McDonald's cash was not on the menu board, but cash – a bag full of it – is what one couple from Hermitage, Tennessee ended up with in their to-go bag. Rather than their breakfast sandwiches, they drove off with thousands in cash, reports the Huffington Post on Friday.
Imagine the surprise when Greg Terry and his wife Stacye opened the bag and saw thousands in plastic-wrapped bills with serial numbers.
“My husband opened the bag and discovered the money inside,” said Stacye Terry. “He said, ‘You are not going to believe this.’ Sure enough, it was their bank deposit money.”
A McDonald’s employee at the Lebanon Road location accidentally handed the Terry’s the store’s bank deposit money. Quickly realizing their mistake, McDonald’s was able to reach the Terry’s at their home, just a few minutes away.
“The second that he 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.”
McDonald's Manager Phil Gray issued this statement in response to the Terry's actions: “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.”
Note to McDonald’s management: Stop using your to-go baggies as your bank deposit bags.
