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.”

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
