Man transfers fortune while asleep at keyboard (from our “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” file)

While a daytime nap may refresh your energy and spirits, be sure not to doze off on your keyboard.

According to a report from Agence France Presse, a German bank employee briefly fell asleep while entering a funds transfer on his computer keyboard. Unfortunately, instead of transferring 62.4 euros, his sleepy finger stuck the number 2 key in position, resulting in an actual transfer of 222,222,222.22 euros.

The huge transfer was later caught and corrected by the bank, but not until after the bank employee’s colleague failed to catch the mistake when verifying the order. The colleague was terminated for the oversight, but a Hessen labor court later order that the colleague be reinstated in his job.
