Earlier this month, a teenager discovered he had enough money to buy all the skateboards, Sunny D, and high-grade Molly he could ever want in life when his bank accidentally put $31,000 into his account. Naturally, it only took a couple weeks for the money to be almost completely blown.

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, the error occurred when an adult who actually earns a living and contributes to society tried to deposit $31,000 into his account at a Hull, Georgia branch of First Citizens Bank. The teller mistakenly deposited the funds into the teenager's account, since the two account-holders had the same name. This is apparently the only bank in America that hasn't switched to the whole "account numbers" thing yet.
