What's German For "Holy Shit!"?

From the What would you do? Department. Some workers at a Berlin scrap metal yard are to undergo psychiatric tests after finding 100,000 euros ($128,500) in a safe - and giving it back to the dumbfuck bank that scrapped it.

Apparently an employee at Germany's Postbank had failed to take out the cash before sending the safe to the scrapyard.

They gave it back??? To a bank??? Wouldn't you just say What money?

What they did isn't stupid. It's just ethical.

actually if you want to get technical, the money no longer belonged to the bank; in other words, it became trash, which, once the trash has been "taken out", it becomes public property... as soon as the bank scrapped that safe, the money was fair game.

so, yes, the finders became the weepers and the losers became the keepers ;) ahh how sadly ironic.
