NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â€” A suburban Nashville couple got more than they expected in their to-go order in a McDonald's drive-thru: A bag of cold cash.
WTVF-TV reports thousands of dollars in cash packaged for a bank deposit had been placed in a paper to-go bag near the drive-thru orders on Tuesday morning. An employee mistakenly passed the bag to Greg and Stacye Terry who had just been looking for breakfast.
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 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.
