Realizing you’ve forgotten your wallet when you reach to pay for something is a terrible feeling, but when it happened to a woman at McDonald’s in Reading, Ohio, a kind hearted employee paid for her meal. Aundrea Duncan says she had been working in the horse stables all day when she went to Mickey D’s, but after she ordered, she realized she left her wallet at work and asked the “handsome young man” behind the counter to cancel her order.
But that young man was Jeremiah McDonald-Hemphill, and he wasn’t about to let her go hungry. He told her “It’s okay, ma’am, I got you,” then took out his wallet and paid for her meal. Duncan was so blown away by his act of kindness, she asked him if she could hug him and gave him a big shout out in a Facebook post to thank him publicly for the good deed.
“He didn’t know how tired I was or that I hadn’t eaten or even if he would be repaid, but he didn’t even bat an eye and just acted,” Duncan writes. “We hear so much about what’s wrong with the world. I had to share a little of what is right.”
