An employee at a fast food restaurant in Kentucky became an Internet sensation after he was caught on video (shown below) helping a disabled woman eat her meal.
Ridge Quarles, a worker at a Qdoba Mexican restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, was secretly filmed hand-feeding a disabled woman who asked for help. According to Quarles, the woman was a regular customer who didn’t leave the house often, except to visit the restaurant.
“She always told me, 'Ridge, this is my most favorite place to eat,’" Quarles told local Wave 3 radio station. “Sadly enough she has to sit outside the restaurant until someone notices her or another customer that’s coming in has to let her into the building.
"I had helped her through (the) line and sat her out in the lobby, got her a drink, got her utensils and napkin and kind of started to walk off and I was like, you know, ‘Is there anything else I can help you with?’ and she turned around and she was like, ‘Sir, if you don’t mind could you help me eat?’”
David Jones, the customer who filmed the act of kindness, said he felt compelled to document it to show his friends that “there’s still some good people in the world.”
Quarles said he didn’t think twice about what he was doing. He simply felt it his duty to help the woman out.
“She needs help and if I wasn't going to do it, no one was,” he said.
