Found this funny news story on Yahoo! News this morning and thought I'd share: BERLIN - An early-morning bank customer had a bit of a shock when he found a horse at the automatic teller machine. The horse's owner, identified only as Wolfgang H., had a bit too much to drink the night before and decided to sleep it off inside the bank's heated foyer, police said Tuesday. The 40-year-old machinist told Bild newspaper he had had "a few beers" with a friend in Wiesenburg, southwest of Berlin, and decided to hit the hay in the bank on his way home. Confronted with the lack of a hitching-post, he brought the 6-year-old horse, named Sammy, in with him. When a customer came across the horse and sleeping rider in the bank at 4:15 a.m. Monday, he called police, who then came and woke the owner up and sent him on his way. No charges were filed, but there might be some cleanup needed: Apparently Sammy made his own after-hours deposit on the carpet. ---- I had to laugh when I read that. Are there laws in Germany about 'drinking and riding'? :)

Wow, that's really funny. It's a good thing the horse didn't step on him when he was sleeping.

That's too funny. lol I'm not sure if there is a law but I'm guessing not since they let him go.
