McDonald worker has been secretly paying for customer meals at branch for months
A McDonald’s worker has secretly been performing acts of kindness for months before being discovered.
Enya Vegenere, 19, left rapper Enya Vegenere, 19, surprised when she paid for his food with her own bank card at a drive-thru.
The young student has worked at McDonald’s in Coventry, West Midlands, since January and has been paying for customer’s meals for weeks.
The young woman earns £7.25 per hour but has spent over £50 on random acts of kindness.
She pays for a coffee here and there or a burger when she thinks people would appreciate it.

Enya said: “I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve done it.
“I don’t do it for rude customers – just the people who are polite to me.
“My motto is ‘takers eat better but givers sleep better’. I don’t do it for recognition – I just think it’s nice to do nice things for people.
“You never know what someone is going through and what a kind gesture could do.”
In the clip, Joshua filmed the young woman paying for his meal with her bank card after he called his mum to ask if she wanted him to order her something.
The audio can be heard, and Joshua said: “Yeah because you called your mum and asked if she wants anything from McDonald’s.”
The lad didn’t expect the free meal and added: “Proper cheered me up after having a depressing day with the fact I’m at high risk of redundancy."
Enya shared her reason for buying the bloke’s meal with The Sun.
She said: “I thought it was cute that he called his mum – not everyone is that considerate of their parents.
“I thought why not reward his thoughtfulness – it was only £4, a hot chocolate and a couple of burgers.
“He was made up and he got in touch later to say thank you. He said it made his week, but it was really nothing, I didn’t want any recognition or praise.”

Enya continued: “Some people do kind things with the expectation that they will get something back in return but that’s not the right way to do it.
“You shouldn’t expect something back.”
Enya’s colleagues were unaware of her kind acts, but always go out of their way for diners.
The young woman said: “It’s probably the kindest McDonald’s in the country.
"We’re such a good team and everyone goes above and beyond. It’s a great place to work.”
Joshua, who works under the name Josh-U-R, is hoping to pay the act of kindness forwards.
He said: “Enya’s a credit to her family.
“She made my week and put a smile on my face.
“I spoke to the manager of the McDonald’s on Twitter and tried to get her an extra day’s holiday but I don’t think it worked.”
He added: “But I paid it forward in Greggs yesterday by buying a meal for the person in front of me.
“They also were thankful and said they would pay it forward.”
