A Florida woman who left 10 $100 bills in an envelope for her husband to deposit when he returned home quickly learned that it was a bad idea when her husband realized the bills were missing. It turns out that the family’s dog Tuity decided to snack on the bills and envelop, quite literally devouring $1000.
Speaking about the missing money the husband told the St. Augustine Record:
“I thought somebody broke in originally.”
Christy Lawrenson added:
“She ate the bill, the envelope … everything.”
After some thought the couple gave Tuity just enough peroxide to puke up the money and then pieced together the bills.
It turns out that even after chomping on the benjamins nine of the bills were still good enough to be returned for new tender at their local bank branch, although one of the $100 notes was missing an important section and could not be returned.
In a last ditch effort to get back their final $100 bill the couple has sent the money to the US Treasury with an note explaining exactly what happened to the tender and they are currently awaiting a response from the government.
Their note to the Treasury might possibly be the first “my dog ate my homework” equivalent that the agency has received.
