NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 6, 2013) A couple in suburban Nashville, Tenn., got more than they expected when they placed a to-go order for breakfast at a McDonald's drive-thru.
The bag they were handed contained thousands of dollars in cash that had been packaged for a bank deposit.
The bag was placed near the drive-thru orders on Tuesday morning and an employee mistakenly passed it to Greg and Stacye Terry.
The employee realized the mistake almost immediately and followed the Terrys to their home a short distance away.
Meanwhile, the couple opened the bag and discovered the money.
They said they had a good laugh about it and even posted photos of the cash on Facebook before returning it.
Store owner and operator Phil Gray in a statement thanked the Terrys and said he is looking into how the mistake happened.
