A woman buys her mother a new mattress but doesn't think to check the old one for hidden cash before tossing it out.
An Israeli woman who bought her elderly mother a new mattress threw out the old one unaware that it had $1 million hidden inside it.
Israeli newspapers reported today that the woman was left scrabbling through landfill sites in an, as yet, fruitless search for the mattress which contained her mother's life savings.
The woman, identified only as Anat, a resident of Tel Aviv, told Army Radio that she bought the mattress on Monday as a surprise for her mother and got rid of the other one without telling her.
They're still looking for the mattress... good luck! I bet some college kid picked it up off the curb.
