Earlier this week in Bowling Green, Kentucky, a man walked into a Chick-fil-A wearing shoes so beat up that they were held together only by duct tape. What happened next surprised and warmed the hearts of those attending the restaurant.
As the man was about to leave Chick-fil-A and head back into the December cold, another man, who was there dining on a meal, stopped him. Then he offered him his own shoes. Eyewitnesses told WBKO what happened.
“His shoes were being held together with duct tape,” said Hallie Cassady, whose family eats at Chick-fil-A at least once a week.
“He was about to go back out the door, and the guy just looked at him in the eyes, and he took off his boots and handed them to him,” she said.
“You could tell it made the other guy’s day and it made my day.”
“So I grabbed his (her dad’s) phone and immediately took a picture of the man. I told dad, ‘we gotta share this. This is an amazing story to let people know, and it’s sorta going a little viral here in Bowling Green.”
After Hallie’s father, Kyle, tweeted the picture, it’s now had over 800 likes and 200 retweets. And the numbers keep climbing.
Hallie said that the benevolent customer continued to eat his meal in his socks, and when he was done, he left the restaurant in them, entering into the cold December air.
“There really is still good people in this world if we just look for it. Itas just so kind of the man to do it,” said Hallie.
“The irony behind all this is the values and beliefs of the Chick-fil-A corporation, and this act of kindness taking place here in this store in Bowling Green, Kentucky, she got to see something that you don’t every day,” said Kyle Cassidy, Hallie’s father.
