McDonald's serves couple big bag of cash

Posted on Saturday, 7 December, 2013 | Comment icon 34 comments

The bag of money had been placed on the drive thru orders counter by mistake. Image Credit:
A couple got an early Christmas present when they ordered food from their local McDonald's drive thru.
Greg and Stacye Terry had picked up their breakfast at the McDonald's branch in Hermitage and had returned home to eat it when, upon opening the bag, they discovered that the drive thru employee had handed them a massive pile of cash instead.

"My husband opened the bag and discovered the money inside," said Stacye Terry. "He said, ‘You are not going to believe this.' Sure enough, it was their bank deposit money."

An employee from the restaurant turned up a short time later having realized the mistake and the couple were happy to return the bag. It turned out that the deposit money had been placed on the counter with the drive thru orders and then handed to the couple by accident.

"We are grateful for this customer and the action they took upon realizing our error," McDonald's 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."

Both Greg and Stacye are keen to return to McDonald's in the future. "We'll be back. We'll be back," said Greg. "But, next time I'm sure we'll leave with our normal breakfast order."

Its shocking, all those years of intense training, lost years of leisure time because of burger studying, mind boggling videos on how to fry the perfect pre-cut packet chip, give them the $15 they deserve.

Terrible that someone be paid enough to not have to ask the government for a handout as well. Terrible. $15 an hour. Here in Oz that means they have to sell 3 whole Big Mac Meals to make a profit per hour per employee.

Damn. Can't say I'd be that kind to give it back, though that's probably why it never happens to me!

Weird I saw a prank a guy did like this before here's the link and just about the message before about the wage. Wouldn't they just want to replace the burger guy, or even the cashiers faster with a machine that would just do all there jobs faster and cheaper sooner. If you raised there wages wouldn't they just be out of a job sooner then later?

LOL - I think this lady was mad because she didn't get the bag of cash she ordered with her Big Mac.
