With McDonald's recently re-opening a number of their drive-thrus(汽车餐厅) for takeaway, people all over have been queuing for a Big Mac, fries, some McNuggets and a McFlurry. And while many fans of the fast food chain were happy to just be able to get some food, the wait during lockdown seems to have made others a little more impatient.
Over the weekend a woman took to social media to share an awkward experience she had at her local McDonald's when the drive-thru opened once again. The woman, from Canberra, Australia, explained how she'd been placing her order when a young lady behind her began honking her horn to get her to hurry up. Finding this behaviour rather rude, the woman made a plan to teach the other driver a lesson. She revealed all in a post on the Canberra Notice Board group on Facebook. Her post quickly went viral, dividing people on social media, with some finding the woman's actions "cruel" but others branding the whole thing "brilliant".
It read, "I was in a long McDonald's drive-thru this morning and the young lady behind me honked her horn because I was taking too long to place my order. I thought to myself, 'take the high road'. So when I paid for my food at the first window, I paid for both our orders. The man at the counter must have told her what I'd done as she leaned out the window, waved and mouthed 'thank you', obviously embarrassed I had repaid her rudeness with kindness."
But here comes the real kicker. She added, "So when I got to the second window, I showed both receipts and took her food too. Now she has to go back to the end of the queue and start all over again."
