While relaxing one fine day inside his home in Berkeley, California, Mike Vegas decided to order pizza and a box of wings from Domino’s Pizza. He ate a slice of pizza before stashing the rest of the food inside the fridge, without checking the contents of the other box. Then, he went to work.
His phone kept ringing and indicating he had messages but he ignored them because he was at work. What he did not know is that right at those moments, someone was in trouble because of the money inside his fridge. For instead of chicken wings, the box actually contained $1,300 which the delivery boy had placed in for safekeeping. The guy was on his way to the bank and did not want to lose the money.
The delivery guy was worried sick of what could happen to the money and also to his job, that’s for sure, especially because Vegas was not taking his calls or answering the text messages.
It was only after Vegas had gone home and taken out the box of wings that he discovered the delivery guy’s blunder. He posted a photo of the money with the following caption: When you order Dominoes Pizza and instead of wings you get cash….. #doihavetogiveitback #ihavetotakeitback #karmatest #dominoespizza
Of course, he was half-joking about keeping the money. Vegas would later say that he wanted to keep the money but knew it wasn’t his to keep; thus, he went to the Domino’s Pizza outlet he ordered from to return the cash. For his honesty, the pizza chain offered him a reward he is sure to enjoy: free pizza for an entire year!
Store manager Zia Mumtaz was quite happy to reward Vegas for his honesty, saying, “Honest people are really, really hard to find these days.”
