A McDonald’s worker shuts down register to help disabled man eat


A McDonald’s worker shuts down register during rush hour to help a disabled man eat his food.

The cashier, known only as Kenny, stopped serving and put his gloves on to help the man cut up his food.

Customer Destiny Carreno, who was in the Chicago fast food outlet at the time, later posted the act of kindness on Facebook.

She wrote: “Seeing this today brought tears to my eyes. Compassion has NOT gone out of style.”



Explaining what happened, Destiny said: “The man politely tried to ask the cashier something and it took us a few tries before either of us could understand he was saying ‘help me please’.

“Neither of us knew what help he needed and the cashier suggested a few things before he figured out the gentleman needed help cutting and eating his meal.

“To be honest, I thought the cashier wasn’t going to help, especially during rush hour in Chicago, but to my shock, he shut down his register and disappeared from view.

“Not to get away from helping him, but to wash his hands and put his gloves on! He came out the kitchen, sat down and began cutting the man’s meal and helped him eat.”

Destiny said the cashier went “above and beyond” to help the man out in what she called the “kindest and most humble thing I have ever seen”.

After sharing a snap of the touching moment on her Facebook it has since been shared more than 340,000 times.

McDonald’s later identified the cashier as Kenny Soriano-Garcia.

The fast food chain’s Owner and Operator Rod Lubeznik said: “We are very proud of Kenny, and overwhelmed by the positive response he has received for his compassion and kindness.

“It’s a true testament to who Kenny is, and a reminder to us all that one seemingly small act of kindness can touch the hearts of so many.”

No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted… #ShareToInspireHumanity
