Customer returns $4500 in cash to restaurant, upset he only received gift card as 'thank you'
The fried chicken James Minor ordered from a Virginia Bojangle’s was cold – so he sent it back.
About five minutes later, an employee delivered him a fresh hot box of food. Minor opened the box and quickly discovered it contained more than $4000 in cash along with some bank deposit slips.
Minor thought that he was either being set up or that someone inside the store was trying to steal the money.
But he decided to take the money back in to the restaurant and speak with the manager.
The manager had an attitude problem, Minor told television station WTVR-TV. That thew him off.
“He told me in an arrogant, nasty attitude being disrespectful saying that, ‘We would’ve called the authorities on you, too,’” Minor said he was told if he hadn’t returned the money. “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.”
He was then offered a free meal at the fast food chain for his good deed. Minor ended up getting in contact with Bojangle’s corporate headquarters and was eventually offered a $100 gift card.
But Minor told the news station he believes he deserves more.
“I deserve respect, an apologetic letter from the Bojangles’ company and probably a cash reward,” he said. “What is a $100 gift certificate when you’re bringing in $4,500?”
Well said, James. Well said.
