Mike Vegas of Berkeley, California ordered pizza and wings on September 20. He ate one slice of pizza and put the rest in the refrigerator. When he returned to eat the rest later, he discovered the cash.
“About 5:00 a.m., I got home from work and went to my refrigerator and pulled out what I thought was wings,” Vegas told ABC7 San Francisco. “It turned out to be $1,300.”
The delivery driver called multiple times while Vegas was at work, but he did not answer.
“My phone started blowing up and I wasn’t looking at the random messages,” Vegas told ABC7 San Francisco. “I was at work so I wasn’t answering.”
The driver apparently left the cash in the pizza box for safe keeping. He was going to deposit the cash to the bank. When Vegas discovered the cash, he took to Facebook and asked his friends what to do. He received mixed reactions in the comments.
“I wanted to keep it, believe me,” Vegas told ABC7 San Francisco. “But I can’t, I can’t do that.”.
So, he returned the cash and Zia Mumtaz, general manager of that Domino’s location, was so grateful that Vegas was honest and offered him something in return.
“Just to thank you, we’re going to offer you free pizza for a whole year,” Mumtaz said to Vegas.
Looks like good deeds pay off!
