Where’s the Beef? Robbery at Wendy’s doesn’t stack up
Atlanta police report that a man ripped off a Wendy’s drive-through for almost $600 late last Saturday night, but wasn’t happy with the amount and called up the restaurant to complain. Twice. “Next time there better be more than $586!”
Apparently the ski-masked and gun toting man walked up to the outside of the fast-food drive-through and demanded the cash drawer. The employee complied, and the robber grabbed the drawer and ran off. He discarded the drawer in the bushes and made off with the cash on foot.
Later that night after the robber had time to count the cash, he repeatedly called the restaurant in frustration to complain about the haul. The manager should have told him the drawer was now full again and he should come back… with the local authorities waiting for him. He obviously isn’t that bright, it might have worked.
Besides 586 bucks in a single cash register isn’t too bad. The managers are “supposed” to skim off excess money throughout the night and lock it in the safe. At least we did back when I worked in a fast food joint. There wasn’t supposed to be more than $150 in there. It’s not like someone is going to regularly roll up to the register and peel a $100 bill off a stack of cash to pay for a $5 value meal.
With the close proximity of fast-food restaurants always clumped together, he probably could have hit more than one and increased his nightly total. $586 at Wendy’s, $491 at McDonald’s, $611 at the Burger King, another $535 at the Dunkin Donuts… that would have been a decent night’s pull, and he wouldn’t have had to call back to complain…
Oh wait, hitting up the Dunkin Donut shop probably wouldn’t have been the best idea… that’s where all the cops hang out…
