My family and I were in the middle of a 6 hour drive back home
Thanks stranger :)
and we were are all a bit confused.
Those were the best fries I have ever eaten from a McDonald's.
and everyone was already in a bad mood.
I know it wasn’t a huge deal
Last weekend I was at a generic McDonald's off of a highway mid-day.
and we split the fries that were left.
a stranger made all of our days better.
"I saw you dropped your fries,
but it really did mean a lot to me and my family.
A few minutes later a guy walks up to us,
a casual looking guy.
We shared a mutual look that said,
My dad mustered a thanks
as we were all in a bit of shock.
and most of our fries fell on the floor.
and made the seemingly unbearable trip home manageable.
"Who knew your faith in humanity would be restored in a McDonald's?".
the bag ripped
The man walked away
He handed my dad a bag with fries in it.
He cleaned them up
figured you could use some more".
I was particularly down
because of some personal stuff that I have going on.
As my dad was getting the food
That guy lifted all of our spirits
Just through a small act of kindness,
