When a man in Berkeley, California, ordered wings and pizza from Domino's, he wasn't expecting the side of greens that arrived with his delivery.

As ABC7 reports, Mike Vegas discovered $1,300 in cash in a box that should have contained chicken.

"About 5 a.m., I got home from work and went to my refrigerator and pulled out what I thought was wings. It turned out to be $1,300 bucks," he tells the station.

So how did the funds wind up with the wings? The Domino's employee (who had been placing frantic phone calls to Vegas) was planning to drive to the bank after one final delivery. For safe keeping, he stored the cash in a box normally reserved for food.

Vegas chose to return the money to its rightful owner, but he tells WGN-TV it wasn't easy.

"I wanted to keep it, believe me. But I can't, I can't do that," he said.

Domino's rewarded Vegas' decision with free pizza for a year.
