A San Jose woman ordered a box of chicken wings and received a huge box of cash instead, but then she had an oddly difficult time returning the money. 

A San Jose woman got an odd stroke of luck last week when she ordered lunch and was given an enormous pile of money instead of chicken wings, and a San Jose Domino’s restaurant was extremely lucky that it accidentally delivered its bank deposit to it’s most honest customer.

According to ABC News, Selena Avalos of San Jose ordered a box of Domino’s chicken wings for lunch on Tuesday. Inside the chicken wing box, however, she found $5,000 in cash. Avalos works at a cell phone store and says that right away she assumed she’d accidentally been given the restaurant’s bank deposit and called the Domino’s to let the employees know where the money was. She was surprised when nobody called her back.

Finally Avalos contacted the local news, and they connected her with Domino’s corporate, which connected her with the franchisee.

The restaurant was understandably thrilled to get its money back and said it would be giving Avalos free pizza for a year as a reward. Avalos’ employer was also so impressed with her honesty that she’s also getting a week of paid vacation from work.
