A Utah family’s hard earned savings have been lost after their toddler placed $1000 worth of notes through an electronic shredder.
Ben and Jackee Belnap had taken the cash out to pay for their season tickets for their local college football team, but their young son had other ideas, shares Yahoo news.
“As devastated and as sick as we were, this was one of those moments where you just have to laugh,” Ms Belnap told US television station KRON4.
The mother revealed her son regularly joins in when they shred their mail.
After stumbling over a white envelope with the cash inside he placed it through the shredder.
“Most people they say, ‘Oh, a kid drew crayon on the wall’ or something. I’ve never heard of a kid shredding a grand,” Leo’s father said of the money they had been saving for a year.
Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel for the couple with the US Department of Treasury confirming they may be eligible to get all their money back. BUT it could take years.
