This McDonald’s worker suddenly stopped working – his reason may surprise you

Joseph McCormick September 25, 2015

When this McDonald’s worker suddenly walked away from his till, he probably didn’t think a photo of him would be shared hundreds of thousands of times.

Destiny Carreno posted a photo of the random act of kindness by the Chicago McDonald’s worker named Kenny Soriano-Garcia.

The cashier shut down his till and walked calmly over to a disabled man who was struggling to eat his meal.

Sitting down with him, Kenny helped the man cut up his food and eat it more easily.

“The man politely tried to ask the cashier something and it took him a few tries before either of us could understand he was saying ‘Help me please,'” said Carreno.

“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.”

Carreno, who said the restaurant was packed when Kenny decided to shut down his till, praised him for his kindness in a Facebook post.

The post was subsequently shared over 300k times, and said Carreno thought it was the “kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen.”

Soriano-Garcia has since been honoured with an award by McDonald’s for his exceptional service.
