HERMITAGE, Tenn., Dec. 5 (UPI) -- A Tennessee couple who visited the McDonald's drive-through for some food said they were mistakenly given a bag full of cash instead of a meal.

Greg and Stacye Terry said they went to the McDonald's in Hermitage as part of their usual breakfast routine and did not open the bag they thought contained their food until they arrived home, WTVF-TV, Nashville, reported Thursday.

"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," she said. "There is no other way to have it. I couldn't live with myself."

Phil Gray, the owner of the McDonald's, praised the couple for returning the money.

"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," he said.

The Terrys said they will continue to frequent the McDonald's.

"We'll be back," Greg Terry said. "But, next time I'm sure we'll leave with our normal breakfast order.

"This will never, ever happen again in our lifetime," he said.
