“It’s okay, ma’am. I got you.” Kind Cashier Buys Meal For Woman Who Forgot Her Wallet

When Andrea Duncan reached the drive-thru window at a McDonalds in Reading, Ohio, she realized that she had forgotten her wallet. Feeling a little embarrassed, she asked the cashier to please cancel her order, but his kind response surprised her.

“This handsome young man is Jeremiah,” Andrea wrote. “Friday was a long day at work, I didn’t get a lunch. After leaving the barn around 9 I stopped by the McDonalds in Reading, OH to grab some dinner. I ordered my food but realized as I got to the window to pay, I had left my wallet at work. I told this young man to cancel my order. His response was, ‘It’s ok ma’am. I got you.'”

The kind young man then took out his own wallet and proceeded to pay for Andrea’s meal.

“He then took his wallet out and paid for my meal. What an amazing young man! We hear so much about what’s wrong with the world, I had to share a little of what is right. I am just now posting this because I wanted his permission and I wanted to repay him for his kindness.”




“I asked him if I could hug him and told him to keep being who he is because he is an amazing person. 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 ❤️ “
