Woman ‘Shocked’ By How Mcdonald's Employee Reacted to Man In Wheelchair Requesting Help

She didn’t expect to see this with her burger and fries.

When Destiny Carreno stopped by a Mcdonald’s in Chicago last week after work she had no idea she was about to be touched by a simple act of kindness. While waiting to order her food, a man in a wheelchair went up to the counter and tried to communicate with the person at the register. It took a few questions, but the cashier was able to figure out that this man needed help to eat his meal. Carreno was truly surprised and moved by what she saw next.

“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,” Carreno shared on her Facebook page. “The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man's meal and helped him eat.”


After being moved to tears, she shared a photo of the kind act along with a heartfelt post on Facebook that has since gone viral because, as Carreno puts it, “Compassion has NOT gone out of style.”

Check out the full post below.

Walmart workers issued a "wake up call" to Alice Walton, an heir to the retailer's $500 billion fortune, in New York on Tuesday by marching to Walton's penthouse and demanding her company pay its 1.5 million workers a living wage and give them reliable, stable work schedules.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
