A Virginia man who placed a drive-thru order for Bojangles’ fried chicken got a lot more than he asked for.
James Minor, whose order of chicken came out cold, decided to wait for employees inside the restaurant to make him a fresh batch. When he received the new bag, he opened it to find “close to $4,500 in cash and also SunTrust deposit slips” instead of his order, Minor told WTVR CBS 6, a local station.
In a video recorded on Minor’s own cellphone shortly after he opened the bag, he tells the camera, “I’m gonna do what’s right and turn it in.”
However, when Minor went inside the store to return the “order” and ask the manager what might have happened if he hadn’t noticed the mistake, the Bojangles’ manager turned critical.
“He told me in an arrogant, nasty attitude, being disrespectful, ‘We would’ve called the authorities on you, too,’” Minor told the station. “Here I am doing a good thing, bringing the money back. Most folks probably would’ve kept on going and wouldn’t have recognized it until they got home.”
When Minor tried to contact Bojangles’ headquarters, he was reportedly disconnected. Although he was later offered a $100 gift certificate, he told CBS 6 that he was not interested. “I deserve respect, an apologetic letter from the Bojangles’ company, and probably a cash reward,” Minor said. “What is a $100 gift certificate when you’re bringing in $4,500?”
