Germans are fed up with the euro?

German forgets thousands of euros in toilet
Yesterday, 04:28 pm

Print Story
A German businessman lost more than 10,000 euros (9,000 pounds) in a plastic bag after forgetting the cash in a public toilet, authorities said Thursday. Hesse state police said the man took the "five-figure" sum with him as he stopped to relieve himself in a motorway service station near Haiger in western Germany. He then drove off.

A police spokesman said it was not clear why the man took half an hour to notice his loss -- by which time the money had gone.

I really miss the times before the Euro, the plane ticket used to be the most expensive part of the trip.

Euros, Marks, Dollars, Pounds. I'd think that if you left any large amount of these currencies in the Men's room, they'd all be gone, so I'm wondering about the title of this thread?
