This week Matty shared a double-whammy from Taco Bell, a teen cashier was forced to give out fake bills as change in a NYC store. She had accidentally accepted some fake bills and was told she could either pay for the bills out of her pocket or pass the bills onto customers. After 2 weeks she refused and was confronted by supervisors posing as cops, telling her to continue to pass the bills or face arrest. Matty said he would probably have done the same thing in the young cashier’s position. He also shared a scam story of his own…

Taco Bell calculated that a lifetime of takeout from their restaurants equates to around $10,000 according to a new contest they have going on. Matty shared this story on Junkiosity’s Facebook page a couple of weeks ago but felt it needed some on-air attention!

A few weeks ago we shared a story about a neighbor in Florida that was upset by a kid’s year-round lemonade stand. Turns out the neighbor isn’t a lily-white law-abiding citizen. The neighbor has allegedly been running a business out of his home and has not purchased a tax license to do so. He will be fined $250/day until he comes under compliance. Karma’s a real bitch…

Dan wasn’t around to weigh in on the latest controversy, apparently several celebrities have had online accounts hacked and nude photos compromised. Those celebrities include Jennifer Lawrence & Kate Upton, among others. Matty says nothing is secure anymore, if you don’t want those photos leaked – then don’t take them in the first place!

At a ballgame this weekend Matty noticed a lot of aluminum bottles of beer floating around and wondered why beer hasn’t been offered in plastic bottles. Lo and behold, an article came up explaining why beer has been bottled in glass for the most part. An interesting read for sure!

Australian kids can rejoice once more! The ban of playground games has been lifted! Initially they were banned because of poor sportsmanship & lack of resilience. This hearkens back to giving every kid a trophy so their feelings won’t be hurt…

There’s following your dreams the right way and the wrong way. An article found on Salon documented one poor sap’s attempt at following his dream by quitting his semi-secure job and jumping right into becoming a freelance copywriter. In all the books Matty has read about following one’s dream or changing careers he has learned one thing – make sure you have a plan in place before you leap…

Until next week Junkies!
