You're hungry, on the road, and don't have much time - that's what fast food is for. But one diner was apparently in too much of a rush, when he managed to "forget" ?25,000 in cash at a McDonald's in southern France this week.

It could have gone down as the biggest tip in the history of McDonald?s restaurants.

A distracted customer of the US fast food chain in southern France somehow ?forgot? a particularly important item when he left after a meal this week ? a backpack containing ?25,000 in cash. :wacko:

The young man went to the McDonald?s at Avignon, in the department of Vaucluse, for lunch on Tuesday, only to leave behind the package.

Realising his error some minutes later, he ran back into the restaurant panicking, and asked staff if they had seen his bag.

With the princely sum nowhere to be found, the diner must have thought the worst.

However, at around the same time the next day, an envelope containing a wad of cash was found buried in the diner?s rubbish bins.

Having been given the forgotten pile of money by workers, local police notified its owner by phone.

Before handing it over, however, officers were told by the absent-minded proprietor that he had earned it in a property deal, according to local daily Le Dauphin? Lib?r?.

Surprising that the man wasn't assumed to be a drug dealer. :rolleyes:

That customer was apparently just used to French restaurant prices.

You better not go to McDonald's then. I waited in line nearly 20 minutes for some chicken nuggets the other day. I figured they must have had to go kill the chicken or something.

^ They probably had to get supplies from another store.

Had to wait for the shipment from China?
