It is said that “money does not buy happiness”, but it can certainly make life easier for many people, so much so that it can “tempt” even the most honest at the sight of a good amount of money. , by chance. A woman from Georgia – United States – knows something about it. She was congratulated by the authorities after returning more than 500 euros in cash found in the bag of her sandwich, bought for her lunch break a few hours earlier at the KFC fast food restaurant, located near her office.
The money was enough to pay the bills and a small part of her husband’s medicine. The woman also said that her family has to face huge medical expenses for a total of around 2 million euros. She admitted that she had thought about keeping that sum to herself “for a second”. But then she chose to do the right thing and called the police.
In a post shared on Facebook, the City of Jackson Police Department thanked the woman for her gesture. “Character and integrity is doing what is right when no one is looking! they wrote.
“The Jackson Police Department wishes to honor Joann Oliver for her honesty and kindness. A few days ago, Jackson police were called to the woman’s workplace. She had gone to a KFC restaurant on her lunch break and returned to work to eat her meal,” the officers said.
Lorsqu’elle a ouvert le sachet, elle a été surprise de trouver 500 euros en espèces sous le sandwich. Après enquête, il a été déterminé que le dépôt quotidien du restaurant avait été accidentellement placé dans son sachet KFC. Joann a non seulement fait ce qu’il fallait, mais a également sauvé l’emploi du directeur.
