In this world nowadays, watching the news can sometimes be a depressing experience. With all the happenings, hatred, pain and problems happening, it’s quite easy to become a pessimist about life. But sometimes, the smallest acts of kindness can impact your faith in humanity in a big way. Afterall, there’s this saying, “A simple act of kindness can go a long way.”
Reddit user Galactic_Cannibal recently witnessed one such act of kindness at a Chinese restaurant and shared it to spread some good vibes.
According to the Reddit user, “Was eating my Chinese food when this little Asian woman working behind the counter stopped taking orders to help an elderly man navigate the rainy walk to his seat.”
The waitress stopped with whatever it was that she was doing once she saw an old man having some difficulties getting up the stairs.
In this busy and fast-paced world, rarely do we see people who would go out of their way or stick out of their tight schedules to help someone in need; that is why it is always so heartwarming seeing stories like this one.
“It had recently rained and although it had let up, the street was still wet in slick. She was incredibly patient with him during his slooooow order and even brought his food outside for him.”
The waitress’ simple act of kindness was nothing grand – but that’s what makes it so beautiful and touching. There’s no reason at all that we can’t follow her example, taking off our busy even just for a moment to help someone in need. Trust me, it can go a long way.
