Greg and Stacye Terry on Tuesday went home with a bag of what they thought was their order and found three clear bags inside, filled with dollar bills and change. The money turned out to be the restaurant's deposit.
An employee at the McDonald's quickly discovered the mistake and was able to catch up with the Terrys. The couple immediately returned all the money.
"The second that he said it was their deposit, my first thing was, 'Get in the truck. Let's take it back.' There's no other way to have it. I couldn't live with myself with that," said Stacye Terry.
The Terrys say they got a good laugh out of the experience. The store's owner said they are grateful to the customers and are looking into why the mix-up happened.
