Couple Buy Denny's Waitress A Car To Stop Her Walking 14 Miles To Work

Couple Buy Denny's Waitress A Car To Stop Her Walking 14 Miles To Work

A waitress has spoken of her disbelief after a couple she served breakfast to surprised her with a brand new car after hearing about her horrendous commute.

Adrianna Edwards, from Texas, United States, treks 14 miles a day on foot to work at a Denny's in Galveston.

But she will no longer have to make the five-hour journey every day after the customers - who preferred to remain anonymous - gifted her with a white Nissan Sentra.

They had been sitting in Adrianna's section when they overheard that she had some travel troubles and decided to help her out.

They left after finishing their meal, returning a few hours later with the new set of wheels.

Speaking to CNN, Adrianna, who had been trying to save up for a car of her own, said she was stunned by their generosity.

She said: "I have bills to pay. 'I've got to eat. You've got to do what you've got to do."

When she went to work on Tuesday morning, Adrianna didn't think she would be leaving with a car, and, at first, she thought it was a joke.

But nope, it was for real and her arduous commute has been cut down to a mere 30 minutes. However, not only that, it also means she will be able to start college sooner than she had thought.

Adrianna said: "In my head, I was like 'Pranks are cool and everything, but this one seems a tad bit cruel'.

"I still feel like I'm dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there's still a car there."

The mystery couple said they were over the moon that Adrianna liked her gift but have said they don't want anything in return.

The woman said: "She teared up, which made me happy that she was so moved by that."

Instead, they just want Adrianna do her bit and help someone else in the future.

The anonymous do-gooder added: "I know it's Thanksgiving, but I said Merry Christmas and that hopefully someday she'll pay it forward."

And Adrianna has said she is only too happy to do her bit.

She added: "When I see somebody in need, I'll probably be more likely to help them out (and) to do everything that I can to help them out.

"I just hope that one day when I'm financially stable enough, I can help somebody else in need."
