Faith in humanity, restored.

A worker in a Qdoba fast food restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky was caught on video feeding a customer who was unable to feed herself.

Ridge Quarles told WAVE 3, the local NBC station, that the customer was a regular who traveled to the restaurant via a bus used by people with disabilities.

He told the station:

I had helped her through [the] line and sat her out in the lobby, got her a drink, got her utensils and napkin and kind of started to walk off and I was like, "Is there anything else I can help you with?" and she turned around and she was like, "Sir, if you don’t mind could you help me eat?"

The footage was captured several weeks ago by customer David Jones, who had helped the woman to enter the store.

“He didn't stop to think about, 'Well, should I help her, should I not,' he just went over, put the gloves on and started feeding her," Jones told WAVE 3.

Jones said he filmed the moment to show his friends "there's still some good people in the world."

Quarles has since left his job at Qdoba, but he took to social media this week to encourage others to also make a difference.

"Today I had the honor to accept public acknowledgment for helping someone else in need," he wrote on Facebook on Monday. "I'm very glad to have had the opportunity to impact lives around me. Go out and help someone today and pay it forward. Happy day everyone!"
