Dallas French, from Dover, Arkansas was driving back from a day at the Children’s Hospital with her four-month-old daughter, Ellee, and wanted to stop and eat. But when Ellee started screaming, Dallas experienced something in the restaurant that she just had to share on Facebook:
“I forgot to post this Thursday after all that had happened that day. I was really out of it (and probably the lack of sleep this past month) but we went to Olive Garden in Little Rock after Ellee’s tests at Children’s hospital. She was starving and I was trying to make a bottle and spilled it all over me and the floor and made another bottle and our waiter (wish I knew his name) watched all that had happened and just had brought our salad and bread sticks and said, ‘Here, let me feed her and you eat.’ This melted all of us and this is what we need more of!
He fed her, I ate my salad and bread sticks, and that milk on the floor got cleaned up after we left because he just understood! He didn’t even know what we had went through that day and showed us love and understanding—not irritated that I had made a mess and my baby was screaming. Gosh, I wish I would have gotten his name because he deserves the recognition!”
Some helpful commenters helped uncover the name of the waiter, Rob Davis. Small actions like helping tired parents have a better dining experience are the things that make a difference in this world. We need more people like this young man!
