See why can’t this EVER happen to me? I always hear of this happening but never to anyone I know. Over the weekend, workers at various stores and fast food restaurants were surprised by a man handing out $100 bills. The man hasn’t been identified but stopped into stores like Tropical Smoothie Café, Supercuts, Five Guys, and Jersey Mikes at South Coast Marketplace.

“We were just standing there staring at him and then he was like, ‘Yeah, you guys deserve this for your hard work’,” said Dhaha Almaliki, an employee at Wendy’s and high school senior.

The man even handed out money to customers inside the stores.

The man did not accept any products or goods in return for the money.
