Johnny Duckworth works at Randy's Southside Diner and Darrell Cox comes in three or four times a week. After breakfast one day Cox accidentally left $3,000 in cash behind. Duckworth returned it and got $300 as a tip.

"It makes me feel a lot better about people, knowing there are a lot of honest people out here," Cox said.

Duckworth says the thought of pocketing the cash never crossed his mind.
