A suburban Nashville couple got more than they expected in their to-go order from a McDonald's drive-thru: A bag of cold cash.

Thousands of dollars in cash packaged for a bank deposit had been placed in a paper to-go bag near the drive-thru orders, WTVF-TV reported.

An employee mistakenly passed the bag to Greg and Stacye Terry who had just been looking for breakfast.

The employee realised the mistake almost immediately and followed the Terrys to their home a short distance away.

Meanwhile, the couple was ready for breakfast.

"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."

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.
