Taco Bell customers Kennidi Rude, Luke Postma and Grant Kruse found $3,600 in their takeout bag in place of their order from the fast food joint in Kentood, Mich. Instead of making off with the extra cash, the group opted to return it to the Taco Bell restaurant.

"I opened my bag to get my food and it ended up being three bags of money – a lot of money – and then another wad of like a ton of twenties," Rue told local TV station WZZM. "We added it up. We were like, 'What do we do with this now?' "

Rue added, "Of course, initially, you want to keep it, of course. But then you're like, 'What's the right thing to do?' We were saying we'd never feel guilty about bringing it back. It obviously wasn't ours,” she added, speaking of friends Postma and Kruse. “It's not like we were losing anything in giving it back. So, we just thought we'd bring it back and just do it the right way."

This is not the first time a Taco Bell employee has mistakenly given the store’s bank deposit to a drive-thru customer. In 2010, a young woman received a takeout order of $2,000. Unlike the trio in Michigan – she didn’t return the funds, causing police to (fruitlessly) search the surrounding area for the vehicle she'd been driving.

Why does this keep happening? According to a Taco Bell manager, it’s store policy for employees to put the deposit in a Taco Bell delivery bag and hand it out to the manager when they come through the drive-thru.
