A fast food’s cashier in Chicago leaves his cash register to go to a disabled man’s table, what he will do next will melt your heart.
Hungry and determined, the elderly man wheeled himself over to the counter and asked, “Help me, please.”
Destiny Carreno, a customer standing in line behind him, stared at the young man behind the register, waiting for his response.
To her surprise, the cashier named “Kenny” shut down his register, put on gloves and walked out of the kitchen and toward the man. He sat down and quickly began cutting the man’s meal and helped him eat.
Carreno then shared what she saw at Facebook:
“As I waited in line to order, an elderly handicapped gentleman wheeled himself over to the cashier in front of me,” she wrote on Facebook.
“From what I perceived, 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.”
Carreno described it as “the kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen”.
The Facebook post was shared by more than 410,000 people and dozens praised the man for his gesture.
