NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)-- A Nashville couple who placed an order at a McDonald's drive-thru in Hermitage got more than they expected. Instead of getting a hot-meal, they received a bag filled with cash. 

"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."

But they didn't have to. A McDonald's employee who almost immediately realized the mistake quickly jumped in a car and followed the couple to their home just a short distance away. 

They said they had a good laugh and even took photos of the cash before returning it to the employee. They posted a picture to Facebook of the wads of bills in plastic bags with what look like yellow deposit slips.

The owner and operator of the McDonald's, Phil Gray, in a statement thanked the Terrys and said he is looking into how the mistake happened.
