Posiive Pants Story: Chick-fil-A Worker Feeds Disabled Customer


Every morning at 6:30 and 9:20, we read a Positive Pants story. They're stories that the regular news doesn't give you: good people doing great things for others. Here's one.

They go above and beyond at Chick-fil-A with customer service. But this wonderful act goes beyond even their job descriptions.

Ashley Gusman, an employee at the Chick-fil-A in the Palermo Mall food court, saw one of her regular customers come in for his regular mid-day meal. Arturo Ramirez, a disabled customer came in to eat.

She told local tv KIII-TV about her decision to help Ramirez.

“Usually, we help him around and get his food,” she told the outlet, “but that day I helped him. I got him his food and I went around and I sat with him.”

That's when other diners took notice and snapped a pic and posted it on Facebook. It went viral. For good reason.

One post said:

“I’ve seen this man several times here by himself,” Jessica Gomez wrote in a now-viral Facebook post. “The times I’ve been here everyone just leaves him. She cut his food into pieces and went back several times to get him whatever he needed. May God bless this woman.”

Ashley doesn't plan on working at Chick-fil-A forever. She told Yahoo news she plans on getting further schooling so she can care for the elderly.

“It makes me feel good that I can have a connection with somebody and make their day a little bit better, or give them some positivity,” she said, “because you don’t know what people are going through.”
