JERUSALEM: An Israeli man angry with his wife over money matters set fire to three million shekels ($870,000) on the lawn of his affluent suburban home Wednesday, a news website reported.
After reaching the end of his tether in the marital spat, he had opened the family safe, taken out fistsfuls of bank notes, stuffed them in sacks and dragged them outside, said the online edition of Yediot Aharonot.
"In 36 years, I have seen nothing like it," one fireman was quoted as saying after four fire engines hurtled through Rehovot, near Tel Aviv, following reports of someone trying to set fire to his house.
The firemen were confronted by the banknotes smouldering on the lawn.
A police investigation is underway.
Angry husband burns $870,000: That'll teach her. LOL
Ever gone through a Divorce?
This is like every man's dream :)
Now here is a man that needed to donate money to someone D-Back!
A shekel here a shekel there...pretty soon you're talkin' some real money :o)
I wish I had money to burn.
That was a very unsafe way to dispose of that money.
In the future he should just send it to me and I'll see that it is disposed of properly.
Can a home be affluent? I person can be affluent, but a home?
Perhaps he had come to the realization that like the dollar, ...the shekel is also fiat money.
Mine was. Then it got fired and went on unemployment. Then the unemployment ran out and now my home is nothing but a destitute shack. 'Tis a sad, but true, tale.
My Nigerian wife has really annoyed me lately. Consequently, I wish to send $20 million (US) to a total stranger. This will show her that she cannot keep annoying me. Unfortunately, the Nigerian government (of which my brother is president) has certain rules which make it difficult to ship money to th US. However, I have a plan ...
You are brilliant, I am LMAO.
I've enjoyed your Nigerian wife and have feelings sad about illicit encounter. Therefore, being my shame building, I've transferred 10 U.S. million dollars to Official President account of now deceased Nigerian official.
I got to know your Nigerian wife,in a manner which reveals naked guilt She is fond of swinging hammock, but family in great tragedy in Gotchascrewdadishu, calls me away on emergency trip on foot.
Please forward information proprietary to me so that I may reclaim pride and return monies.
Requiring great secrecy, please open up as easy as your wife and transmit necessary bancing information.
Thank you sir.
My father used to just cut up Mom's credit cards.
There is no woman on the planet worth burning that kind of money for just to spite her. For a lot less than that I am sure he could have had her whacked. Then he could spend it on some high maintenance hottie
Wished he had invited me. I would have brought the marshmellows and hopefully stuff a few bills down my pants pocket while roasting marshmellows.
What do they charge him with? Does Jerusalem require burning permits?
This may not be the dumbest thing I've ever heard of, but it's damn sure in the top ten!
"'Tis a sad, but true, tale."
Aye, lad. More than on affluent home has gone down the tubes because it couldn't hand it's tot and toddy, eh?
