He was debating whether or not to give it back

A man has been dealing with the dilemma of a lifetime after he was mistakenly handed a bulging bag of cash at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Josiah Vargas (@dookiedoyboy) popped into the fast-food chain for a sausage McMuffin one morning when the bizarre incident occurred.

In a video posted to his TikTok account, he revealed that he got a lot more than he was bargaining for after placing his breakfast order – and now he’s trying to decide whether or not to hand it back.

Commenting on social media, he says: “I just went to McDonald’s and he’s handed me my sausage McMuffin and this bag.

“Well, what’s in this bag?”

He then opens it up, showing several see-through packets filled with money.

“Just a couple thousand dollars here,” he goes on. “Like, what is this? Why would they do this?

“What the f**k? Now I have to return this because I’m a good person, I guess.”

The camera cuts to Josiah sitting in his car outside a branch of McDonald’s.

“Why would you guys do this to me? Do you know how bad I want this money? Why put me in this situation?” he asks.

He then goes in to hand the money back to someone working behind the counter, asking: “Are ya’ll laundering money?”

Understandably, staff at the restaurant were over the moon to see that the money had been returned.

“Oh my God! I really wanna give you a hug,” gasps one.

Getting back in his car, Josiah said they gave him a $200 reward for his trouble, which isn’t to be sniffed at.

“They were just all hugging me and thanking me and crying, and I get free McDonald’s for a month, I guess,” he says.

Signing off, the good Samaritan urged his followers to ‘do good’, as it clearly pays off.

Since sharing his story, his initial video has been viewed more than 1.5 million times, with thousands offering their thoughts on the situation.

“Bro, you probably just saved all their jobs,” said one.

While another added: “Someone kept their job because you did the right thing. Good on you, man.”
