At the Burger King drive through window in Rochester, N.H., Janelle Jones ordered a sandwich and drink. When she opened the bag there was no sandwich inside. Instead there was $2,631, mostly inside bank deposit bags.
After talking with her husband Matthew, and thinking about it for a while, the pair decided to return the money.
“It felt a lot better than keeping it,” Matthew Jones said.
It is not always easy to do the right thing. A $2600 windfall could be hard to give up. But the promise of the Proverb is the person of integrity is always better off. --Illustration by Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
