Glasgow cops touched by kind-hearted gesture at McDonald's drive-thru

By Kaitlin Easton

Police on patrol in Glasgow received a welcome surprise when they stopped to fuel up on some much needed caffeine.

Officers were touched by one man's kind-hearted gesture when he decided to pay for their order.

After going to McDonald's drive-thru in Govan, the police officers had ordered coffees but they when they got the window to pay, they were informed a man ahead of them had picked up the bill.

The token of good will 'made their night'.

One of the officers has worked in the force for 22-years but said he has never encountered anything like that as he thanked the generous lad for his kind gesture.

A post on UK Cop Humour said: "To the lad last night at McDonalds in Govan Glasgow, who being ahead of us in the drive through, paid our bill for our coffees…thank you.

"Honestly made our night. 22 years in the police and never had anything like that. Thank you so much”

Many commented on the post reminding people that is is 'the little kind things' that can often mean the most.

One said: "Its the little kind things, kindness makes the world go round."

Another added: "You deserve so much more for keeping us all safe …. From a very grateful nurse."

While one wrote: "It's the simple things sometimes that can make your day."
