I can think of a lot of places you might not want to store $26,000 in gold.
For instance, it might not be a good idea to put your gold in a cat litter box. And you might not want to stick your gold inside an old boat. And if you did put your cat litter box filled with gold inside an old boat, you probably wouldn’t want to ask your druggie neighbor to help.
Well, a couple in Florida did a three-fer. They put their $26,000 in retirement gold in a cat litter box and asked their druggie neighbor to help them hide it on their boat.
The next part of the story won’t surprise you. The druggie neighbor apparently stole it.
Today we’re going to have fun at the expense of some poor man in Germany.
On the one hand, you’ll probably feel a little sorry for the guy. But — come on man!
Chalk this up as a lesson in how not to take care of your gold.
