Burger King Customer Gets Bag Filled With $2,631 Instead Of Chicken Sandwich, Returns It

When you’re hungry for a chicken sandwich, you’re hungry for a chicken sandwich. But while most people might settle for taking a bag filled with a few thousand bucks in cash, one Burger King drive-thru customer was nice enough to return free money and just take the food instead.

A woman in Rochester, N.H. went through her local Burger King drive-thru and ordered a tea and junior spicy chicken sandwich, reports Foster’s Daily Democrat, and was on her way home when she realized she’d be hungry a little bit longer.

Opening the fast food bag revealed a stash of cash totaling $2,631, which she brought home to check out with her husband. Most of the cash was inside two bank deposit bags.

While the husband admitted, “We are not perfect human beings,” and said they’d considering keeping the surprise cash, they instead opted to return the moolah.

Burger King confirmed the incident but didn’t explain how the money ended up in a food bag instead of the bank. The couple said the workers were grateful to get the loot back.

“One person said ‘they were going to get fired’ so it felt good knowing we helped them keep their jobs,” the woman said, adding that she was offered five free meals in exchange for being so honest.
