Lopetties was dining at a local fast food restaurant when an exchange by the counter caught her attention. The manager of the branch was having an unusual conversation with a female customer, so Petty took a snap of the encounter and posted it on Facebook, where it soon went viral. Ahmed Almadon runs a Frenchies chicken restaurant off Richmond Avenue in Houston, Texas. The fast food joint specializes in Louisiana crayol cuisine.
However, it’s the eatery’s fried chicken that tends to pull in the crowds of hungry diners. On Wednesdays, the restaurant runs a weekly special in which customers can get their hands on two pieces of chicken for just a dollar 29. As a result, midweek is always a particularly busy time for Almadoon and his staff. Describing the weekly scenes in February 2018, Almadoon told KHOU eleven, we have our. Special on Wednesday, so usually the place is pretty packed.
With that in mind, the busy manager can probably do without added distractions. Whenever the special is running, however, every so often, a problem comes up worthy of El Madoon’s time. In fact, that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday night in February 2018, and it all began when a woman entered the restaurant with a small child in tow. Although the site was not in itself unusual, for some reason, the pair caught El Madoon’s eye. Revealing what happened next. He explained she stood a line.
When it came to turn, she asked to speak to the manager privately. Agreeing to the lady’s request, Al Madoon stopped what he was doing and went to talk with the woman. However, little did he know that this stranger’s story would leave him heartbroken. Later, he said that the conversation was definitely not something you hear every day. The woman had explained to Alma Dunn that she was caring for her ten grandchildren, including the little girl in her company.
She revealed that she was hungry, as were the kids. However, she said that she didn’t have enough money to buy even one piece of chicken. The woman had approached Al Madhuan with a proposal. Would he be willing to serve her and her family some food on loan? She assured him that she would pay him back the following day when her payments came in. Recalling his encounter with a woman, Al Madhuon said, but for someone to walk.
In and hand me her Social Security card and her driver’s license, and she had a little girl in there, I felt like she was really in need. She was really going through the time. She said she was really embarrassed to make it. After listening to the lady’s story, alma Dunn decided to do something special for her. He agreed to serve the woman and her family a feast free of charge. Explaining his reasoning, the manager simply said.
We all go through tough times. Back in the kitchen, Elma Thun began gathering food for the woman in need. I made her a big box, filled it up with chicken anything I could find, he revealed. I put together a whole lot of small sides, a little bit of everything, some French fries and the kindly manager didn’t stop there. Alma Tune even threw in some desserts for the lady’s grandchildren. Mariah, would you like something sweet? And she said, yeah, I like to get a lemon cake.
What’s more, when Almighty handed the food over, he told a woman she didn’t need to pay the restaurant back. Instead, he assured her that he would cover the bill. That meant that the family could enjoy their feast without having to worry. Understandably, the manager’s generous actions floored the woman. She was so relieved. Al Madhun said she had a smile on her face. She was in awe. She couldn’t believe someone would do that. However, that wasn’t the last of his kind gestures.
Before the lady left to eat with her family, almajun told her she needed never go hungry again. I told her, if you’re ever in that situation again, just come back and see me. We’re here for you, he said. And it seems that Alma dunes touching gesture inspired others in the restaurant, because after the manager had finished serving the lady, two other Good Samaritans stepped in to fill up her car. Low Petty, who was also dining that night, shared Alma Dunn’s caring deed on Facebook, where the manager was rightly praised. In a matter of weeks, the post detailing Al Madhuan’s act of kindness clocked up an impressive 150 reactions and 5400 shares.
Furthermore, it attracted hundreds of comments, many of which gushed over the manager’s commendable actions. One user wrote absolutely beautiful, the entire thing. As long as people like these two are still around, there has to be hope for this world. God bless you all. Meanwhile, another person said, there are some people with hearts in their chests. But to Alma Djon, his was a simple gesture. He just hoped the food took the family’s minds off their troubles for a little while at least. It makes me really happy. She went home with the food, and they all ate. We all need a little help every now and then.
