trillionaire

Can you image what might happen if you found the almost unimaginable amount of money in your bank account that Reggie Theus did? Four trillion dollars was sitting in Mr Theus’ bank account when he logged into his bank to check his account status, but I can bet he wasn’t expecting four trillion dollars and I certainly bet his face was priceless to say the least.

Of course this was a huge mistake (huge may be somewhat of an understatement in this case) on behalf of the bank who had been credited the unfathomable amount due to a glitch on the banks systems, no doubt much to Mr Theus’ disappointment given that he said he had big plans for the windfall.

Newk’s restaurant area director Reggie Theus was going to be a good guy and pay off the US national debt with three trillion dollar, leaving a trillion to spare which he said would leave him with “enough to live on”.

“Well, I was definitely surprised when I looked in my account and saw that much money in there. I looked it up and there’s never been a trillionaire before. I may be the first ever, so that’s pretty neat to be able to say.” He said.

The funds have been returned and Theus has returned to his day job, but at least he gets to claim the title of the four trillion dollar man!
