JERUSALEM (AFP) – – A stash of cash landed in the trash when a woman in Israel dumped her mother’s mattress not knowing it was stuffed with the equivalent of about one million dollars.
Israeli media reported that the 40-year-old woman showed up at a garbage dump in a panic on Tuesday, looking for the valuable bedding.
She had bought a new mattress for her mother and, wanting the gift to be a surprise, threw away the old one. She then found out the decades-old mattress contained her mother’s life savings.
Workers are helping her search the garbage, but have found no sign of the cash so far.
Oh gosh! I can feel the ‘dui-ness’.
This tells us wat seems invaluable to u may be priceless to the others. But if u must dispose, pls check with the owner. Or should u give any surprise, pls be smart.
I had wanted to change my parents’ decades-old mattress since last yr. But I strongly believed that they do not have one million dollars stuffed inside ^___^
