A Georgia woman was shocked to find that $543.10 came with her KFC meal after the restaurant’s manager accidentally placed its daily deposit in her bag, Insider reports.
JoAnn Oliver discovered the cash and immediately called the police. The money was later returned to the restaurant, the City of Jackson Police Department said in a statement.
“Mrs. Oliver had gone to a local restaurant drive-through on her lunch break and returned to work to enjoy her lunch. When she opened her lunch and removed her sandwich, she [found] $543.10 in cash under her sandwich,”
the department wrote on their Facebook page. Authorities and employees at the KFC thanked Oliver for her act of kindness.
“Not only did Mrs. Oliver do the right thing but she saved the manager’s job,”
the department said on Facebook.
“Mrs. Oliver thank you for reminding us that we have amazing Citizens in Jackson and it’s people like you that make us great!”
KFC refunded Oliver for the lunch she had bought and gave her a free meal, according to WSB-TV.
Oliver told the outlet that even though she could have used that money for her husband’s medical bills, who is living with cancer, good things won’t come from being dishonest.
“If you don’t do the right thing it’s gonna come back on you,”
“I mean It wasn’t mine. I didn’t need to keep it. I’ll get mine in the future.”
