It's not often you place an order at a McDonald's drive-thru and leave with a bag full of cash. That is precisely what happened to a Tennessee couple who opened the bag expecting breakfast sandwiches.

"Honey, you're not going to believe this," Greg Terry told his wife, Stacye.

The cash, wrapped in plastic, was clearly a bank deposit. It had been placed in a paper bag and mistakenly given to the Terrys by a McDonald's drive-thru employee.

"The second that [Greg] said it was their deposit, my first thing was let's get in the truck and take it back," said Stacye Terry. "There is no other way to have it. I couldn't live with myself."

After returning the money, McDonalds Owner and Operator Phil Gray issued this statement: "We are grateful for this customer and the action they took upon realizing our error. We are looking in to why this mistake happened, but what is most important to us is knowing that we are part a community with the values that were evidenced by this person's actions."
