Texas man returns all the Whataburger numbers he swiped over the years

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Justice and patty melts were served at a San Antonio-area Whataburger over the weekend when one of the restaurant's biggest fans walked in, fessed up and returned all of his contraband. Joseph Mora, 23, shared a video with mySA.com, showing himself walking up to a Whataburger in La Vernia with about 150 table tents in a Walmart shopping bag, and handing them over to their rightful owner."I was just so embarrassed, I didn't even know what to say, there were people all around," he told mySA.com.

Mora said the Whataburger in La Vernia is one of the few spots open late, where he could hang out with his brothers and friends. Most times he'd order his favorite, a patty melt with avocados. The bunch would just kick back and chat late into the night.
"We'd go every night, we were night owls," the Whataburglar said. "We would just go and the night shift would leave the numbers at our table, my collection just kind of grew pretty quickly."
Mora's stock eventually found its home on his dresser."My mom had been giving me a guilt trip," he said "One time, she packed them all up and tried taking them back, I found them in her car and took them back to my room."But it was love that convinced him to finally give up his collection.

Mora will be getting married this weekend and figured it was time to part ways with his numbers before moving into a new apartment with his bride-to-be.
"I figured it would be better if I just turned them in, it would be justice to take them back from where I got them from," he said.
Whataburger reached out to Mora after seeing the video he tweeted on Sunday. He said the company is sending him a t-shirt as a reward.
