San Jose woman ordered chicken wings, got thousands of dollars instead

SAN JOSE, Calif. (WPVI) -- A San Jose, California, woman ordered chicken wings from a local Domino's store and got a lunch order she'll never forget.

On Tuesday afternoon, Spacetel Wireless manager Selena Avalos ordered some chicken wings from her local Domino's pizza restaurant.

She opened the box thinking that her order was mistakenly swapped for breadsticks, but instead she saw thousands of dollars in cash.

She immediately called the downtown Domino's store where she had placed her order in hopes of getting in touch with a manager. Nobody had called her back.

Avalos was confused. "Wouldn't they be thinking, 'Where did that money go?' " she asked.

Without a clear response, Avalos turned to our sister station KGO for help. After getting in touch with corporate, they were able to connect the Spacetel manager with the franchise owner.

Not wanting to keep the money, she aimed to return the funds much sooner. For her honesty, her employer is giving her a week off with pay.

She will also receive free pizza for an entire year. This mix-up shows that honesty can get you some dough - pizza dough that is.
