Carrie Chisholm pulled up to a drive-through window at Chick-Fil-A when she started to panic. The manager got involved and it wasn’t until later that the true consequences came out.
In a Facebook post, Carrie reveals what happened:
“I wanted to thank the team that was working last night when I came through the drive through with my three year old and horrifyingly I could not find my wallet. The woman working the window at this time turned and asked a manager quietly and turned and respectfully told me they made the decision to let us have the meal for free.
What they did not know was that we had just been at the hospital for many hours after having to ride emergency to the hospital in the ambulance because he was so sick. Our son has a congenital heart defect called hypo plastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and we were oh so scared for his life yesterday. He is feeling much better today.
The workers at this location should get awarded for their professional compassion. They don’t know how much I needed that small act of kindness last night. Having a son with half of a heart is a tough life yet full of many blessings. Thanks for being a blessing to us last night!”
When you’re having a bad day, even the smallest snag can tip you over the edge. On the other side, a surprising act of kindness can make all the difference in the world.
Since Carrie’s posting, her story has gone viral and shared thousands of times. We can definitely see why! Great job to this team at Chick-Fil-A for making a huge difference with a small act of kindness!
