A kindergarten teacher in Hunan found one of her four-year-old students carrying 20,000 yuan cash in his backpack during a routine homework check on March 5, which he reportedly brought to school so that he could play poker with his friends ‘like adults’. Kids these days.
The young boy, Xin, said he’d once seen his family members collecting money while playing poker games at home. On March 3, he watched his mother put a stash of money in the closet, so he took it and stuffed it in his backpack while she was out.
He carried the bag containing 20,000 yuan and went to school, planning to play with his friends in class, but as he hadn’t found any opportunities to play with them, the money was sitting inside his backpack for two days before it was found.
On that day, Xin didn’t hand in his homework, and when he told the teacher that it was in his bag, she opened it and found, to her surprise, some toys and 20,000 yuan cash inside.
The teacher immediately called Xin’s mom, who said she’d been searching for the money for the past two days.
