ABILENE, Texas - The Monday evening rush was hectic at the south side Chick-Fil-A, but then something happened – a man donated $1,000 and told employees he wanted to pay for everyone in the drive-thru line behind him.
During that hour employees saw most customers smile, some cry and all of them in shock.
Chick-Fil-A team member Duste Wolf worked Monday night and saw everything.
"One lady actually cried because she had a really tough day," Wolf said. "She had a lot of bad stuff happen to her."
The woman's tears were of joy -- the free meal was a gift to everyone.
When employees asked the man about himself all he said was his name – John. According to employees John said he donated the money in order to make everyone's Monday better.
According to Brian LaCroix, the franchise owner, making Monday a good day is exactly what he did.
"He paid for 88 cars in a little over an hour," LaCroix said. "He pretty much bought everyone's meal in the drive-thru for a little over an hour."
The man handed over 10 $100 bills to pay for the meals at about 7 pm Monday night.
Chick-Fil-A employees have seen customers purchase meals for others but never with this much money. The mysterious man made a lot of people happy.
