Aussie tradesman Zim Wither was horrified when he realised his mistake.
He had stopped to deposit $2000 he’d earned doing odd jobs for the last month. But he had also put himself under some pressure.
‘I was feeling impatient and pretty frustrated and I double-parked in a bus stop in a hurry,’ Zim told WA Today.
Using an ATM to hastily deposit the cash on December 23, Zim rushed off. But something wasn’t right.
‘I woke up at 3am with a really sick feeling in my stomach, and I checked my bank balance.
‘I realised what I'd done, I was so disappointed in myself... I couldn't go back to sleep then.’
With the banks not open until January, Zim was in for an anxious wait with only $30 in his account to get him through the Christmas period.
Finally able to reach the bank int he New Year he was told someone had handed in the missing $2000.
‘I squealed like a schoolgirl,’ he says.
He’s now desperate to find the Good Samaritan and thank them.
‘I can't afford to do too much for them, but I'd love to give them a small token of appreciation.
‘This means so much to me.’
