An older man walked into Kelley Square Pizza in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was looking unwell as he asked the staff member if there was any food they planned to throw out.
The man, who was trembling in his two coats, offered to pay for the food. He simply could not afford a hot, freshly made meal.
Though unexpected, the man's humble question touched the heart of the restaurant manager.
Running A Restaurant
Running a thriving business is admirable, and the competition is so high in the food industry that becoming successful is almost impossible.
Expenses are often barely covered, and you must have happy stuff if you want to communicate properly with the customers. To keep your staff motivated, you need to have enough money.
Of course, a great manager knows that both customers and employees demand respect, and if word gets out that a manager is mistreating his staff, people will not want to come back to your restaurant.
The Kindhearted Manager
As we said, the older man walked into the diner, as a mechanic named Mike Alexander was in the pizzeria.
He shared what he witnessed online, and his post went viral. Here is what he wrote:
