Krispy Kreme Accidentally Gives Customer $5,000 Box Of Donuts

The manager of a Krispy Kreme in North Carolina protected each day’s haul by hiding it in a donut box. Krispy Kreme just happens to sell donuts by the boxful to its customers, so it’s clear that absolutely nothing could go wrong with this plan.

Oh wait, this happened:

The store manager typically puts the box full of money near the drive through window and then drives her own car around – and picks up the cash-filled doughnut box through the window, WRAL reported.

A clerk who was unfamiliar with the routine passed the money out to a customer at the Bragg Boulevard store, police told WRAL.

So far, nobody has come forward to complain that their box of donuts was inedible.
