Smith said the employee put down what she had and walked over to the table, which is when he had the thought to start recording a video with his phone.
“It was kind of a warm feeling in there anyway because everyone knows everybody,” Smith said. “It threw me so far off-guard when she did it. For me, it was just a blessing to see.”
Smith said he posted the video on Facebook to share what he had witnessed with his friends and family. Since then, nearly 3,000 people have shared it.
“This day and time, when you see that, it gives you hope,” he said. “I’m a Christian, and it’s the closest thing to Jesus I’ve seen in a long time.”
Smith said a family dining beside him noted that the man is a veteran.
He said that he is glad people are seeing the humble action the employee took, adding that we should help one another no matter race or age.
