Here's a story to warm even the Grinch-iest of hearts: A generous Southeast Texas woman gave a fast-food drive-thru worker a $10,000 fur coat just for the hell of it. According to Houston's ABC-13, Whataburger employee Cheryl Semien complimented a drive-thru customer on her "beautiful coat," at which point the mysterious woman (known only as "Nadine") handed over the pricey possession right through the drive-thru window. Whatacustomer.
