Would you like cash with that?

An Indiana man was shocked to find thousands of dollars instead of the breakfast sandwich he ordered in his takeout bag from a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Josiah Vargas posted about it on TikTok where he is seen in a video pulling small plastic bags filled with bills from the to-go bag — and not the Sausage McMuffin he likely couldn’t wait to chow down on.

“What is this? Why would they do this?” he asks in the video as he holds up the money.

Like any normal human with a pulse, he was unsure what to do with it.

“Why would you guys do this to me?” he asked in the clip. “You know how bad I want this money?”

While the devil on his one shoulder tried to tempt Vargas with keeping the money, Vargas went with the angel on his other side and he is eventually seen in the video walking back into the restaurant to return the piles of cash because he is a “good person.”

Grateful McDonald’s employees could be heard on the video expressing their relief when he walked in with the money.

“Oh my God, look at that,” one worker said. “I really want to give you a hug.”

Vargas left the restaurant and said the staffers were crying as they hugged him and thanked him, adding that he was given $200 and free McDonald’s for a month.

He added: “Do good, people.”

Most people were on board with Vargas’ decision.

“It’s called integrity, doing the right thing even when no one is looking! Great job,” one person commented.

Another added: “Bro, you probably just saved all their jobs.”

A third person suggested, “They owe this guy free McDonalds for at least a year, not a month,” while one commenter thought it was the right outcome: “Nice! That $200 is worth all the good karma for helping those workers.”
