Mum Praises White Van Man's 'Kind Gesture' After He Pays For Her McDonald's Order

Mum Praises White Van Man's 'Kind Gesture' After He Pays For Her McDonald's Order

A mum said she thought she was being pranked after a kind-hearted stranger paid for her order when she visited McDonald's with her kids.

Megan Downy took her daughters and nephews to the Drive-Thru at a branch of Maccie's in Belfast, where she ordered three happy meals, a McChicken sandwich meal, two triple cheese burgers and some medium fries.

When it came to paying for her order, Megan was told by the cashier that the man in the white van in front had already paid.

Speaking to Belfast Live, Megan said: "When I was told that the man in the van in front of us had paid for our order I thought I was being pranked and it was some sort of scam. I was worried that they might have paid for the order and taken it with them as well.

"But I was told that it wasn't a big joke and he had kindly paid for our food as a nice gesture.

"I really couldn't believe it and caught up with the man to say thank you to him because it really meant a lot."

How nice is that?

Megan went on to say that staff at the branch told her he often pays for a stranger's meal.

Speaking about the incredible gesture, the grateful landlord told Business Live: "I saw that a customer who'd enjoyed a pint with us on a Tuesday evening had tipped £100.

"It was just a £4.90 order so I thought it had to have been a mistake. We spoke to the guys at [payment software company] Yoello who were able to put us in contact with the customer.

"When we spoke to him it turned out that he really did intend to tip that much to help the place out through all the Covid-19 issues.

"I was stunned, it was quite mind-blowing that someone would think of doing that. It's nice to hear there's still some good in the world!"
