Local eatery sees a record amount of customers ‘paying it forward’

It all started with a kind act Thursday morning, at around 7:00, at the local Hardee's on 500 Highway 62 East in Mountain Home. A person purchasing two sausage egg biscuits and a medium drink decided he/she would also pay for the meal of the vehicle behind him.

Local Hardee's manager Kim Phares says that one act turned into the largest amount of people returning the favor and "paying it forward" than she has ever seen. The random act of kindness continued until 10:45 Thursday morning after 85 people had paid for another's meal. Phares recounts "this type of thing happens occasionally, but never to this extent."

She says with all the negative things that can happen in a day, she was amazed and pleasantly surprised how much one good act could have such a positive impact.

She goes on to say she feels happy and blessed to know there are still good people in the world, especially across the Twin Lakes Area.
