I was in a long McDonald’s drive-through this morning and the young lady behind me leaned on her horn because I was taking too long to place my order.

“Take the high road,” I thought to myself. So when I got to the first
window I paid for her order along with my own.

The cashier must have told her what I’d done, because as we moved up she leaned out her window and waved to me and mouthed, “thank you,” obviously embarrassed that I had repaid her rudeness with a kindness.

When I got to the second window I showed them both receipts and took her food, too.

Now she has to go back to the end of the line start all over.

Don’t honk your horn at old people.

  1. I love it! Until I retired I worked for a bank. My early years in banking I was a tell for a while. I worked the drive up windows. A young girl, at the urging of her boyfriend weaved around cars through a narrow drive entrance. They cut cars off and butted in line ahead of cars, during an extremely busy time. I saw it. A lady in the window in front of me asked what I was going to do about that. The young couple had sneaked in in one of the terminal lanes. They turned the speaker on and said their $30 dollar check cashed. When I got the tube I cashed the check. I gave it to them in one dollar bills. Only because I didn’t have enough in coins. When they got their cash they began screaming at me. I motioned for them to leave, and told them never to come through the drive up again. The guy went into the front door of the bank and asked for the manager. He asked her if we didn’t have any twenties and tens and complained about my rudeness. The manager came back to speak to me……..when I explained and the customers backed me up and complained about the two morons, she just turned around and went back to her office. The lady at my window who wanted to know what I was going to do about it…told me I had made her day! You did the right thing………quick thinking. These brats need to be taught some manners, they obviously don’t get it at home.
