article imageDaughter wastes her mother's $1 million by tossing it in trash

By Stephanie Dearing     Jun 11, 2009 in World
A woman thought she was doing something good for her mother by replacing the old mattress. She did it as a surprise, and the old mattress was hauled to the dump. And then she remembered that her mom had filled the old mattress with a million bucks!
We've all been advised not to keep our money under our mattress, in case of fire or some other catastrophe. No one warned people to beware of well-intentioned relatives! A woman only identified by the name of Anat in Tel Aviv claims she knew about her mother's money tucked in that mattress, but had a major 'brain fart' one day and accidentally replaced the mattress with a new one -- throwing away all that money.
According to reports, Anat realized her error rather quickly and has since been searching local landfill sites around Tel Aviv since June 10th, without any luck so far. One landfill site manager has apparently taken pity on Anat, reported to be helping the woman search for the mattress as well as fending off fortune hunters. The mother apparently had a traumatic experience with a bank in her past, hence her mattress savings plan. The Internet rumour mill has it that Anat took the money.
