Dog House Blog, Loads Of Money!

Molly The Wally & Money!
 
It came to our attention that over in Germany a bank clerk accidentally puts £190million into a pensioner’s account after falling asleep on his keyboard. Drats could it not have been my account? Sadly for the pensioner whose account received the hundreds of millions of euros the funds were quickly swept away again. The boss of the bank clerk who made the error was fired for letting the mistake slip through. A court in the state of Hesse, central Germany, heard that the clerk was supposed to transfer just €62.40 (£53) from a bank account belonging to the pensioner. In fact the pensioner received a huge €222,222,222.22 that day. The clerk had nodded off with his finger still on the 2 button of the keyboard. That is one heck of a lot of zees! The bank, which was not named in the ruling, published online, claimed the supervisor had tried to deceive her superiors by failing to properly check transfer payments.  The Hesse Labour court ruled, however, that the plaintiff should have received a warning and not a dismissal and said she should be reinstated in her job. Although it was a 'terrible mistake' there was no evidence she had sought to cause deliberate harm to her employer, and she should be reinstated, the ruling said. Nevermind the employees imagine if the poor boy saw  €222,222,222.22 in his bank account. He could have had a heart attack. Wish we had that problem in our account.

  9. What a silly mistake. Maybe the bank should have a rule about transferring that much money - like it needs to be double checked. I would want that money! Lee and Phod

  10. Hey Molly!
    Wow, what a huge mistake! BOL to sleeping on the job. Gee, I'd think that should get a peep fired no matter what. Paid for sleeping? Now that's a job I want! Too bad we all can't get money accidentally given to us. BOL
    BTW: I'm so very glad you joined my event today and I love your entry pix!

  15. Oh my, easy come, easy go! I once had $1000 mistakenly placed in my account. It didn't take the bank very long to realize the error. Sigh...to bad we can't keep the funds.

    Enjoy your Sunday,

  25. Hi Y'all!

    You didn't say what happened to the fellow who was so tired he fell asleep at work. Scary! Suppose instead of adding money to the man's account they had wiped it out! Ouch!

    Y'all come back now,

  28. When I was in the Navy, I was told that if I was over paid, to keep the money, and put it somewhere it gains interest. If anybody ever comes looking for it, return it, but then I still have the interest.

  30. Uh oh! That is definitely a big mistake. Totally worse than peeing in the house or even food thievery...maybe she just needs a time out in her crate? She sounds like she could have used a nap anyway :)
