  • Toddler shreds over $1,000 in cash after finding parents' stash

Leo is familiar with the shredder because he helps his mother shred "junk mail and important documents".

A Utah couple was saving thousands of dollars for over a year to pay for university of Utah football season tickets. Originally, the couple had kept the cash locked away in a filing cabinet - but once they had squirreled away $1,060, they placed the cash in an envelope and set it on the counter so they would keep in mind to deliver it to Ben's parents.

First, Belnap cried, she said - just for a minute.

Mischievous turned diabolical when the Belnap's 2-year-old son, Leo, shredded $1000.

Recalling the moment Jackee opened up the shredder, Ben, of Bountiful, Ut., told KSL-TV: 'I'm digging through the trash and she hollers and says, "I found it". "She's holding the shredder and she says, 'I think the money is in here'". Ben Belnap told KSL they contacted the Treasury Department with questions, and were told to send the remains of the money Washington in Ziploc Baggies.

Thankfully a government office that specializes in dealing with mutilated cash gave them their money back.

Following the incident, Ben made a decision to share the comical incident on social media and has been liked more than 1,760 times and retweeted by more than 530 people. We pulled our money out yesterday to pay my mom for the season. They were then shocked to discover the envelope, which was nowhere to be found, had gone through a shredder!

Their two-year-old son helps shred junk mail, and was trying to be helpful.

After Twitter users read the tweet, they offered their sympathies and even shared their own mishaps. Though it would have been a bit harsh on a 2-year-old kid, a couple from Utah seems to have left it a bit too late with their son.

Luckily for the Belnaps, all's well that ends well!
