McDonald's accidentally serves bag of cash

34 posts in this topic

Hermitage, Tenn. -- Greg and Stacye Terry got the surprise of their lives after recent trip to a McDonald's in Hermitage, Tenn. -- a takeout bag filled with cash.

Someone at the restaurant had readied thousand of dollars of receipts for deposit in the bank and placed the money in a McDonald's bag, Nashville's NewsChannel5.com reported. Somehow, an employee at the drive-thru gave that bag to the Terrys instead of the one containing their breakfast order.

Greg opened the bag and discovered the mistake when the couple got home, Stacye told NewsChannel5.com:

"He said, 'You are not going to believe this.' Sure enough, it was their bank deposit money."

I really think McDonald's should install a 3rd drive thru window so that you can just pull forward and exchange all the wrong stuff they gave you to begin with. :whistle:

Jeeze, they want how much for dishing up a burger?

Do bank staff even get that much there, and they CAN give out cash?

Some bank tellers here are paid so little they are getting food stamps. Taxpayers still bailing out the banks.

"I would like to have 2 cheeseburger, 2 x french fries with ketchup, 2 medium coke and the daily earnings from today"

"The daily earnings with french or with garlic dressing?"

"French please"

"Ok, it´s 12,80$ in total"

"Here it is"

"Thank you, have a nice day"

Actually, you can't use food stamps at McDonalds. Food stamps are usually reserved for steak and lobster at the grocery store, but if you go work for McDonalds, they will help you get food stamps.

Wait... did read this wrong or does this McDonalds keep their bank deposits in McDonalds to go bags?

I'm sure that everyone knows this:

It's not uncommon, at all, for the bank deposit to be delivered through the "drive-thru" of some fast-food restaurants concealed in a food bag.

This is for safety reasons(as opposed to walking to your car with a bank bag)

Of course, it needs to be delivered to the right person!

The cash might have tasted better than the meal they ordered.

Obviously the employee was distracted but that could have happen to anyone sooner or later, especially if the bank deposit was lying around hidden in a store bag.

I wouldn't have kept the money either, it would have been heavy on my consciousness feeling very bad for the employee's mistake.

But surely McDonald could have at least given some kind of reward to the couple, having fallen in other hands they might have never seen the deposit again.

This has got to be a B/S story, however if it`s true, without any shadow of a doubt, Greg and Stacye Terry you are 2 of the dumbest people ever to walk this Earth, i`m guessing the lack of IQ is down to 3 meals a day, every day of the year, every year of your life from, you guessed it Mcdonalds.

Many years ago when I was an assistant manager at a shoe store (yep, I did the Al Bundy thing), we would take the day's earnings to the bank in a regular bank bag. However, there needed to be opening till cash left on site for the morning shift. We had quite a stock room full of shoes and we would take the till bag an put it a random shoe box in the stock room and take out one shoe from the box and leave it on the manager's desk in the office. That way when the manager opened in the morning they could just find the box the money was in by using the model number and size of the shoe that was left on the desk.

They've long been out of business. Too bad because they were one of the best American made shoes.

Now all they make is bowling shoes.

For all we know it's true, it has been reported on many news websites and McDonald Harmitage's owner Phil Gray issued an official statement confirming the story and thanking the Terry couple.

Not sure why you are denigrating the couple for their action, what they did is honest. I eat very rarely at McDonald (or any fastfood for that matter) and if it happened to me I would not have kept the money either. The heaviness on my counsciousness would've been unbearable. I do not know, I guess it is called compassion for the employee's huge mistake and his faith.

Others would have kept the money bag without a second thought, I do not doubt that. Perhaps it depend what kind of personality you have. It may be easier for some.

My problem is with McDonald's reaction. A ''mere thank you'' seems to be very cheap with regard to the the couple's honest action. Some kind of reward, if only a generously loaded gift card might have probably been appreciated.

Who doesn't check their food before pulling away?? As much as that place screws up orders, I sit at the window until all of my food is accounted for.
