Want to get on the good side of your girlfriend’s mom? Try giving a stranger the shirt off your back.
That isn’t what Joey Resto meant to do when he helped a cold and hungry homeless man on a New York City subway. The 23-year-old didn’t know someone was recording his act of kindness as he gave up his shirt and hat to keep the man warm.

But Annie Martinez knew right away the good Samaritan in the viral video was the young man dating her daughter.
“I thought, wonderful thing he did, because we have to help others in need,” Martinez told WABC News.
Resto said his decision to help the man “just came naturally.”
Additionally, what no one could hear in the video was Resto offering the man an invitation to come back to his apartment for food and more warm clothes. The man declined, but Resto hopes his act inspires other subway riders to help the once shirtless man and other homeless people seen riding on trains.
