If you’ve ever lost money from your pocket or purse, there is an emotion that overwhelms you.
First the frantic looking, in pockets, in your car…backtracking physically and then mentally. There is the notion that it could be anywhere, culminating with the reality that wherever it is, it is likely gone.
Victor Long recently got that punch to the gut. He dropped a wad of cash at a Chick-fil-A restaurant. You know: the God-fearing restaurant run with Conservative values.
Employee Jacob King found the money, and turned it over to his manager. Chick-fil-A had no way of knowing to whom the money belonged, so they tracked Victor down through the security footage, likely a first for something of the type.
The Independent Journal reports:
Long, who teaches Sunday School at a Baptist church on the weekends, didn’t count on the kindness of the employees at his local Chick-fil-A.
An employee named Jacob King spotted the money and, instead of pocketing it, immediately took it to his manager.
“I just looked down and I saw a little green square thing on the floor,” King said. “I picked it up, and I was a little worried that somebody was missing that much money.”
Because the attorney who dropped the money had decided not to backtrack, the staff at Chick-fil-A had to go above and beyond in order to identify and locate the man.
