I never really thought that somebody would actually break into my household, but I still hid my backup supply of cash in a rather foolish place.
I put my money in a plastic bag and hid it inside of the window A/C unit.
Then when I came home one day and went to turn on my cooling machine, I freaked out when the window A/C unit was missing! I called the police of course and they were wondering why I was making a big deal about this window A/C unit that was stolen from my home. They said I could easily just get another window A/C unit, and they weren’t sure if I would ever find it because window A/C units are stolen all of the time. I told them they didn’t understand, and then I told them that I stowed away all of my savings in that window A/C unit. The cops looked at me and one of them tried to hold back his laughter. Both the cops ended up laughing at me because they said that was the dumbest place to ever hide your savings. They said I could have kept my savings in a bank like normal people, or I could have purchased a safe that actually was difficult to steal from. When they asked me how much money I had in there, I felt even more foolish when I told them it was $5,000. They promised me they would try to figure out where my window A/C unit went to, but they admitted that the window A/C unit was probably long gone by now. I guess I’ll never try to hide anything in my window A/C unit ever again after this horrible experience.
