167 Consecutive Pay It Forwards at This Drivethru
Last Father’s Day, a regular customer at a Scottsburg, Indiana McDonald’s started a 167-driver “pay it forward” chain of kindness the drive-thru window.
“She saw a dad in the van behind her. He had like four kids in the car,” McDonald’s cashier Hunter Hostetler said. “She was like, ‘I’m going to pay for the father behind me, and I want you to tell him happy Father’s Day.’”
“I saw the man in front of me talking to the cashier out in the rain, and I was wondering what was going on,” said guest 105 on how he came to know about the acts of kindness.
All total, 167 drivers “paid it forward” at the McDonald’s that night. Many customers even paid for meals that were more expensive than their own.
The chain lasted until closing… at midnight!
