Woman Gets Thousands of Dollars in Place of Chicken Wings
Domino’s Pizza is great in that it’s cheap, fast, and filling. They’ve expanded to include a bunch of side items such as chicken wings and apparently straight-up cash money. Selena Avalos of San Jose, California ordered a delivery of chicken wings but instead got a breadstick’s box filled with thousands of dollars.
From ABC 7:
On Tuesday afternoon, Spacetel Wireless manager Selena Avalos ordered some chicken wings from her local Domino’s pizza restaurant. She opened the box thinking that her order was mistakenly swapped for breadsticks, but instead she saw thousands of dollars in cash.
She immediately called the downtown Domino’s store where she had placed her order in hopes of getting in touch with a manager. Nobody had called her back. Avalos was confused. “Wouldn’t they be thinking, ‘Where did that money go?’” she asked.
Without a clear response, Avalos turned to ABC7 News for help. After getting in touch with corporate, we were able to connect the Spacetel manager with the franchise owner. Not wanting to keep the money, she aimed to return the funds much sooner. For her honesty, her employer is giving her a week off with pay.
She will also receive free pizza for an entire year. This mix-up shows that honesty can get you some dough — pizza dough that is.
Avalos got a week off with pay for being honest. She also got free pizza for a year which is worth more than the money she found in the box. It pays to be truthful I guess.
