When Greg and Stacye Terry ordered breakfast off their local McDonald's' Dollar Menu, they didn't expect to get handed a bag full of dollars.

"My husband opened the bag and discovered the money inside," Stacye Terry told NewsChannel5.

The Hermitage, Tennessee, couple were expecting to find the breakfast that had just ordered from the drive-thru at their favorite McDonald's restaurant on Lebanon Road, but instead found the restaurant's daily bank deposit, which had been handed to them in error by a bumbling employee.

The couple, who were at home when they realized the mixup, had planned to immediately return the money (after a few photos for their Facebook page, that is), but were beaten to the punch by the same employee, who arrived at their door minutes later.

"We are grateful for this customer and the action they took upon realizing our error," the store's owner Phil Gray said in a statement. "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."

No word on whether the Terrys ever got their breakfast.
