Employees at a Chick-Fil-A in Abilene, Texas, witnessed an amazing act of random kindness.

On Monday night a man pulled up in the drive thru and gave the cashiers $1000. He said he wanted to pay for other customer's food in line as long as the cash lasted.

He told the cashier he gave the money to that "he wanted to make everyone's Monday better."

According to the cashier the man's $1000 was able to pay for the meals of 88 customers.

Franchise owner Brian LaCroix said customers were shocked by the gesture, and one lady who was "having an awful day" even started crying as a result.

This great act pleasantly surprised many of the customers and obviously made some people's Monday just a little bit better. The man said his name is John, but did not give a last name and his identity still remains a mystery, but his kindness is certainly appreciated.
