This customer in her late 60’s came to Hostler and paid her bill along with this, she paid additional $36 for the customer behind her, and asked Hostler to wish them Happy Father’s Day, Hostler says the lady paid in Full and left the Drive-way.
When this customer was told that, his meal is all paid by the customer who just left, he offered to pay for the two cars behind him. This happened and it kept on going till McDonald’s Drive-thru closed that night.
