2-Year-Old Kid Got Rid Of His Parents’ $1,060. However, The Family Only Benefited From It!
Quite an interesting and funny story has recently hit Twitter. An American football fan and his young wife had been saving money for months to attend their favorite football team’s match.

When they were finally ready to buy tickets, the cherished amount seemed to have simply disappeared from the envelope. The parents of a two-year-old boy puzzled over where the savings could have gone.
At first, none of them thought that the reason for the missing money was their toddler. Then someone guessed to look at the paper shredder standing in the room. And guess what? They found the entire amount of money shredded into hundreds of pieces.

Over a thousand dollars was lying in the shredder, chopped into fine strips.
The shocked dad shared this expensive incident of sliced dollar stripes on Twitter. It isn’t surprising that in the shortest time his publication became viral and gathered a huge number of comments.
So me and my wife had been saving up to pay for our @Utah_Football tickets in cash. We pulled our money out yesterday to pay my mom for the season… Well we couldn’t find the envelope until my wife checked the shredder. Yup. 2 year old shredded $1,060. pic.twitter.com/93R9BWAVDE

Social network users were making much fun of the poor parents and their mischievous son. Some even suggested that this was their child’s way of fighting the impending inflation.
Apart from that, many were surprised by the boy’s appearance, since he looked much older than his age. Apparently, the whole debate was about his height and the presence of a two-wheeled bicycle in the photo, which even four-year-old children can hardly master. People had doubts that the kid had just turned 2.

Nevertheless, while the mother and father of the naughty boy shared their impressions of what had happened, the representatives of the football team found out about this curious case and offered to give the family free tickets for the match:

Also, the local treasury agreed to reimburse part of the money destroyed. It turns out that the family only benefited from the boy’s shenanigans and also became famous thanks to the little incident. The boy sure knows how to help his parents attract attention!
