When this woman ordered a box of chicken wings from Domino’s she definitely didn’t expect the free side-dish that came with it. Identified as Selena Avalos, from San Jose, California, the woman thought she was getting a regular delivery box, only to discover being the unexpected finder of a bundle of $5,000 that had somehow ended up in her box.

Following the adage of honesty is the best policy, Avalos got in touch with Domino’s about the cash. According to a Telegraph report, the woman was surprised, though, about the length of time the restaurant took to get back to her and take the cash.

“I was like, I can’t keep it, it’s a crazy amount of money, it’s not like it’s $20 you find, you know. It’s almost $5,000,” she reportedly told ABC7.

Domino’s collected the money after the restaurant manager got in touch with Avalos and arranged for it to be picked up. Not only that, as a show of appreciation, Avalos now gets a year-long supply of free Domino’s pizzas.

As if that wasn’t enough (and honestly, we think it wasn’t!), Avalos’ employer has given her a week off with pay for her honesty!

Well, all this may not still be worth the $5,000 she gave back, but she’s definitely earned herself a place in today’s honesty hall of fame, should anyone ever decide to create one.

    New marketing technique. Domino will advertise, that some orders will come along with gift items depending on your luck.

        I found a Rs 50 note 35 years ago....no one came to claim it for an hour in the scorching heat. Mother bought rice and dal with that money and gave it to thepoor...u never know, it may have belonged to a poor man who needed that desperately. Parents should create this type of example for their children. If u keep such money for yourself, it will surely corrode your soul !
