When a terrified old man entered Kelley Square Pizza in Worcester, Massachusetts, before closing time, his plea for food that would be thrown out was met with kindness, as the restaurant’s management persisted on giving him a freshly-made dinner for free.
Mike Alexander, a Worcester mechanic, was waiting for his pizza when he spotted an older man enter the pizza restaurant. The elderly man’s hands were quivering, he was walking with a cane, and he was dressed in two coats.
“I’m at Kelley Square Pizza waiting for my pizza to cook when this small handicapped elderly guy walks in,” Mike wrote. He’s walking with a cane and wearing two coats. His hands are trembling, and he wonders who is in charge.”
Even though Kelley Square Pizza was closed for the night, the manager behind the counter gave the elderly guy his undivided attention. The quivering elderly guy was definitely hungry, and he was looking for any food that might be thrown away or that he could purchase at a reduced price.
“The man behind the desk responds, telling the other boy to stop cleaning without hesitation” (they close at 130). The elderly man inquires whether there is anything that would be thrown out that he might get for a low price.”
Without hesitation, the sympathetic manager instructs his employee to create this elderly man everything he desires.
“The manager then instructs the child to give this man whatever he wants. I simply want everyone to know that there is still a lot of good in the world, even in these difficult and crazy times when some are out to damage them. There’s a lot of amazing stuff. Begin with yourself. Open a door, buy a coffee, share some food, make a donation, thank a vet, and spend time with the elderly. Anything.”
The manager’s generosity to the hungry old man touched many people online.
“Nothing makes me happier than hearing about people who are kind to others. Thank you very much!” Desiree P. added.
“God bless all of you for your charity in feeding this elderly man who couldn’t purchase himself a warm lunch. It’s a difficult world we live in, with so many people taking notice… You are all blessed with a big heart and a fortunate soul. I honor those on the highest pedestal for your acts of generosity. Thank you; God will repay you all,” Kim J. said.
“A man came into the service department at the dealership where I work and requested for a tool to tighten a battery cable. I told him I couldn’t lend the techs any tools, but I could do it for him. So that’s what we did. He returns a few minutes later and requests to use the phone. Sure, I said.
He sought to contact a man he claimed required some employment. The guy had run out of petrol shortly after leaving and was calling someone to volunteer to work for gas money. He lost his job and his home as a result of missing too much time due to illness, and he was living in his car. I gave him his money for gas and told one of our guys to go get it in a gasoline can.” penned Clif H.
“Yes! All we have to do is open our eyes to see so many genuine acts of human compassion every day. We can all support the many people that are in need!” stated Mary G.“A few days ago, I went to Burger King. It was freezing outside. An old woman walks in, has roughly 60 cents in her pocket, and orders a coffee with the senior discount. The lady appeared unassuming, but her coffee cost 84 cents. I told the cashier to make it a large and give her her change back; the rest is on me. The lady began to cry, thanked me, and begged for a hug, which I gladly gave… While I was waiting for my dinner, the manager arrived with her coffee and some food. “He advised her to sit and enjoy her food and coffee,” Gabrielle P. explained.
