A toddler found $1000 Cash and shredded it to bits. How did it happen?
A Utah couple is out a thousand bucks thanks to a curious toddler and a paper shredder.
Ben and Jackee Belnap had been saving up the money to pay back Ben’s parents for a gift of football tickets. But over the weekend, the envelope full of cash disappeared. Eventually, they figured out their 2-year-old son had put the envelope through the shredder.
Jackee says her son helps her shred junk mail and other papers and must have put the envelope through when they weren’t looking.
The Belnaps sent the shreds to a federal office that deals with ripped money and hope to get it back in a year or two. Meanwhile, their son is no longer allowed to use the shredder.
So me and my wife had been saving up to pay for our @Utah_Football tickets in cash. We pulled our money out yesterday to pay my mom for the season... Well we couldn’t find the envelope until my wife checked the shredder. Yup. 2 year old shredded $1,060. pic.twitter.com/93R9BWAVDE— BB (@Benbelnap) October 2, 2018
What’s the most expensive accident your toddler caused? Would you keep a shredder in the house with a two-year-old?
