A father and daughter were stunned after spotting a cheeky note left on their McDonald's receipt.

Emily Timmins, 18, and dad Vinny used the drive through, but since it was so busy, they were asked to come inside the outlet after ordering so they could collect their food.

When Emily and her dad went to the counter to collect their food, Emily said they were asked "sheepishly" by the staff member, "Do you want your receipt?"

Emily said: "They normally write your registration number on your receipt so they know which car to go to."

After asking for the receipt to be handed over, the pair noticed there was no scribbled-down registration number - instead, there was a message which read: "Silver (bald)."

Emily added: "My dad looked at the receipt and laughed. Then he looked up and said, 'You cheeky bugger!' And the man just said. 'They don't make my life easy, do they?!'"

Emily said her dad "couldn't stop laughing" about what happened afterwards.She said: "I was crying laughing and he couldn't stop laughing either."

Following the incident, Emily took to Facebook to share what happened in a status, along with a photo of the receipt and her and her dad together. And the post soon went viral, with people liking and sharing it hundreds of times.

Emily said: "People have been recognising him since it happened."

"He went to an Everton match and the man next to him said his daughter recognised us both off Facebook. We still can't stop laughing now."

It comes after a mum in New Zealand spoke of her upset after seeing a rude note written on her receipt at a local cafe.

Kimberly Sze had been a regular customer at Coffee Supreme in Christchurch, New Zealand - but slammed the establishment as "disrespectful" after seeing an unkind comment added on to her bill.

Kimberly went for breakfast with her then-two-year-old daughter. But when it came to paying, she was outraged after noticing that a cafe employee had called her child "terrifying".

The comment was at the top of the bill and read: "Fam w the terrifying kid". Sharing a photo on Facebook , Kimberly wrote: "My daughter is nothing but polite and friendly and we've never left a mess."

"She's never been a terror, never had a meltdown, never caused any problems and the same people working today always comment on how cute and sweet she is, so what the actual f? [sic]"
