BERLIN: An obviously tired German bank employee fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally transformed a minor transfer into a $293-million order, a court heard on Tuesday.
The Hessen labour court heard that the man was supposed to transfer just 62.40 from a bank account belonging to a retiree, but instead fell asleep for an instant while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard, making it a huge 222,222,222.22 order.
Haven’t we all been there?
I heard that the NSA is working on a device that while monitoring you at your computer, if detected that you are sleepy – you will receive a mild taser jolt!
( just kidding…..)
