Woman Finds Over $500 With Her KFC Chicken Sandwich

Joann Oliver of Jackson, Georgia, got more than she expected when she picked up her lunch at KFC. When she opened the bag to get out her tasty fried chicken sandwich, she found $543.10 in cash underneath it. Oliver immediately decided to contact the police to report the surprising discovery. It turns out that the restaurant’s daily deposit had found its way into the bag. Commending Oliver for being an upstanding citizen, the Jackson Police Department shared a statement on Facebook: "Not only did Mrs. Oliver do the right thing but she saved the manager's job. Mrs. Oliver, thank you for reminding us that we have amazing Citizens in Jackson and its people like you who make us great!” To show their appreciation for Oliver’s honesty, KFC gave her a full refund for her lunch, along with an additional free meal. In an interview, Oliver confessed that she definitely considered keeping some of the money because her husband is currently fighting cancer and they owe $2 million in medical bills. However, her conscience prompted her do the right thing. "If you don't do the right thing it's gonna come back on you. I mean It wasn't mine. I didn't need to keep it. I'll get mine in the future."
