Paying It Forward

Paying it forward is the good deed that’s taking the fast-food drive-throughs of the world by storm, and one local gentleman has been recognised for doing it regularly.

Kat Simonsen recently posted in a local “Mums and Bubs” Facebook group after visiting the Red Rooster Mount Pleasant drive through where her purchase of $33 had been paid for by the driver in front.

Ms Simonsen shared details of the car, hoping to find its owner and share her appreciation.

“Would appreciate anyone who knows him or where he may work so I can thank him,” she wrote.

“Such a nice gesture.”

While the gentleman in question was later confirmed to not be a Facebook user and, indeed, not be a member of said “Mums and Bubs” group, his mother certainly was.

“This is my son, and he does this on a regular basis,” Kristy Saron commented.

“He has a beautiful heart and soul.

“Unfortunately, he is not on Facebook, but I can pass this on.

“I’m glad you got to experience a time of my son paying it forward.

“He will love to hear this.”
