IHOP Employee Becomes Everyday Hero After Assisting This Woman With Her Mea

There are some genuinely nice people on this plant, and 43-year-old Joe Thomas has proven he is one of them. This amazing and hardworking HOP employee offered to help feed a disabled woman because he wanted her husband to enjoy his meal while it was still warm.

The IHOP employee from Springfield, Illinois is being called as a hero. Thomas did not help the woman for fame or money, he did it because is a generous and kind man.

It seems that another customer, Keisha Dotson, witnessed the act of kindness and took a pic of the IHOP server.

Dotson was so impressed by Thomas that she posted the pic of the server assisting the disabled customer to eat on the IHOP Facebook page. The post instantly went viral, and now almost everybody is calling Joe Thomas a hero.

Dotson noted in her post that Thomas’s actions restored her faith in humanity:

“Today while visiting your Springfield, IL location on Dirksen, I witnessed a very touching moment involving one of your servers. A man and disabled woman were dining and your server sat down with them and proceeded to help feed the disabled woman while her companion enjoyed his food. My faith in humanity has been restored a little today.”

Thomas has shrugged off all the attention, saying his parents raised him right. He says he was just doing something nice for a regular customer and he didn’t care who was watching.

“I just love helping people,” he explained in an interview with a Springfield TV station. “Every Saturday they’ll come in and they don’t even need menus or anything. I know exactly what they want. My mother and father always told me to treat everybody as equals, no matter what race, creed, color, whatever. Treat everybody equal.”

Joe said he just wanted to make the woman with Huntington’s disease life a bit easier, and help relieve her husband’s burden of caring for her.
“I always see him stop eating to feed her and I was like ‘heck if I’m not doing anything why don’t I go feed her so he can eat and everyone can be happy?’” Thomas explained.

He continued to say he wanted the husband to eat his food while it was hot, so he just went ahead and cut up the woman’s eggs and began to feed her.

“I didn’t really offer. I just started doing it,” Thomas said. “I told the gentleman ‘Sit down, eat your food. I got her.’”
