Chick-fil-A, a Christian company which closes every Sunday, serves delicious food. But the moral principles in which they promote as a business means they hire outstanding, ethical employees who go above the call of duty to make customers happy.
In this case, a man was eating breakfast at Chick-fil-A and dropped a pile of $100 bills on the ground. He was carrying the money for his business and was on the way to the bank to make a deposit.
But when he arrived at the bank, he couldn’t figure out where the money went. Thankfully, an honest Chick-fil-A employee saved the money and returned it to him safely! Outstanding!
But Friday afternoon he was able to walk into the Chick-fil-A in downtown Decatur to meet the honest, young employee, Jacob King. King immediately placed the money back into Long’s hands, with a smile.
Last week, on April 1, Long was at a table at the restaurant eating breakfast, and the restaurant’s security camera shows the cash falling to the floor.
It was money for Long’s business, and it was a large part of the $1,200 bank deposit he was about to make.
It wasn’t until Long arrived at the bank when he realized that the cash part of the deposit, hundreds of dollars, was missing.
The restaurant’s video shows the cash sitting on the floor as Long got up to leave. The video shows the cash remaining there untouched in the busy restaurant for 14 minutes, until the Chick-fil-A employee, Jacob King, spotted it.
“I just looked down and I saw a little green square thing on the floor,” King said. “I picked it up, and I was a little worried that somebody was missing that much money.”
King brought the money up front to the manager. The restaurant’s operator, John Crays, tried relentlessly to identify and find the man who’d dropped it, showing customers a photo of him taken from the video, hoping someone would know him.
This is how all people should treat each other. Many people would be tempted to take the money, but it’s not right to keep it. This young man is a role model for his peers!
