Two hundred fifty McDonald's customers played their part in a holiday random act of kindness as one by one, they paid for the meal of the next person in line.
Torie Keene, a Lakeland, Florida resident, told the cashier at McDonald's that she would like to pay for the next person in line. However, there was one condition attached to it — the cashier must wish customers "Merry Christmas" instead of "happy holidays."
Keene's act quickly caught fire. The person next in line was so moved by the kindness and decided to pay for next person as well.
‘It kept going and going. After the 15th car I started tally marking the number of people that were participating on a piece of paper," Figueroa said.
The chain continued for the next 250 people in Figueroa’s six-hour shift. One woman even paid for the meals of three people behind her.
