BERLIN (Reuters) - A German businessman lost more than 10,000 euros (9,000 pounds) in a plastic bag after forgetting the cash in a public toilet, authorities said Thursday.
Hesse state police said the man took the “five-figure” sum with him as he stopped to relieve himself in a motorway service station near Haiger in western Germany. He then drove off.
A police spokesman said it was not clear why the man took half an hour to notice his loss -- by which time the money had gone.
