Boy Blows Parents' Life Savings on Candy
A 9-year-old Ukrainian boy caused a big headache for his parents (and maybe a stomachache for himself) by spending their entire life savings on sweets, reports Russia's Ria Novosti. During a school vacation, the boy took nearly $4,000 from his parents' stash of euros and dollars, which was stowed oh-so-securely under the couch. With the help of an adult described as having a mental disorder, the boy converted them into Ukrainian hryvnas. His accomplice got a cut of the cash, then it was off to the candy shop. The kid does have a sweet streak, however—the haul was too much to eat on his own, so he shared it with pals.
