What a wonderful thing to see so early in the year: true Ubuntu in its purest form. A waiter took it onto himself to bring a homeless man out of the rain and offer him a meal and drink without anyone asking him to do so.
Kind people with generous hearts are everywhere, but they are difficult to spot when we're complaining about all the bad things happening in our country.
But thanks to social media, more stories are shared of selfless Ubuntu; and it's warming our hearts.
Riëtte Meets told her story of how a waiter took care of a homeless man, and it left social media users feeling all warm and fuzzy.
She didn't name the waiter but wanted him to know that he is an example to all South Africans.
Riëtte said a homeless man was sitting outside in the rain and she was about to try and get him a meal when one of the waiters at the Burger Box restaurant she was at decided to do so first.
Here's what happened, in her own words:
I would really like to share my wonderful experience we had last night at the Burger Box Casbah/Roadhouse @ Great North Road!!!
We usually go there for take aways but decided last night to go in and eat inside.
There came a (white) homeless guy and sit there in the pouring rain.I told to my husband I’m going to stand up and tell the waiter to please give him something to eat.
We will pay for it. Before I could get up there came a (black) waiter to him and told him to please come out of the rain and come have a seat and he told him that he will bring him a burger and a cooldrink!!!The waiter really treated him with so much respect!
As he sat there and wait for his food he took out a journal book wrote something in there and wait for his food the waiter did bring it for him a few minutes after and he was enjoying his meal so much!!!
Being kind to someone is NOT about the race or skin color!!!
With all the racist posts in the media I really enjoyed eating there last night!This made our hearts so happy and is proof that we all are human no matter what race!!!
Who ever this waiter was @ Casbah Benoni,Great North you are a example for all of us!!!
