Israeli woman trashes $1m mattress

https://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8092942.stm


Israel woman 'bins $1m mattress'
A Tel Aviv woman has been searching through Israeli rubbish dumps after she said she accidentally threw away a mattress containing $1m (700,000).

The woman, identified only as Anat, had bought a new mattress for her mother as a surprise and threw away the old one, Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported.

But when the older woman returned home she "almost fainted", as she had hidden her entire life savings inside.

In a related story, local Tel Aviv trashman, Yitzhak Borba, is now rolling on dueces.

When I think of a "deuce", I think of a "#2" (aka poopy). So rolling in deuces isn't something that appeals to me so much. Just sayin'.

Er.....No. No I don't. I don't watch NASCAR, UFC or bowling either. (And I'm "ok" with that)

"In their mattress" in this case it seems.

Scrooge McDuck swam in a pool of coins, so you have the equivalent of his waterbed.

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon
