Simple acts of kindness can go a long way toward restoring our faith in humanity. Helping someone when they least expect can make anyone’s bad day a little better like how a Foodpanda rider received RM1k in cash from a generous customer or when the kind KFC manager returned a customer’s card to the owner.
A TikTok user named Qush posted a video on his account @qushayry11 offering to pay for the meals of not one, but two cars in line behind him at a drive-thru. The video had approximately 1.6 million views, 122.8k likes, over 3k comments, and counting.
In the video posted this week, the TikTok user pulled up to the McDonald’s drive-thru and ordered himself an iced americano. When it came time to pay, he told the cashier that he would cover the payment for the two cars behind him. To confirm, the cashier had asked if he wanted to see the amount he was going to pay. He then proceeded to pay for his order first, followed by the orders from both cars.
He had not revealed the cost of the meals and had generously tipped the cashier. This was not the first time the user had kindly paid for someone else’s order. He had previously uploaded the first video of this two-part series on 29th March of this year, in which he paid for the car behind him as well and tipped the cashier RM30.
The kind gesture warmed the hearts of the netizens. The TikTok user’s generosity was praised in the comments section. A user wrote “It’s the best feeling when we can share our blessings together, no matter how much we pay. (I) aspire to become like this” Aside from the heartfelt reactions, there were also some hilarious comments made by netizens. “Which McDonald’s are you going to after this? I’d like to follow (behind you),” a comment read.
We hope that this selfless act will serve as an inspiration to all of us to help one another whenever and wherever we can.
