I would have done the same thing if I had won that money,paid the tab of the 180 diners, $2,600. The manager of Buddy Friday's Stephanie Reaves said that the lady looked like the one on tv,but said later that the lady wasn't the one who won,but fit the description. My question is"How did the lady pay-by cash or check? I don't think the manager is telling the truth. If the lady paid by check she would have said "We got her check and it's not Gloria Mackenzie. And if the lady paid by cash, she is a very stupid person.

      May this person had done the same thing before but no one thought it was news until after stories about the old lady winning the lottery became news.

      I've saw a person pick up the tab for a family that was a little short on cash at McDonald one time, a gracious thank-you was heard and it was over with, no news story or anything.

        PUBLICITY!!! The best advertisement, is the one that cost you zero money. Not many people have heard of this little diner before all this. Brilliant move by the managers/owners.

          i've been out to plant city, reminds me of the movie The Hills Have Eyes minus the radiation and radiated people.  I believe they have a couple of farms out there as well.

              I wouldn't think she is stupid because someone may very well share her checking information to the world.   If she was with her entourage:), cash was sufficient.

                        I have read somewhere that it was NOT Gloria that did this, but a lady that resembled her.

                            Very nice gesture. How about doing it every day for at least 90 days?.

                            Wow! Really? I guess for some people no matter what you do it's just never enough. Bash

                              Well, because that happens more times than you realize as I've witnessed it too.

                              And paying for someone's meal at McDonald's is a whole lot different than buying meals for an entire restaurant. How often have you heard or seen that happen? A round of drinks, perhaps. Meals? No. $2600 vs $50. HUGE difference.
