Employees of McDonalds’ fastfood in Brgy. Balibago, Sta. Rosa, Laguna are being praised by the online community after a video showing them throwing a surprise birthday celebration for a young girl went viral.
On her Facebook, branch manager Sharmain Tacluyan shared how they were initially asked by the girl’s mother for a discount as it was her birthday.
Since they could not give discount to them, Tacluyan said they instead decided to throw a simple surprise party for the celebrant.
“Kaya heto na lang ginawa namin..Mabilisang salpak ng HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG na maririnig sa buong store..Mabilisang pump ng balloons..Mabilisang pagdesign ng pancakes pati candles para iblow nung bata,” she wrote.
[“So this is what we did. We quickly set up a birthday song to be played over the whole store. We quickly pumped balloons. We quickly designed pancakes with the candles for the child to blow out.”]
As can be seen in the video, the mother could not help but shed tears of joy when they rolled out the surprise.
Ending her post, Tacluyan said she was happy they could make the customers happy even with just a simple gesture.
“Napakaunexpected lang ng naging reaction ni nanay samin. Heto yung isa sa mga pinakamasarap na feeling ng pagiging isang manager..Simpleng paraan pero alam mong nakapagpasaya ka,” she said.
“We didn’t expect the mother’s reaction. This is one of the best feelings you can get as a manager, to make someone happy with a simple gesture.”
