Employee Who Served as Human Bench Gets Reward; Lady Gets a New Walker

by -


A hauling company rewarded their employee with a big check after a photo circulated on the internet showing him voluntarily serving as a human bench for an elderly woman who was stuck in an elevator.

The co-Founders of College Hunks Hauling Junk publicly thanked their heroic team member, Cesar Larios during their 9-year Anniversary and Founder’s Day Celebration, saying the company’s new mantra was, ‘What Would Cesar Do.’

CEO Omar Soliman and President Nick Friedman surprised Larios, named HUNK of the Year, with a $2,000 scholarship for his student loans and a $1,500 check toward a honeymoon cruise for he and his wife, who were recently married.

The company also had a big surprise for the frail senior, Rita Young, who needed Cesar’s assistance while stuck in the elevator for 30 minutes. They presented her with a new state-of-the-art walker that has a built-in bench so she will never again be stuck standing without the ability to sit down.

“A lot of people say the younger generation has lost certain values,” said Friedman during a press-conference on Thursday. “But this one small picture shows that chivalry and hard work are still very much alive.”

It is ironic that his notoriety comes from serving as a human bench, because Cesar, a student at the Art Institute of Florida, aspires to one day be a furniture designer.

Founded in 2005 by two college buddies in a beat-up cargo van, the Tampa, Florida moving company now has over 50 franchises and 500 employees nationwide.
