- Young McDonalds worker humiliated after customer threw drink at her
- The Illawarra’s Jade Murphy saw the act at the Albion Park drive-thru on Saturday
- The 21-year-old then approached the teenage clerk and tipped her $50
A young McDonald’s worker was humiliated after a customer threw a drink at her after she was unhappy with her order – before a couple surprised the teenager with a sizeable tip.
Jade Murphy, 21, said she and her partner witnessed the shocking act at Albion Park Macca’s drive-thru on Saturday night.
Ms Murphy said the young girl went to a parked car to hand her food before a passenger threw a drink at her – and told her to leave her a $50 bill to cheer up the teenager.
“My partner and I were in the drive-through to pick up our food when we saw this poor girl giving drinks and food to a parked car when the driver of the parked car decided to throw a drink at that poor girl Giving drinks looked like between 15 and 17,” she posted.
“Shame on you, the poor girl was just doing her job and it’s definitely not her fault you weren’t happy with your order. But thanks to you for picking on this poor pretty girl, she earned $50 from both my partner and me.”

Ms Murphy, a former KFC worker, said working in fast food “isn’t easy” and is reaching out to the local community in hopes of tracking down the young Maccas worker.
“I hope you see this beautiful girl and I hope you spend the money wisely because you are worth more than having things thrown at you,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Working in fast food isn’t easy, but don’t let anyone make you reconsider your job.”
The Good Samaritan said the girl, who appeared to be between 15 and 17, nearly burst into tears as they approached with the $50 tip.
“Your little angelic face looked like you were about to cry when we gave you the money so I could say you needed it and you deserved it,” Ms. Murphy said.
“What if it was your daughter having something thrown at them, you definitely wouldn’t have liked that and I’m sure this girl’s parents wouldn’t like it if you threw things at their poor daughter.
“YOU GO GIRL, spend the $50 on you because you deserve it.”
The girl’s father responded to the post and thanked Ms Murphy and her boyfriend for the kind gesture.
Ms Murphy said the young girl went to a parked car to deliver her meal at the Albion Park chain before a passenger doused her with a drink on Saturday night
“I want to thank you for your generosity. My daughter was over the moon when you did this. Yes, she had a bad night and we talked about it. But she just wants to do her job and move on, but you made her day,” he commented.
‘Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Like she told you last night that you didn’t have it either. I just wish there were more people in the world who cared more about retail workers, especially the younger generation.”
Other members of the Illawarra community praised Ms Murphy’s actions to support the young hospitality worker.
“A beautiful thing for you both, I hope the young girl is doing well and you made her night a better one, a heart of gold you both have,” replied one woman.
“This is so disgusting and these people should be treated. Poor girl hopes she’s ok and I think your kindness made her feel safe that someone was taking care of her,” commented another.
