America still has a way of putting a smile on your face!
Torie Keene of Lakeland, Florida was paying for her meal at her local McDonald’s drive-thru Wednesday morning when she told the cashier, Marisabel Figueroa, that she wanted to pay for the meal of the car behind her.
When Figueroa told the next car that their meal had been paid for by Keene, she said that the passenger was so moved that she also decided to pay for the meal of the car behind her, and after that a chain reaction of people paying it forward began.
“It kept going and going” according to the Business Insider.
“After the 15th car I started tally marking the number of people that were participating on a piece of paper,” Figueroa continued.
There’s no breaking the American spirit!
Figueroa worked from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, and said that the chain lasted almost the entire length of her shift.
“I just kept giving everyone the same message, and they were all so stunned and so happy,” Figueroa said. “One lady even paid for the meals of the next three cars behind her.”
She said that in her 12 years working for McDonald’s, she’d never experienced something like this.
“I feel very blessed to have been a part of all that,” she said.
What a great story!
