And You Thought You Were Going To Get Some Work Done Today…

Our friends at ERSnews.com have a back-to-work-after-the-long-weekend treat for you all (albeit a geeky investigative-reporter-type treat). The State Controller’s office has a dandy unclaimed property search tool online. You can punch in any one’s name and see what’s owed them and by whom (we, unfortunately, are owed nothing).

ERS found a few missing shekels for George Clooney and other people who probably don’t rummage between their seat cushions too often. But you don’t have to limit the search to celebrities: Search yourself! Search your boss! Search your ex!

You could spend the entire day just searching for debts owed to your friends and co-workers. Happy short week, everyone!
