A Chicago man who works at a fast food chain is being praised for this kindness and generosity.
When a disabled man approached the counter in a wheelchair to order food during rush hour, the McDonald’s worker decided to close his register and help the man eat his food.
The worker, who goes by the name Kenny, works at the #McDonald’s restaurant inside Union State. His willingness to help was witnessed by Facebook user Destiny Carrero who captured a picture of Kenny assisting the elderly man.
Carrero said that that ‘Kenny’ went to assist the disabled man prior to him asking: ‘Please help me.’
Ms Carrero took to her Facebook account to share the touching story saying:
“As I waited in line to order at McDonald’s, an elderly handicapped gentleman wheeled himself over to the cashier in front of me. From what I saw, the gentleman may have had a case of quadriplegia, the same medical condition my uncle has.”
‘The man politely tried to ask the cashier something and it took him a few tries before either of us could understand he was saying “Help me please”.
“Neither of us knew what help he needed, and the cashier suggested a few things before he figured out the gentleman needed help cutting and eating his meal.”
‘To be honest, I thought the cashier wasn’t going to help, especially during rush hour in downtown Chicago, but to my shock, he shut down his register and disappeared from view – not to get away from helping him, but to wash his hands and put gloves on!”
‘The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man’s meal and helped him eat.
‘At that point, the tears started to gather in my eyes. My heart was so appreciative for what he did. I couldn’t contain my emotions in the crowded restaurant.”
‘This employee, who put everything on hold for this man, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help this handicapped customer out. That was the kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen.”
McDonald’s has not yet released a statement about their employee’s big heart.
