Customer Gives Fast Food Worker $10,000 Mink Coat

We're not even sure what to call this -- maybe a massive tip? A fast food worker complimented a customer's mink coat as she went through the drive-thru. Then, that customer handed her the coat right through the window!

"She was a perfect stranger. I didn't know this lady from nobody. I ain't never seen her come through my drive-thru window," Semien told KTRK.

"She was so sweet, so I just took it off and handed it to her through the drive-thru window," the Good Samaritan said.

That gift should keep Liberty, Texas, Whataburger employee Cheryl Semien warm through the winter. It's a real fur coat worth about $10,000!

The story of kindness has gone national. Semien told ABC she almost passed out. It even happened on her birthday.

"It was such a nice gesture, and I'm sure that was probably the best money she could have spent, making someone else's day," host Amy Robach said.

The woman who gave away the coat was initially reluctant to speak with KTRK. When she finally agreed, she didn't want her last name used. Known only as Nadine, she told the station she likes to do fun things that make her happy. As for Semien, she says she can't wait to pair up her new coat with some boots.
