JoAnn Oliver who lives in Jackson Georgia went to KFC for lunch and came home a richer woman--she found $543.10 under her sandwich. But she knew despite having huge medical bills for her husband's cancer treatment that she couldn't keep it.
Turns out the restaurant misplaced its daily deposit.
Oliver called the police and returned the money to the restaurant, the City of Jackson Police Department said in a statement.
"Mrs. Oliver had gone to a local restaurant drive through on her lunch break and returned to work to enjoy her lunch. When she opened her lunch, and removed her sandwich, she was surprised to find $543.10 in cash under her sandwich," the department said on Facebook. (see the post below!)
KFC refunded the value of Oliver's lunch and gave her a free meal, WSB-TV reported. Oliver told the outlet that her family could have used the money since her husband is living with cancer, and the family is facing about $2 million in medical bills.
Oliver told the outlet she considered keeping some of the money "for a second," but ultimately, she called the police instead.
"If you don't do the right thing it's gonna come back on you," Oliver said. "I mean It wasn't mine. I didn't need to keep it. I'll get mine in the future."
