Homeless Man Asks Burger King Worker 'What Can I Get For $0.50?'. The Boy's Response? Wise Beyond His Years

Michelle Resendez / Facebook

Matthew Resendez is a young boy with a huge heart whose act of good will went a long way and provides a perfect illustration of how no good act goes unseen.

Since he was a young boy his mom showed him how to treat everyone with respect no matter the social status of the individuals. He always knows how to provide a helping hand to anybody in need.

Matthew's mother is blessed to raise a boy who does not have any type of prejudice towards those who are different or less privileged.

One day, while Matthew was at work at Burger King, a homeless man went into the restaurant. He was messy and was wearing some scruffy clothes. He had a handful of coins and it was apparent he was hungry.

He didn't beg for mercy but asked the young Matthew what he could afford to buy with the cash he had.

Though Matthew realized those coins weren't enough even to get the cheapest entree the establishment featured, he didn't turn the homeless man away, but alternatively, he did the most incredible thing, he showed sympathy towards someone who was in need of it the most.

Once Matthew shared the experience with his mother, she believed that she had to pass it along so that more folks see how 'karma works.'

This is what Michelle, the mother, wrote:

"Proud mom moment! Matthew worked this evening and a homeless gentlemen walked in the restaurant with .50 cents and asked if there was anything on the menu he could buy. Matthew asked him what he would order if he could and the man said anything would help his hunger pains. So Matthew rung him up for a hearty meal and then used his own debit card to pay for the mans meal. He handed him the receipt and told him to relax and take a seat. The story could end there and It would be a happy ending, but apparently a women watched my son during his random act of kindness. Not only did she write the company to let them know about the caring employee they had working for them, she also rewarded my son with a very generous tip! So proud to be his mom and I can pat myself on the back knowing that I've played a part in raising this big hearted young man."

It's possible that if it was a different staff member they would tell the homeless gentlemen to leave the restaurant without a single thing to eat, however Matthew is certainly not one of those people. He is a very exceptional young man who wants to alter the way homeless and poor folks are cared for and he was rewarded due to that. - Michelle Resendez

Tons of people have heard about the story of Matthew and everyone concludes that what he did restores our faith in humanity and tells us things may turn out much better if more younger people adopt his example.
