A Homeless Man Asked What He Could Buy With Fifty Cents At Burger King, Then The Employees Did Something Totally….
Homelessness remains an issue all over the world, no matter how hard we tried to fix this problem.
Even in first-world countries, it’s a prevalent concern and one that will take an awfully long time to fix. Arguably the most important thing to remember is that those people who find themselves living on the streets are still human.
This featured story for today is obviously about a homeless man and a kind teenager. And a Burger king…
A homeless man came into the Burger King where Matthew worked one day, just 50 cents to his name. The man asked Matthew what could be purchased with such a little amount of money.
When Matthew heard the man’s words, he knew he had to do something to help. He asked what the man would order if money wasn’t an object.
The young teen’s mom, Michelle Resendez, posted to Facebook to inform others of her “proud mom moment”, relaying the story of her son’s act of charity.
“The story could end there and It would be a happy ending, but apparently a women (sic) watched my son during his random act of kindness,” Michelle wrote in her post.
“Not only did she write the company to let them know about the caring employee they had working for them, she also rewarded my son with a very generous tip!”
What’s more, the woman in question actually tipped Matthew $100 for his big heart.
“So proud to be his mom and I can pat myself on the back knowing that I’ve played a part in raising this big hearted young man,” Michelle continued.
Seeing Matthew’s joyous face right next to Benjamin Franklin’s is enough to make any service industry employee smile. Anyone who has worked in the restaurant business before definitely understands how good it feels to be recognized for hard work and good service.
She is an excellent mom, and we’re willing to bet her son has a very bright future ahead of him. The commenters on Facebook agreed as well:
“That’s a really good man you have there keep up the work son God will reward you in ways you never thought could happen,” wrote Gary Jones.
“We need more young men like him in our world you are blessed,” another woman chimed in.
