*Uh let’s see, you stammer as you peruse the menu while sitting in your car, in line at the Burger King Drive thru. I’ll have a burger, some fries, and instead of ketchup can you give me BBQ sauce, please? Sure, says the voice behind the speaker. And when you get up to the window, there’s a young worker with headphones around her neck, just waiting for you to get your order and drive off so she can finish listening to Ariana Grande. But in the process of her distraction, your burger and fries is still sitting on the counter. But what she has given you instead works just fine. A bag full of cash.
Oh, somebody’s gonna get their butt fired!
No one was more surprised than Janelle Jones, who went through the Burger King drive-thru and was handed a bag full of cash instead of her food.
Jones says she discovered the bag didn’t contain the sweet tea and junior spicy chicken sandwich that she had ordered on the way home on Friday at the Rochester New Hampshire fast-food restaurant.
According to Foster’s Daily Democrat Jones called her husband and they decided to return the $2,631, which turned out to be a Burger King bank deposit.
Matthew Jones, the husband, says the couple briefly considered keeping the money, which they certainly could have used. But he says he and his wife are Jehovah’s Witnesses, and that “Jehovah sees everything.”
The newspaper reports that the restaurant confirmed the couple’s account but had no comment on it.
That’s probably best.
Would you have returned the money, knowing you could have easily gotten away with it?
