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.

Which restaurants take checks any more? Aren't we out of the 1950's?

And why would it be stupid to pay with cash, especially if she wanted to keep her identity private and this neither a tax write off nor tax deductible? Considering that not too long ago it was found out that there was a credit card ring that used restaurant waiters to steal credit card info and charge up accounts, what exactly is "very stupid" about paying a bill in cash? This I want to hear. Who knew all these years of paying a bill in cash made me an idiot.

    Some people take "doing the right thing" to the point of doing the wrong thing. She was purposely taken advantage of by an unscrupulous old woman, and I'm sure that Mindy's family will never let her forget it.

    Right, because it was the fault of the 84 year old, half blind old woman that Mindy not only left a huge space in the line but was turned around and not paying attention. And it was also this old woman's fault that Mindy insisted she stay and go ahead with her transaction. Perhaps we should say, when you go in a line, you not only keep up with it, but you pay attention to it and you won't lose out on money. Even though, she would ot have won anyway.

    Well, maybe it was a very good thing Gloria won. Because God knows Mindy wouldn't have given away free meals to everyone without calling the 6 o'clock news first so we could all bask in her generosity and selflessness.

      Amen.  I agree! Mindy is a big whiner.

        She's so generous to do that. I wonder what stimulates her to treat the people with free meal. If she's indeed the lottery winner $2600 is nothing to her. However if I'm in her shoes I'd do other things with that money.
