You want fries with that thousands of dollars of cash? McDonalds was unintentionally generous to a customer in Hermitage, Tennessee, according to a Yahoo! News report on Thursday morning.

McDonalds Murder: Man Killed in Chicago McDonalds Parking Lot

Greg Terry got home from a trip to a McDonald’s drive-thru (probably one of those infamous drive-thrus McDonald’s has without garbage buckets) and explained to his wife Stacye that their McDonalds breakfast was not edible because there was cash in the bag instead of breakfast food.

Reportedly, thousands of dollars in cash was inside the bag, wrapped in clear plastic bags. Along with the hefty amount of cash was a bank deposit slip. The bag was handed to Terry at the drive-thru by an employee.

Being honest, the Terrys returned the cash to the McDonalds. Stacye Terry, the wife, said that the second that her husband said it was their deposit, her first response was to get in their truck and take it back. She said there is no other way she would have it because she couldn’t live with herself if it wasn’t returned.

Obviously, the McDonald’s and the employee who made the error were grateful for the Terrys’ honest move.

Phil Gray, the owner and operator of the Hermitage McDonald’s said that he is grateful for this customer and the action they took upon realizing the error. He said they are looking in to why this mistake happened. He concluded by complimenting his community by saying that, most importantly, he knows that he is part of a community with the values that were evidenced by the Terrys’ actions.

Through this experience, the Terrys also learned that McDonald’s in Hermitage, Tennessee doesn’t give rewards for such honest acts of kindness.
