WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 20: Newly redesigned $100 notes lay in stacks at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing on May 20, 2013 in Washington, DC. The one hundred dollar bills will be released this fall and has new security features, such as a duplicating portrait of Benjamin Franklin and microprinting added to make the bill more difficult to counterfeit.

There were clearly some serious issues in this family.

One Austrian grandmother was determined to have the last say in what must have been a long family revenge cycle. When the 85-year-old died in her retirement home, 950,000 euros (over $1 million) was found shredded in her room, along with her account books. The tiny bits of paper were found on her bed, prosecutor Erich Habitzl confirmed.

All of her efforts were in vain, though. The deputy head of the central bank of the Republic of Austria cashier division told local news that if “the heirs can only find shreds of money and if the origin of the money is assured, then of course it can all be replaced,” adding that “If we didn’t pay out the money then we would be punishing the wrong people.”

One has to wonder why their granny was so against them getting their hands on any money.

Probably a good idea to make a note about saying "hi" to grandma over the holidays, too.
