Why these things never happen to me?

All I've ever found in the NY garbage that was valuable is a copy of a book by Simon Schama. And here is this woman who sees a painting stuck in the garbage and it turns out to be a stolen Rufino Tamayo from 1970 that is worth about a million dollars or more. It's unbelievable.
She has returned it and gotten a finders fee of $15,000. The painting is going up for auction at Sotheby's. It is beautiful.
