A Virginia man got more than he bargained for when he found $4500 in a box of chicken he ordered from a fast food restaurant.

According to FOX 59, James Minor ordered a meal from a Richmond area Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits drive thru Friday. When he realized the chicken was cold, he sent it back to the person working at the window who told him to wait while they made fresh chicken. 

When Minor returned home with the new bag and checked his order, he found $4500 in cash and deposit slips  instead of chicken. He quickly recorded cell phone footage and returned to the restaurant.

“I’m honest. I know what integrity is. I have integrity,” Minor told WTVR CBS 6.

Minor asked for a manager and explained what happened, but the reaction was not what he expected.

“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.”

Minor said he was offered another meal and a tailgate party. He then tried calling a district manager, who he says hung up on him, before getting through to the chain’s corporate headquarters.

From that call he was offered a $100 gift certificate, but Minor says he wants something else.

“I deserve respect, an apologetic letter from the Bojangles’ company and probably a cash reward,” he said. “What is a $100 gift certificate when you’re bringing in $4,500?”
