Terri Marshall is usually the one giving out free smiles. That is, until her loyal customers turned the tables on her.
Marshall, a Tim Hortons employee, happily serves McMaster University students in Hamilton, Ont., but she’s no ordinary worker. Not only does she serve everyone with an infectious smile, but with some seriously wild dancing. She’s already a star thanks to a clip of her bustin’ a move going viral last year.
Her cheery spirit and notes on coffee lids have uplifted the most defeated of students (exams, amirite?). But as a gesture of gratitude, her studious customers teamed up to do something special in return: They decided to collect donations and send her on a well-deserved vacation later this year.
After raising over $1,700 for her trip fund, they presented the gift to her in the best way they knew how: with a dance.
Of course, Marshall thought it was just another dance-off and started showing off her stuff — that is, until the “vacation cheque” was revealed, and she began to tear up.
“It’s my husband and my 30th anniversary…and we’re going to go to Myrtle Beach. Thank you,” she said. “Thank you so much. I feel the appreciation all the time with you guys and I’m just overwhelmed and I’m so thankful you made my day.”
Aw! Sometimes you can pay it forward in such simple ways. We love it.
