Takeout comes with cold cash
A suburban Nashville couple got more than they expected at a McDonald's drive-through. WTVF-TV reports that thousands of dollars for a bank deposit, which had been placed in a paper to-go bag near similarly bagged orders on Tuesday, was passed to Greg and Stacye Terry, who were just looking for breakfast. Back home, the Terrys sat down to eat, and Greg Terry opened the bag. "He said, 'You are not going to believe this,' " Stacye said. Realizing it was a bank deposit, they had a good laugh, took photos and gave the cash back.
Storm the hill
Driving a tank not for the untrained
Sometimes an owner's manual is not enough. The Oregonian reports that a 1969 Chieftain battle tank purchased by a resident near Gold Beach was unloaded along U.S. 101 by a truck driver after a look at the steep grade. The owner's caretaker, Jeffrey Glossop. 58, of Pistol River, decided he could drive it up the hill. State police Lt. Gregg Hastings notes that Glossop had the operator's manual. But the 50-ton tank slipped out of gear and rolled back across the busy highway, crashing through a guardrail. On a second try, it rolled through another guardrail and down an embankment. Glossop was cited for reckless driving and criminal mischief. The tank is fine.
