Drive-Thru Customer Steals Entire Cash Register From McDonald’s
It’s common knowledge that fast food restaurants don’t keep a lot of cash at their drive-through windows in the overnight hours — which might be why one thief in Chicago decided to steal the entire cash register.
The incident happened at about 4:05 a.m. Thursday when someone in a minivan pulled up to a McDonald’s drive-thru window and broke it, according to the Chicago P.D. He then reached in and somehow managed to lift the register up and out of the eatery before speeding away, police say.

Does The PSL Taste Different At Starbucks?
An ex-Starbucks barista is explaining why the chain’s pumpkin spice latte tastes different this year.
“Maria” (NSFW) took to TikTok to claim Starbucks has switched to “actual pumpkin ingredients” instead of their usual artificial pumpkin flavoring.
She says Starbucks has also changed the recipe so that you actually get fewer pumps of flavoring.
