Man fuming with customer’s reaction after he pays for their McDonald’s

Man fuming with customer’s reaction after he pays for their McDonald’s

One man’s idea of doing a good deed didn’t exactly go to plan as he went to pick up his takeaway from a McDonald’s drive thru. Have a look at what happened here:


Donning a Stone Island jacket and a yellow bobble hat, the man documents the events on TikTok by illustrating his intent to the viewers.

The start of what one assumes is going to be a heart-warming story sees him say to the camera: “I’m going to pay for this person’s food behind me, I’m at McDonald’s.”


This writer certainly had the tissues ready ahead of the beautiful moment that was surely to follow. One lucky person is just about to have their meal paid for them, and will surely be overcome with emotion and gratitude after this random act of kindness.

However, as you may have already gathered, this do not go to plan and it all goes sour very quickly in this 15-second TikTok video.

After doing his good deed of the day, the man – @skandalmg80 on TikTok – is seemingly flabbergasted at the response of the lucky McDonald’s customer receiving their free meal.

He added: “Can you actually believe the world we live in right now?


“You pay for someone's food and they stick their fingers up at you? For f**k sake, seriously!”

It’s probably safe to say that our good Samaritan wasn’t ‘lovin’ it’ after failing to receive any gratitude for his gesture.

And with the way social media works, sympathy for the Stone-Island clad chap was in very short supply.

The wonderfully-named @alrightfans published the clip to Twitter with this damning assessment in the caption: “Short story about virtue signalling and sitting there waiting for a medal.”

The man was on the wrong foot with his viewers immediately after using the wrong spelling of ‘there’ to describe his actions, using the caption: ‘Paid for there food’, rather than the correct use of ‘their.’

In response to the tweet, @RPrower said: “Colnel mustard buying macdonalds and wants attention like he just housed the homeless. Lemon.”

Meanwhile, @Pipey78 made reference to a pack of strong menthol lozengers in his response, and tweeted: "Haha, absolutely glorious. Stick to advertising Fisherman’s Friend lad!!”


Ah well, it didn’t exactly go to plan for the Stone Island man. Perhaps he’d have better luck at another fast food franchise?

Perhaps the customers at Burger King or KFC would be more receptive to a free food instead? We look forward to the next video!
