AUGUST 22, 2007

I was talking with three guys in the office yesterday (who will remain nameless) and one of them mentioned that a cashier at a local business had given him $10 extra change (a $20 bill instead of a $10), and he thought it was his lucky day! And most everyone agreed with him!

So what would you do? Well, you gave a resounding "GIVE IT BACK" this morning... We had calls flooding the lines telling us they would give it back, that it's stealing, and a couple of listeners even drove back to the store later if they didn't catch the mistake until they went home. As one woman said, "I have a conscience". Ouch.

And if you think that's nutty, how about this couple in Eastbourne, England: LEE and MARY HUMPHREY say they've eaten the same meal at McDonald's every day for the last 17 years.

A double hamburger each with a shared large fries, in case you're wondering, and if you're doing the math, daily dining over 17 years amounts to more than 45-hundred times.

For you weight watchers, that's 320 calories and 13 grams of fat in the burger and 26 grams and 540 calories in the fries. But they claim they're fit for their age and walk three miles every day.

And they vow never to eat anywhere else. And they're both 84. The Eastbourne Argus newspaper says the McD's employees know the couple so well, they have their order waiting for them the moment they arrive and provide them with their own personal booth.

17 years of McDonald's and they're 84. That's a tough one. I can't decide if this is an "Awww" or "Ewww" story.

The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing grew to $201 million today.The winning numbers from last night's drawing were: 8, 38, 54, 55 and 56. The Mega Ball number was 2.

None of the tickets sold for yesterday’s $171 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were 11 second-prize winners from last night’s drawing, matching all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 each. Also, 48 tickets matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.
