一、【Text】课文

 

a team called Mutilated Ladies which deals with claims from people who fed their money to a machine or to their dog. Dogs, it

seems, love to chew up money!

A recent case concerns Jane Butlin whose fiancé, John, runs a successful furniture business. John had a very good day and put

his wallet containing £3,000 into the microwave oven for safekeeping. Then he and Jane went horse-riding. When they got

home, Jane cooked their dinner in the microwave oven and without realizing it, cooked her fiancé’s wallet as well. Imagine their

dismay when they found a beautufully-cooked wallet and notes turned to ash! John went to see his bank magnager who sent the

remains of wallet and the money to the secial department of the Band of England in Newcastle: the Mutilated Ladies! They

examined the remains and John got all his money back. ‘So long as there’s something to identify, we will give people their money

back,’ said a spokeswoman for the Band. ‘Last year, we paid £1.5m on 21,000 claims.’
