How Did That Happen?

Have you ever read the news, and wondered how did that happen? I recently read that earlier this month an armored car company left a bag of money with $20,000.00 in cash on the roof after it picked the money up from a casino. The truck left the casino with the money on the roof; it went to another company with the money still on the roof of the truck. And then after it left that casino for the highway, the money disappears from the top of the roof. The surveillance tapes verify that it was on the roof for the stops. Now, there are those who are saying this has to be a robbery. And there are those who are saying it’s a fluke.

I thought to myself when I first read the story how did that happen? Somebody didn’t do what they were supposed to. And then I thought to myself. Yes, somebody probably didn’t do what they were supposed to, but it happens all the time. The story reminded me that even though we plan for things in life, something will probably happen and things won’t go as planned. It doesn’t matter how many rules are put in place, there will be a time when someone doesn’t or isn’t able to follow that rule. And the result will be that things have gone wrong.

As for the missing money, I’m one of those people who believe it’s a fluke. I mean who hasn’t left a pop on top of their car and then driven off? And I hope whoever found the money is enjoying it immensely. Who couldn’t use an extra $20,000 they weren’t expecting. And to the casino that lost the money well you win some and loose some don’t you? That’s what you tell the people who game.

So remember the next time things don’t go the way you planned, it’s just part of life. It’ll be a great story that will make people wonder how did that happen.

  1. Ha - so true!! I can't tell you how many time I have left my coffee mug on top of the car and driven off! I did it just last week! I think it will be an epitaph on my grave "she was a good wife and mother, but burned the bread and broke 200 coffee cups" :D
    I hope whoever found it truly needed it and is having a great time with it! Thanks for this story. I hadn't heard it, but now it makes my day!
