Off the Wall News: Tennessee couple accidentally gets bag of cash at drive-thru

NASHVILLE — 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 was ready for breakfast.

"My husband opened the bag and discovered the money inside," Stacye Terry said. "He said, 'You are not going to believe this.' Sure enough, it was their bank deposit money.

"The second that he said it was their deposit, my first thing was let's get in the truck and take it back."

They
said they had a good laugh and even took photos of the cash before
returning it to the employee. They posted a picture to Facebook of the
wads of bills in plastic bags with what look like yellow deposit slips.

The
owner and operator of the McDonald's, Phil Gray, in a statement thanked
the Terrys and said he is looking into how the mistake happened.
