Last Sunday, an older woman in the drive-thru line at McDonald’s in Scottsburg, IN told the cashier she wanted to pay for the $36 order of the man behind her. She didn’t know him, but he was in a van with four children. She told the cashier, Hunter Hostetler, to tell the man “Happy Father’s Day!”
When the man received the free order of food including four Happy Meals, he told the cashier he wanted to pay for the two cars behind him. And so the day went, until by the end of the day, 167 customers had paid it forward, buying someone else’s meal.
So who was the woman who started the good samaritan chain?
“I keep looking for her, hoping I see her and can tell her what happened,” Hostetler told ABC News. “I don’t know if she knows, but I hope to see her again so I can tell her.”
