"This employee, who put everything on hold for this man, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help this customer out."

Destiny Carreno was in line at a Chicago-area McDonald's last week, when she saw an elderly man in a wheelchair go up to the cashier and attempted to ask for help. Carreno said in a Facebook post that she thinks the man may be a quadriplegic; her uncle has the same condition.

Carreno said that she thought the employee wouldn't be able to help, because the restaurant was packed. But  the employee known as Kenny shut down his register, washed his hands and helped the man cut his food.

"That was the kindest and most humble thing I've ever seen."

His gesture did not go unnoticed by his employer, either. He was honored during an award presentation on Monday, and the owner of that particular McDonald's franchise released this statement to the Huffington Post:

"We are very proud of Kenny, and overwhelmed by the positive response he has received for his compassion and kindness. It’s a true testament to who Kenny is, and a reminder to us all that one seemingly small act of kindness can touch the hearts of so many."

Heart = melted. Thank goodness for kindness.
