We live in a time where many people believe it is every man for himself. However, every now and then, an inspirational story comes along and proves there are still people who care.
Chris Ellis, owner of Ergonomic Solutions Inc., is one of those people. The business owner met Vicki Anderson at a McDonald's drive thru in South Hutchinson, Kansas.
The duo immediately struck a friendship after Anderson played along to Ellis' trucker terms while ordering, westernjournal.com reported.
Ellis saw his favourite McDonald's staff member on a regular basis and he described her as always being friendly and ready to laugh.
The entrepreneur soon learned Anderson was struggling with transportation after her 1994 Oldsmobile died and the cost to repair it exceeded its value.
Anderson asked Ellis if he knew of anyone who was selling cheap second-hand cars. Briefly.co.za learned Ellis knew his son was looking to sell his black Pontiac because he bought a new truck.
So, he made a deal with his son, Josh, who lowered the price of the sedan because it was for a good cause.
On Monday, 7 January, Ellis headed over to McDonald's where he surprised Anderson with the car. A heartwarming video of the surprise has since been shared on social media.
Take a look at the video below:
