When a Chicago woman stopped by McDonald’s to grab a bite to eat after work, she had no idea what she was about to witness. She caught a cashier in the back corner with a disabled elderly man, who probably thought nobody was looking, but she saw it all and acted immediately.
Destiny Carreno was waiting her turn in line to order her food when the unnamed elderly man, who struggled with a disability, came up to the counter and asked the cashier an unexpected question. The employee paused briefly, confused by what the man was requesting, then suddenly shut down his station and went to the corner where the older gentleman had gone back to sit down.
Destiny watched for a moment, confused by what the cashier was doing, leaving his station in the middle of rush hour in downtown Chicago. She said in a Facebook post on the incident that she had heard the man politely say to the employee at the counter, “Help me please,” but she couldn’t immediately tell what he needed help with. Then, she witnessed what the worker did, and it took her completely by surprise.
The handicapped man, who was at the restaurant by himself, simply needed help cutting and eating his food. Destiny described in her post what happened next, and it had her quickly taking a picture of the moment with tears in her eyes.

I hope I can be that sensitive to a fellow human being’s needs.
I wonder how many people gripped at having to wait a little longer.
Hope McD’s put this in their advertisements.
I pray that good things happen to this young man.
