Bojangles customer James Minor wasn’t pleased when his chicken order was cold during an otherwise unremarkable visit last Friday, so he asked the drive-through attendant at the Virginia store to please replace his order with some warmer food. He was probably not expecting to instead be given a box full of money, which is exactly what happened.
“They put a bunch of cash and SunTrust deposit slips in my box, which is really interesting,” he says as he shoots video of what he figures was $4,500. “If I was a bad person, I wouldn’t turn this stuff in.”
Minor did turn it in, though, and immediately felt like his good deed had gone under-appreciated. A manager with a “nasty attitude” informed him, “We would’ve called the authorities on you,” before offering Minor a tailgate party as thanks. Minor wasn’t in the tailgating mood, so he called the manager’s superiors, who instead offered up a $100 Bojangles gift card, which Minor doesn’t really want, either. He tells a local news station, “I deserve respect, an apologetic letter from the Bojangles’ company and probably a cash reward … What is a $100 gift certificate when you’re bringing in $4,500?”
