This moving picture captures the moment a McDonald’s employee patiently fed a burger to a disabled customer.
On the outside it looks like a simple act of kindness, but the image has gone viral and has melted the hearts of thousands of people who viewed the image on Facebook.
The kind-hearted lad works at the fast food branch in Chaozhou Town, Pingtung County and the photo of him was captured by a customer around 11pm on March 2nd, Apple Daily reports.
On March 9th, Li Ting shared her photo and it has since been liked almost 30,000 times.
The caption reads:
People like this in society are running out. The other day I went to McDonald’s with a friend to have a midnight snack, we saw this scene and were very touched. Not because of his actions and the exclusion of inconvenience to him. Instead, he was very loving towards that person and patient when he helped him to bite the burger. Thank you for helping him to eat a full meal so he can continue with his life.
It’s believed the worker is a 19-year-old university student at Meiho University, known only as He and has worked for McDonald’s for the past two years.
The company confirmed they will be awarding the young employee for his kind act and who can blame them.
This isn’t the first time an image has touched the hearts of millions online either. In December last year, passengers on a Hainan Airlines flight from Zhengzhou to Hainan in China were touched when they noticed a flight attendant feeding a man with disabilities, bringing him to tears.
Stories like this restore your faith in humanity, just ever so slightly.
