$293 Million: Nearly The Most Expensive Nap Ever
We’ve all done it: leaned on a computer keyboard while daydreaming and typed mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Leaning on a key while night-dreaming is another matter, and it almost cost a German bank 222,222,222 euros, or about $293 million.
The error was blamed on a bank clerk who was assigned to transfer the relatively small sum of 62 euros and 40 cents, or just over $80, to the account of a retiree.
Since there was apparently no espresso in the bank’s employee café, the tired soul “fell asleep for an instant, while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard,” according to statements made in the Hessen labor court.
