Mystery Macca’s worker restores faith in humanity
WE'VE all been there - house hunting for a rental.
It's tough, with as many as 30 people turning up to inspections on a given day, which is no wonder one woman's post to thank a McDonald's drive-through attendant at Chinderah for paying for her family meal on Wednesday has gone viral on social media.
Danica Rodwell told her friends on Facebook a "beautiful young man" at the fast food counter had paid for her and her sons' meals after she realised she was short of cash.
"After a huge day driving around doing a million inspections house hunting, I am broke, exhausted, stressed beyond words and trying to scramble together a few dollars for my boys' dinner on the long drive home," she wrote.
"I've realised at the checkout I don't have enough.
"This beautiful young man, instead of asking me to move out of the drive-through as I was blocking others, he paid for the lot plus got a meal for me.
"I'm now sitting here in tears in the carpark because he has restored my faith that there are good people left."
The mystery fast-food staffer, whose photo and posting has been 'liked' by hundreds of people on social media, did not give his name to Ms Rodwell.
"He wouldn't give me his name because he just wanted to make me smile not to get recognition, but allowed me to get this photo," she continued.
"Pay it forward, I will. What a gorgeous young man!"
