    * Would you like some Honey BBQ with that bag of cash?

    A KFC restaurant accidentally handed a man a bag of cash instead of his food order. The man called the police to return the money. Consumerist ran the story earlier today, and it's pretty cool: OP Man Gets Money Bag, Not Food At KFC

    Would you have returned the money?

    I would have returned it. Besides, they probably got his plate number on a security camera on the drive through.
    I hope he got a free 12 piece bucket with 2 sides and biscuits for his honesty

    I would have returned it, I would be too scared I'd get caught stealing money! That is pretty cool though!

    I would return the money out of honesty. I would feel guilty and dishonest keeping that money.

    Either that or I would anonymously donate it to the poor. KFC wouldn't miss that revenue.

    I'd return it out of honesty. I was with my Mom once when I was a kid and she found a wallet with $800 in it at a store and turned it in. I also had a wallet returned to me that I had dropped in a grocery store parking lot.

    I once was in line at a mall for a comic book signing when I was a kid, and I had about $400 of my hard earned cash in it ready to purchase some comics. I was sitting up against a wall for about 5 minutes when I realized my wallet had fallen out of my pocket. It was gone within minutes. Someone had stolen it and I lost all that cash. It probably took me a month or more to earn that as a kid, and it was gone in a second. Most people wouldn't return a wallet with cash. I have respect for you and your mother for giving those back.

    It was there error, I would have let them come and find me. If I drove off and never looked in the bag then it is not my fault . Plus, you should be penalized for being that careless with a "bag of money" that could be mistaken for a "bag of food" for a customer. Poor management.

    I imagine that the money bag was placed inside a food bag so that it wouldn't be that obvious when the employee left carrying the money bag.

    But yes, clearly some carelessness was involved. :p

    Wow, this was so careless. I would never place a bank bag near the drive-thru for any reason, let alone leave it unattended. It's management's fault here, but the crew should have been more aware to their surroundings.

    Since I usually inspect what I have (had instances of getting wrong stuff and / or missing something in the past), I would return it of course and get what I ordered.

    Sorry money doesn't taste too good lol.

    Would you return to the same drive-thru?

    A slightly similar thing happened to me today when I bought a new laptop carry bag. I buy it and I'm going out the security scanner thing at the door, when it beeps and I come back inside to the checkout lady. She rescans the carry bag and walks it through the scanner herself, only for it to go off again. So she just says it's ok and I go out to the carpark.

    So I'm taking all the paper padding out of the front of it, to put my laptop in, making sure it fits and all, and low and behold there's a small laptop Microsoft mouse in there and this must have been what was causing the scanner to go off. It's small and I didn't notice it, amongst all the paper stuffing.

    So I go back into the store letting her know what happened and she was so appreciative. I felt like a bit of a dill for not having properly checked all the pockets and stuff in the carry bag, and I then realised I could have been in strife if she found that mouse, after setting the scanner thingie off, thinking I was trying to sneak it out of the store, inside the bag.

    Just think -- Aussie Bob could have been in serious criminal trouble. All over a mini Microsoft mouse.
