He Pays Medical Bills For Chick Fil A Worker. Knows He Has To Do More Leaving Mom In TEARS


On the Chick-fil-A About Page is a quote posted by the late owner, S. Truett Cathy. It reads: “We should be about more than just selling chicken. We should be a part of our customers’ lives and the communities in which we serve.”

This quick-service restaurant holds itself to a high standard. It serves great food, and even better, outstanding customer service.

For the most part, Chick-fil-A has a reputation for happy-go-lucky workers who always end their service with “my pleasure.” It puts a smile on your face and makes you want to come back for more chicken.

One customer at a location in McClellanville, South Carolina, couldn’t help but come back after meeting one of Chick-fil-A’s friendliest workers in town. Brian Smyth, the president of a title agency company, had the chance to experience the reality of Cathy’s philosophy.

Smyth became really good friends with Chick-fil-A worker, Shakeel “Shack” Williams, more than a year ago. After their small conversation, Shack held the door open for Smyth and gave him a hug goodbye.

That small embrace has stuck with Smyth to this day. Shack’s excellent customer service is something Smyth says is a “natural humanity that just shines through in everything he does.”

He eventually grew closer to Shack and his family and learned that the young teenage boy had sickle cell anemia. Smyth took it upon himself to financially assist Shack and his mom, Tolunda Williams, with their hospital expenses.

Recently, the Williams family lost their mobile home to a construction demolition. Smyth knew he had to do something special for the teenage boy he cared about so much.

Smyth gathered a volunteer crew of construction workers to build a home for Shack and his family. The new house also came with new appliances.

Tolunda says she’s always taught her son to “[treat] somebody how you want them to treat you,” and now his kindhearted nature has paid off. Local residents that eat at the Chick-fil-A store can attest to Shack being one of the best employees they’ve ever encountered.

Shack’s mother certainly passed on her faith and kind treatment of others. Tolunda expressed, “I thank God first of all, and thank God for my son.”

In a Facebook post by WCBD-TV, one commentator said: “This is so awesome!!!! Love to see his warm spirit each time we go to that Chick Fil A. My kids get excited and calls him My Pleasure each time we go there and he’s there.”

Another comment praised Shack for his work ethic: “Awesome!! We love him too. We are frequenters of that Chick Fil A. He truly is a sweet guy and a hard worker too.”

The day Shack decided to serve Smyth with a smile and positive attitude changed his life forever. As stated on Chick-fil-A’s website: “Everyone’s job at Chick-fil-A is to serve … Whether it’s treating customers like friends, or serving our communities like neighbors, we believe kindness is a higher calling.”

This is the perfect story of how a friendship can form between two strangers when striving for kindness in all you do. Serve selflessly and passionately, and you may just meet someone who wants to return the favor.
