Take another look at the sentence:

Danielle hated to see her brother Tim walk into the diner where she worked. He always brought his obnoxious friends, payed for his meal with pennies, and then left huge puddles of ketchup at his table.

The second verb, payed, is incorrect. This sentence requires the simple past. Pay is an irregular verb; paid is the correctly spelled form.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
pay pay(s) paid paid

Brought, the verb you chose, is perfectly correct. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
