[Gooey News] This just in: KSL 5 Eyewitness News' Randall Jeppesen must be bucking for celestial bonus points with his "Woman finds money she threw away in trash truck" story.
It's about a "Provo woman" (too important/compromised/ humiliated/whatever to be ID'd) who was late to the bank and had to take her company's deposit of $200K home with her where she accidentally threw it away. She realized her misstep only after garbage trucks carried off the week's trash.
Here's where it gets good: She caught up with the garbage truck and convinced the driver (tell me how anyone without a warrant can do this) to empty the truck's contents so she could dig through them.
She was quoted as saying: "I said to my friend, ‘We just need to say a prayer.'" (Apparently, no swearing allowed.) Blessed be, the magic happened. After searching for only a few minutes, she found the checks with just "a little bit of goo on them," KSL reports on its Website.
KSL summarizes with: "She calls it one of those faith-building moments."
Yes, Virginia, it was a faith-building moment for faithful viewers but a faith-destroying moment for anyone depending on KSL for real news.
PS: In other happy news, the woman was able to keep her job with her company (also unnamed). [Jerre Wroble]
