A New Hampshire woman got a surprise at a Burger King drive-thru: a bag full of cash instead of food. Janelle Jones says she discovered on the way home that the bag did not contain the sweet tea and junior spicy chicken sandwich that she had ordered yesterday at the Rochester fast-food restaurant. Foster's Daily Democrat reports that Jones called her husband, and they decided to return the $2,631, which was a Burger King bank deposit. Matthew Jones says the couple considered keeping the money, but he says he and his wife are Jehovah's Witnesses, and that "Jehovah sees everything." The restaurant confirmed the couple's account but had no comment on it. (More Burger King stories.)
