11月下旬の感謝祭(サンクスギビング)からクリスマスにかけて、アメリカは「The season of giving」を迎えます。プレゼントを贈り合う習慣だけでなく、「世の中のために良いことをしよう」というのがThe season of givingの精神であるとされています。

そんな季節のある朝、フロリダに住むトリエ・キーンさんはふと「誰かの今日をちょっとハッピーにしてあげたいな」と思いつきました。

その時に彼女はマクドナルドのドライブスルーに並んでいたので、「次の車のオーダーのお会計も私が払うわ」と、キャッシャー係のマリサベル・フィゲロアさんに言いました。

 


次の人も同じ行動を


次に並んでいた車の人が受け取る順番になった時、マリサベルさんは「お会計は前の方から頂いています」と告げました。それを聞いて感激したお客さんは、「では私は次の車の分を払う!」と申し出ました。

車で前後に並んだだけ、顔も見えなければ会話することさえない人の親切に、みんなとても感動し、次々と同じ行動をとったそうです。なかには3台分まとめて支払って行った、気前のいい人もいたとのこと。

 


250人も続きました!

その日、マリサベルさんのシフトは9:00から15:00まででした。善意の輪が続いていくことに驚いた彼女は、15台目から集計を始めたそうです。

そして、「次の人の分を先に払ってあげるアクション」は、彼女のシフトが終わるまで途切れることなく、トータル250人に及びました。

感動したのはお客さんばかりではなく、マリサベルさんもそのひとり。自分ひとりの胸に留めておくのはもったいない、とローカルニュース局にこの出来事をレポートし、「12年もマクドナルドに勤めてきましたが、こんなことは初めてでした!」「こんな素敵な出来事に関わることができて光栄です」とコメントしました。

ちょっとした思い付きで最初にアクションを起こした女性、トリエ・キーンさんは報道を目にし、フェイスブックを通じてマリサベルさんにコンタクトしました。「あれは私だったの。そんな風に続けさせようというつもりはなかった、ちょっと誰かの今日一日を明るくしてあげてみようかなと思っただけだったわ」との談。

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
