Man Receives $4,500 CASH Instead Of Fried Chicken At A Bojangles Drive-Thru In Virginia

Everything about this situation sounds super sketchy. A man named James Minor pulled up to a Bojangles’ drive-thru in Henrico County, Virgina. He ordered a box of chicken but then it was cold when they served it to him. So he complained. But his NEW box of chicken happened to just casually have $4,500 in cash. Ummm…. Anyone else instantly think this?

Paging Gus Fring. It gets better. The manager of the store was a straight-up asshole to Minor when he did the right thing and took the cash back into the store:

He said when he saw the money he thought that he was being set up – or that someone inside the store was trying to steal money.

Minor rushed inside the restaurant, asked for a manager and explained what happened.

But Minor said he was stunned by the manager’s response about what would have happened if he had not come back inside with the money.

“He told me in an arrogant, nasty attitude being disrespectful saying that, ‘We would’ve called the authorities on you, too,’” Minor said. “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.”

So what does he get for being a Good Samaritan? A $100 gift certificate and a tailgate party. He’s pissed, though. “What is a $100 gift certificate when you’re bringing in $4,500?”

He has a point…
