I feel like it’s been a while since we had a good old fashioned ‘Tom Hanks seems like a real nice fella’ story. Sure, we’re always cognisant of the fact that Tom Hanks appears to be, by all accounts, a real swell guy, but it’s nice to be reminded every now and then.
This will do: on Friday, Hanks strolled into an In-N-Out Burger joint in Fontana, California, and proceeded to buy lunch for everyone, including the customers waiting the drive thru.
In a way, isn’t life just the time we spend waiting around in fast food joints for Tom Hanks to stroll in and buy us a burger? Such is the burden of mankind.
“Tom signed In-N-Out hats and took pictures with everyone,” one of the people present told E! News. “He was genuinely nice, laughing, talking with everyone and taking selfies. He wished us a Merry Christmas on his way out.”
Look who visited Fontana In N Out! Woody himself, Tom Hanks, and he bought lunch for everyone! Nice! pic.twitter.com/LcNGr9S7X0
