Taco Bell customers get cash instead of food
Taco Bell drive-thru gives cash, not food
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — That was no burrito.
Three people who ordered food at a Taco Bell drive-thru in western Michigan got something more valuable: $3,600 in cash.
A Taco Bell employee mistakenly passed the cash to the trio instead of their food Saturday. The money was returned a short time later.
Kennidi Rue told WZZM-TV and MLive.com that she and two friends thought about keeping the money but decided they would feel guilty if they didn’t return it. Grand Rapids police Capt. Jeff Hertel confirmed the incident, saying an officer was called to assist.
“I thought it was joke,” said Rue, 18, of Holland, Mich. “I thought we were on camera. … The store manager literally just burst out in tears. She was so happy we brought it back.”
The money was in a store bag for deposit at a bank. A message seeking comment was left with Taco Bell.
Rue, boyfriend Grant Kruse, 20, and another friend, Luke Postma, 25, got their meal when they returned the money.
Fitness test waived for cybersoldiers
LONDON (AP) — Flabby keyboard jockeys, stringy coders and out-of-shape hackers: The British military wants you.
British Defense Minister Philip Hammond told lawmakers Wednesday that military physical aptitude tests won’t apply to computer experts working as reservists.
He says the military will “specifically be recruiting cyberreservists, who will not necessarily have to have the same levels of fitness or deployability as reservists in general.”
Britain, like other countries, is boosting its electronic capabilities as attention increasingly turns to the twin threats of cyberespionage and cybersabotage.
The U.K. is already active in the world of hacking.
Documents recently leaked by U.S. intelligence worker Edward Snowden have revealed details of alleged aggressive British cyberattacks against other countries’ diplomats at international conferences.
