Young Fast Food Chain Employee Surprises Customer When She Can't Pay
FaithTap Staff 3/13/2019
Sometimes, when we’ve had a long day at work, all we want to do is eat and relax. However, our plans don’t always go well. It’s like fate wants to add to our already tiring day!
But just when we think our day has gone from bad to worse, someone comes along and reminds us that there are still a lot of good people in the world. One woman who forgot her wallet learned this when someone saved her from being embarrassed and from going hungry.
Aundrea Duncan had a long day at the barn and all she wanted was to grab a hot meal at McDonald’s. She had just left work at 9 p.m. that Friday and she was looking forward to a filling meal at the popular fast food chain in Reading, Ohio.
As she was about to pay for her meal, she realized that she had forgotten her wallet at work. So, she told the cashier to cancel her order. To her surprise, though, the young man behind the counter said:
"It's okay, Ma'am. I got you."
He then took out his wallet and paid for her meal.
The post has been shared more than a thousand times and has garnered over 7,000 reactions, most of which were positive. It even got around to one special person, too, none other than Jeremia’s mother. She was very proud of her son’s actions. Many people who commented on Aundrea’s post also praised Jeremiah saying that he had a blessed heart.
Aundrea wanted to thank the young man, so she later went back to McDonald’s to repay him for the meal. She asked for another hug from him, too. Aundrea said she wanted to share her story so that it would give people hope that there is still a lot of goodness in the world and that it should be treasured and appreciated.
Jeremiah will continue to serve as an inspiration for others to trust in the kindness of strangers.
