Darrell Cox stopped for breakfast at a diner in his neighborhood for bacon and eggs. He paid for his meal, but did not realize he left something very important behind. After Cox left, Johnny, a worker at the restaurant found an envelope containing $3,000 in the bathroom. He gave it to the manager, who noticed a bank slip. He returned the envelope and its contents to the bank, where clerks were able to figure out that the money belonged to Cox. The next morning, Cox returned to the diner and thanked Johnny for being so honest. He also gave him a reward of $300. Cox said he would have known where the money went if Johnny had not been so honest. He said, “Makes me feel a lot better about people. Knowing there are a lot of honest people.—Jim L.
