Couple buy waitress a car to stop her walking 14 miles to work
A waitress has expressed disbelief after a couple she served breakfast to surprised her with a brand new car after hearing about her horrifying commute, according to CNN.
Adrianna Edwards, who hails from Texas, used to walk 14 miles a day on foot to work at a Denny's in Galveston. The entire journey took her five hours.
Now, she will no longer have to make the trek after the customers, who have requested to remain anonymous, gifted her with a white Nissan Sentra.
The pair were sitting in Adrianna's section when they overheard of her long commute, and decided to help out.
After finishing their meal and leaving, they returned a few hours later with a new vehicle.
Speaking to the publication, Adrianna who had been trying to save up for a car of her own, stated that she was shocked by the couple's generosity.
"I have bills to pay. 'I've got to eat. You've got to do what you've got to do," she said, revealing that having a car has cut down her commute to a much more manageable 30 minutes.
At first, however, she thought it was all a joke. "In my head, I was like 'Pranks are cool and everything, but this one seems a tad bit cruel," she continued. "I still feel like I'm dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there's still a car there."
The couple said that they were overjoyed that Adrianna liked her gift, but have said that they don't expect anything in return.
"She teared up, which made me happy that she was so moved by that," the woman said, saying that they only want Adrianna to help someone else in need in the future.
"I know it's Thanksgiving, but I said Merry Christmas and that hopefully someday she'll pay it forward," she continued.
And Adrianna is only happy to do her part: "When I see somebody in need, I'll probably be more likely to help them out (and) to do everything that I can to help them out. I just hope that one day when I'm financially stable enough, I can help somebody else in need," she asserted.
