GOOD NEWS Chick-Fil-A Employee Returns More Than $1K to Customer
A man accidentally dropped $1,200 in cash on the floor of a Chick-Fil-A restaurant, but what an employee did with the money has gone viral.
On April 1, Victor Long, an Atlanta civil rights attorney, was eating breakfast at a Chick-Fil-A in Decatur, GA, when the money fell out of his pocket. He didn't notice it was missing and left the eatery.
But Jacob King, an employee at the restaurant, noticed the cash on the floor and immediately notified his manager.
King told Neil Cavuto today on "Your World" that he notified his manager immediately of what he found.
"We realized that somebody lost a whole lot of money," King said.
King and his manager looked at the restaurant's security footage and decided to print images of Long in the restaurant.
They shared his picture with other customers in hopes that someone would recognize him, King said.
Long told Cavuto that he had just been paid by a client and was planning on depositing the money into his bank account.
"When I got to the bank, I realized I didn't have the money," Long told Cavuto. "I had gone so many places that day, I didn’t feel it would do any good to backtrack and then I also felt that with that money not identified in any way, if someone found it they would just keep it. Then I said, 'Well, I hope the person who finds it needs it.'"
Long returned to the eatery a few days later and claimed the money. When he met with King, he gave him a thank you card and a $100 reward for finding the money.
