Chicagoans were certainly inspired by the lesson of this kind lad.
Destiny Carrero was waiting in line to order her meal at a McDonalds when she overheard an old man in a wheelchair ahead of her politely ask his cashier to “please help me.”
After the fast food worker – known only as Kenny – took a few guesses at what the man was requesting help with, Destiny was shocked to see him emerge from the kitchen armed with rubber gloves and start cutting up the food for the elderly customer.
Carrero was even more surprised when the sneaky photo she snapped of the two men tallied over 250,000 shares on Facebook and over 700,000 views since September 16th.
“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,” Destiny mentioned in the Facebook post. “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.”
The franchise owner, Rod Buveznik has said in a statement to NBC that they’re very proud of their young employee who went above and beyond the call of fast food work to help someone in need.
“It’s a true testament to who Kenny is, and a reminder to us all that one seemingly small act of kindness can touch the hearts of so many,” the statement read.
