Jehovah sees everything, even at the home of the Whopper

Janelle Jones stopped at the Burger King drive-through in Rochester, NH, around 4:30 p.m. last Friday. She ordered a junior spicy chicken sandwich and sweet tea. On her way home, she discovered there was no food in the sandwich bag. Instead, it was filled with money. She immediately called her husband, Matthew, and told him what happened. He suggested she continue home, where the couple inspected the windfall -- $2,631 in unmarked bills --most of it in two bank deposit bags.

"We're not perfect human beings," Matt later told a reporter. He admitted they considered keeping the money, which they certainly could use. Why didn't they? He said he and his wife are Jehovah's Witnesses, and "Jehovah sees everything."

When they returned the money about an hour later, employees at the store were extremely thankful, he said. "It felt a lot better than keeping it."

"One person at the store said they would have been fired," Janelle added, "so it felt good knowing we helped them keep their jobs. The manager told me they would give me five free meals, and that their corporate office said 'thank you.'"

If you feel she deserves more than five meals, send your gift to her in care of Manager, Burger King, 250 N. Main St., Rochester, NH 03867. Mark it "for Janelle, from Jehovah."
