A very tired employee at a German bank fell asleep at the keyboard while entering a transaction and accidentally turned a small transfer into a $200 million order. The man was supposed to transfer 62.40 Euros from a bank account belonging to a retiree. Because he was nodding off, he accidentally entered 222,222,222.22 euro, roughly equal to $293 million American dollars. To make matters worse, his co-worker apparently missed the error and verified that it was correct. The error was quickly discovered, but the colleague who should have seen it was fired. The co-worker thought it was not fair for him to lose his job since the other person entered the mistake, so he took the case to court and got his job back. The court ruled the original mistake was an accident, and it is not likely the first employee will face any action either.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
