You know how there are certain urban legends that spread like wildfire across the internet, and they always feel vaguely familiar?
Sometimes that’s because they are all too real, and we can all relate.
And sometimes they’re just too good to be true.
Recently comedian Nelly Zenani went viral for posting an incredible story on Facebook.
At first it looked like he was doing a turn-the-other-cheek kind of thing, but stick around for the twist ending.
When I got to the last window to get my food, I showed the assistant both my receipts and took her food too!
I paid for it, it’s mine! Now she has to go around again and wait even longer.
She gonna learn today!
Many commenters were not amused by this little stunt. They felt Zenani should have been the bigger person.

But personally, I gotta say, if I’m having an emergency, I’m not stopping at the drive-thru.
For the record, it almost always seems faster just to go inside.
Have you seen the lines at Starbucks and Chick-Fil-A?
Pandemic aside, if you don’t have time to wait, don’t get in line, is all I’m saying.
Whenever funny stories like this one come around, some people immediately want to do them.
Why are you giving me ideas ? now I wanna do this

And a lot of people doubted it was true, but still find it hilarious anyway.
I feel satisfied after reading this ??

Does that mean everybody believed him? Nope. But they didn’t get too deep into it…
There are discrepancies on this statement. But let me not point anything out and mind own business.

Multiple users tagged their friends and agreed they should try it together sometime, which almost makes you wonder if the story keeps going around because different people are actually inspired to try it.
Real or not, the story obviously strikes a chord with people, and there’s usually a grain of truth in things, right?
I’d love to know the origin story of this one.
