This Disabled Woman Came to a Restaurant to Eat ,But What A Worker Did Will Leave You in Tears!

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own problems, we forget to be thankful for what we’ve got. There are people around us that are less fortunate. Some of us try to ignore them, but others try to help. Ridge Quarles, who works at a Qdoba in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of those people that could teach us a lesson or two about kindness. The woman from this video doesn’t get out of the house very often, due to her disability. When she can, she comes to this Qdoba restaurant. She never asks for help, just waits outside until someone notices her and offers assistance. Ridge Quarles got to know her better. One day he did a little more than his duties include, but it made a big impact.



Disability happens more often than you imagine. Over 1 in 4 of today’s 20 year-olds will become disabled before they retire. Currently around 10% of the total world’s population, or roughly 650 million people, live with a disability. 12 million of them need assistance with every day tasks. There are about 37 million Americans that are classified as disabled; about 12% of the total population. More than 50% of them are in their working years, from 18-64. Medical problems contribute to 62% of all personal bankruptcies filed in the U.S. Are you prepared for the case if disability happens to you? 48% of U.S. families are not. 68% of adults in the US have no savings for emergencies. Speaking of retirement savings, one-third has none. 65% of working Americans admit they couldn’t cover normal living expenses even for 1 year if they lost their employment income; 38% wouldn’t be able to pay their bills for more than 3 months. Live your life to the fullest, help others, and don’t forget to save some money for a rainy day.
