If you thought you were muddling through a tough Wednesday, sit back and count your lucky stars that you're not the guy who threw away his life savings (that he kept in a shoe box) of $23K. Ouch.

"We take quite a bit of material every day so the odds of finding that are not much better than a needle in a haystack," said Linda Wise, general manager of the Samoa Resource Recovery Center operated by Recology.

Miraculously $22,940 of his savings managed to stay in the shoebox without falling out. Now that is just wild. Maybe he won't be keeping his life savings in a damn shoe box for m
