McDonald’s Refused This Thirsty Homeless Woman Water So This Guy Did Something Awesome
Just goes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover
There’s an unspoken rule every restaurant follows: if a person asks for a cup of free water, then you give it to them. Sure, you’re allowed to refuse the right of service to anyone, but, ever since the Romans, it was understood that water is a universal basic human right.
And while the scumbag CEO of Nestle seems to beg the differ, you’d be hard-pressed to find a human being with a shred of love in their heart that would argue having access to drinking water is something that should be considered to luxury.
Which is why this man was utterly heartbroken when he saw a homeless being denied a simple cup of water at his local McDonald’s.
Jonathon Pengelly hit up Mickey D’s after a night of drinking, as one typically does,right? From the looks of his FB page, he seems to have a sense of humor.
But his page also indicates that the man’s got a big heart as well.
Pengelly watched as McDonald’s employees turned away a homeless woman who was asking for a cup of water. And he was outraged.
“I don’t know what was going through their mind but a lady, clearly homeless was asking for a basic human right; and for a multi billion pound company, for them to say no is disgusting!”
He was reduced to tears at the inhumanity he witnessed and was disgusted that the homeless woman, Polly, was refused a basic human right.
So he invited Polly, along with her friend back to his house, let them use his bathroom to clean up, fed them and gave them some food for the road.
