to be doing with the money (I'm guessing it was her change from splitting the grocery bill), and nobody noticed until later.
