What would you do if you opened your Taco Bell bags to find $3,600 in cash? I’d probably convince myself I could keep it so long as I eventually spent it all at the same Taco Bell. That way at least if I died of a guilty conscience it would be in the next few months.
I have a few unanswered questions though. Why was there money in Taco Bell bags in the first place? Who put it there? I can’t imagine Taco Bell policy is to put the bank deposits in to-go bags. Was the employee about to steal it and accidentally handed over the wrong bags? Was this a clever plot by the take-out worker and the three customers just didn’t get the memo that they would be given a cut if they got the cash out of the store for her? In any case, I’ll be in that area later this summer so I’ll stop in and see if they’re still doing the free cash giveaway.
