I have an aunt who used to keep her life savings in the couch. Thank goodness a few years ago she decided to open up a bank account and moved the money.
You never know right??? What if there was a fire? Or someone found the stash? It could end really bad.
A 9-year-old Ukrainian boy spent nearly $4,000 on candy in several days, the money coming from his parents' savings hidden in a couch. The dad realized the money was missing and confronted the kid. After an argument, the son admitted taking the money during his autumn school holiday, $3,300 in U.S. cash and about 600 euros ($635), converting it to Ukrainian hryvnas with the help of an adult acquaintance and spending it on candy, which he shared with friends!!
I hope he got some good candy at least. Not this crap that some people pass out on Halloween...
