Do Not Tick Off Granny

An elderly Austrian Grandmother spent her final days shredding over a million dollars to keep her heirs from inheriting the money. I guess they shouldn't have put her in a nursing home. Go Granny!

The bank is talking about snatching defeat from the jaws of Granny's victory by possibly replacing the destroyed money.

All the inheritors need do is glue it all back together. Or, at least, enough to show the serial nbrs.

Now, if it was OUR shredder, you know, the one that makes confetti.

In the future, if anyone wants to spite their heirs by getting rid of a million dollars, we here at WU will gladly take the money.

Alex, you are a genius! We are all about public service here at WU!

€1 = $1.08686 today. Now, Greek Lyra haven't been around for a long, long, long time so --- ah, gold's down right now, right?

@Expat.. Patty said that would get a response. I guess she will read it when she wakes up again. Women sleep too much and don't work enough to earn us €'s.

There's a pretty high incidence of cognitive impairment in people that age in long-term care facilities, so it is quite likely that the lady wasn't playing with a full deck. I've avoided that problem by not earning enough money that my kids will have anything to fight over. And there will be nothing to shred.

She might have been slier than anyone thinks -- she could have slipped half the cash to her favorite and then mixed in scrap paper when she was shredding the rest. The bank will replace it all, so she gave him/her a tidy bonus without cheating anyone else out of their share. ("Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance." -- David Mamet)
