Applebee's Server Returns $32K Accidentally Left by Family

One Applebee's employee helped solve the mystery of a missing $32,000 in cash a family left behind at one of its restaurants.

The Gonzalez family wanted to put the money for their upcoming vacation in a safe box at the bank, but the bank ran out of boxes, so they went to a nearby Applebee's to eat.

After contacting the Fresno Police Department about the missing money, they realized an employee who was looking to do the right thing and not expecting compensation had turned the money in.

According to an Applebee's manager, $32,000 is more than the annual salary of many of their servers.

Nothing like an inspiring act of morality and kindness just in time for the holidays!
