Woman Kindly Buys Meal For A ‘Homeless Man’ At McDonald’s Only, Uh, He Was Just A Regular Customer
Listen, we’re all for helping out those in need. So this woman who thought she was buying a meal for a man who looked down on his luck is okay in our book. She just made a hilarious mistake and now pretty much half the world knows about it.
Reports the Daily Mail…
A mum-of-two was left ‘mortified’ when she bought a ‘homeless’ man gorging on tomato sauce a meal in McDonald’s – only to find out it was a hungry customer waiting for his order.
Claire Varin, 33, was in McDonald’s in Halifax town centre when she saw an unshaven man with a rucksack sat on a nearby table with no food.
After spotting him eating ketchup directly from the sauce dispenser, Claire feared he was homeless and hungry.
However her ‘random act of kindness’ backfired after she placed the meal down in front of him – as a member of staff brought over another meal and apologised to him for the wait.
That would be the point at which this happened…
“I was mortified. I felt like I was going to die of embarrassment. I wanted a hole to open up underneath me.
‘I didn’t stick around to see if he ate the food I bought him too, I just ran out of the shop as quickly as I could.
‘God knows what he thought. He probably tells people about the time a crazy woman bought him a breakfast for no reason.”
Thus proving once again that no good deed ever goes unpunished.
As for the man, hell, since he was so hungry was literally gulping down ketchup while he waited he was probably thrilled to score a second meal free of charge.
Good job, Claire!
