A man almost threw his fortune when he accidentally thrown his pillow to the garbage but he forgot that it contained $30,000.
A Chinese man identified as Shang preferred stuffing his hard earned money inside his pillow rather than keeping it in a bank.
He thought it was a sneaky place to safeguard his cash against theft.
His valuable stuff might not have been stolen but still lost his money anyway because he tossed his old pillow in the garbage.
The garbage collector arrived and picked up the trash without any idea that something precious is about to be thrown away.
Later that day, the Chinese man realized that something is missing and remembered that his $30,000 was inside the pillow. With so much frustration, Shang immediately contacted the Garbage Collection Base and pleaded to help him dig the pillow.
It seems like there was a slim hope of finding the pillow as Deputy Manager Tan Bojun of Hulin Garbage Base informed Shang that out of the three garbage containers, two were already shipped away. Only one truck was remaining at the dock.
But there are still people with good hearts and always ready to help. Five workers were already off duty but volunteered to come back to conduct a “treasure hunting.”
After rummaging through 15 tons of garbage, the precious pillow was found and the pieces of $30,000 were still crisp and intact inside.
Mr. Shang offered a reward to the staff but refused to accept saying that it was part of their job.
It was almost the worst epic fail Mr. Shang has ever done in his life but sometimes there are stupid things that we can’t prevent from happening.
