A little bit of kindness goes a long way. Imagine if everyone just showed one other person a day that little bit of kindness, what a wonderful world we would love in.
Regina Thomason was sitting enjoying a meal with her brother Dwayne Roach at their local IHOP restaurant in Abilene, Texas. She had just taken Dwayne, who has Down syndrome, to a doctor’s appointment and they were enjoying some fun time together chatting.
Dwayne had told his server Millie Young that his name was Captain America; Millie said nothing of it and took their order but little did Dwayne and his sister know that making sure they got their food wasn’t all she was working on behind the scenes.
50-year-old Dwayne was admiring Millie’s name tag. His sister Regina explained on Facebook how much he loved badges and name tags.
She wrote: “He told the waitress that he liked her name tag and then told her that his name is Captain America.”
The waitress chatted, then took their order and returned to the back. She could have left it there and just carried on with her job but she decided she wanted to do something special for this Captain America fan.
The siblings had just finished eating and were about to leave the restaurant when Millie approached their table with something for Dwayne.
It was a Captain America name tag!
Then she reached over and pinned it onto Dwayne’s shirt.
Dwayne, of course, was thrilled and his sister posted pictures of the wonderful experience on social media, saying the server had made their day!
The thoughtful server told TV station News4 that she always tries to make her guests happy.
“When people come in, I want to make them smile. If they leave happy, it makes me happy,” she said. “When he (Dwayne) left, I said, ‘Bye, Captain America!’ and he just giggled. It made me feel good.”
Yesterday – after a Dr.’s appointment – we went to IHOP in Abilene. My brother Dwayne – who is “special needs”…
This may seem like such a small gesture but for Dwayne it meant the world.
This is the kind of thing that can make your own day.. But really makes the other person feel very special. Small gesture made his day unforgettable! Awesome waitress.
Please share to pay tribute to the wonderful Millie!
