Wow, McDonald’s made the list two weeks in a row. Is this McDonald’s employee trying to compete with Chick-fil-a’s in customer service?
Brittany Reed from Waynesville, OH, definitely thought so.
It was one of those days for the mom of three.
After football practice, she had to endure the torture only a parent would know: kids crying and throwing tantrums in the back seat.
For one reason or another, they were all fussing about having potatoes for dinner.
Brittany couldn’t take it anymore, so she decided it was a McDonald’s night.
When she pulled up to the drive-through, she realized she had left her wallet at home. Now she wanted to cry.
When she told the cashier that she had to cancel the order, the guy did something she didn’t expect. He casually swiped his debit card before Brittany could even say anything.
Still stunned by his action, she asked his name. To which he answered Wyatt Jones.
Well, Brittany was grateful to him and promised to pay him back. Despite his refusal, she forced him to accept the money when she came back later that night.
Brittany also couldn’t help but post on Facebook about what McDonald’s employee Wyatt Jones did. The post exploded with thousands of likes and comments.
And you know what’s insane? Brittany opened up a GoFundMe to show her appreciation and to help supplement his McDonald’s employee pay. The donation poured in at $46,000, smashing the tiny goal of $5,000 he needed to get a used car for college.
