McDonald's Money

By  | 

A mother of three got a lot more than she ordered at a McDonald's drive-thru.

Janice Meissner ordered a bagel and a Diet Coke for breakfast last week, but when she got her food bag it seemed a little too heavy.

That was because it had hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in a Ziplock bag - money that turned out to be the restaurant's bank deposit.

McDonald's officials, who wouldn't say exactly how much was involved, said the deposit was placed in a food bag as a security procedure to make it less conspicuous before it was taken to the bank.

They said it was accidentally left too close to the drive-thru window of the Weston fast-foot chain.

Meissner returned the money to the employee who handed her the bag. McDonald's officials say they will send Meissner a thank-you letter and $50 in gift certificates.
