Homeless McDonald’s Worker Shamed For Sleeping During Shifts Is Offered A New Job & Car

A woman who thought it would be cool to snap a picture of a tired McDonald’s worker and share it to her Facebook, is now apologizing as she lives with regret after learning he was actually homeless.

Georgia woman Luann Cofield posted a picture of homeless father Simon Childs, 21, sleeping in between shifts. She shared his picture on social media ranting that the homeless population was “just another reason for me to leave Fayetteville.” In her post she also claimed that she told another employee that he was sleeping but was told that “it’s ok.” Her post sparked outrage and eventually made her learn that there was a big reason why the worker had been sleeping.

It was revealed that Childs was going through a hard time when the photograph was taken as his mother recently passed away and he was working to provide for his four-month-old baby. Following the viral photo, the community rallied behind him and not only donated a new wardrobe, a free haircut, but they also helped him out with a place to stay and land a job at a construction site. A local restaurateur even loaned Childs an SUV for him to get around in. On Friday, Cofield and Childs met outside the McDonald’s where the original photo was taken and hugged it out. Cofield told Childs,

“I’m sorry, you know? Because you know that horrified me. That breaks my heart for you.”

She also said she learned a valuable lesson from this incident. “I would handle it differently. Maybe talk to somebody, talk to them and see what the situation.”
