A McDonald's run could have been ruined by a spider, but a drive thru worker saved the day.

The good news is that she has support from a broom-wielding employee who isn't about to let an arachnid ruin her customer's drive thru experience. She bats that insect away without a moment's hesitation, and now, the TikToker can roll down her window and enjoy her McDonald's craving. She's a hero!

Commenters are instant fans of the McDonald's drive thru worker who faced off against the spider — and even donate to her cause!

TikTok instantly fell in love with a fast food worker who goes above and beyond. In fact, it seems to be the week for caring restaurant employees to have their stories told online.

We also "met" a group of WhataBurger employees who did their thing to make sure a customer got back the phone she left behind after her meal.

This time, people were convinced this McDonald's employee deserved a big tip and a raise. But as someone joked about seeing the tight-lipped worker come at the car with a broom, "The person behind you is about to be the best behaved they've ever been at the drive thru."

The creator took suggestions that she ought to tip the McDonald's worker in a big way to the next level. She actually created a GoFundMe for the employee!

At time of writing, the account had only raised $35 toward its $1,000 goal. But hopefully as awareness around this brave act of spider removal grows, so too will the donations for the worker who went above and beyond.

"This woman with true bravery helped me get a spider from my car window," Alexis elaborated about her scare caught on TikTok. "Without her, I actually would've passed away from a panic attack."

"This woman deserves a raise, and a bonus," she further stated, adding about her plans for the funds raised, "I will go to McDonald's and find out the next time she works so I can give her the money. She was a real one for taking on that hefty spider."

Here's hoping the worker gets a bonus as big as that spider real soon!
