Destiny Carreno stopped by a McDonald’s in Chicago, Illinois, after work on Sept. 16 and witnessed an employee cutting up a disabled man’s food and feeding him, Mirror reported.
Carreno snapped a photo of the scene and posted it on Facebook. The image has since gone viral, having garnered more than 237,000 shares.
The cashier's kind gesture hit home for Carreno, whose uncle is also disabled, according to the post. Carreno's post continued:
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....
The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man's meal and helped him eat.
At that point, the tears started to gather in my eyes. My heart was so appreciative for what he did. I couldn't contain my emotions in the crowded restaurant.
This employee, who put everything on hold for this man, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help this handicapped customer out. That was the kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen.
