You Think Your Paycheck Stinks?

Stinky paycheck empties bank
DANBURY, Conn. (UPI) -- A truly stinky paycheck forced the evacuation of a bank in New Milford, Conn., and a lockdown of a nearby children's center, police say. Police said after authorities were contacted by the Bank of America regarding a noxious smell Thursday, the New Milford bank was emptied to allow hazardous materials experts to search the premises, the Waterbury (Conn.) Republican-American reported. Children at the Beehive Children's Center behind the bank were kept inside as a precaution during the search. Police said the unusual smell was eventually traced to a paycheck handled by a man with machine cutting oil on his hands. The check had been deposited at the bank and the smell never dissipated, the Republican-American reported. The emergency precautions were called off after the smelly check was found and the bank was allowed to reopen about an hour after it was closed.
