Web Catch: Qdoba employee's act of kindness goes viral


A Qdoba employee in Kentucky made a simple gesture in the spirit of kindness. Ridge Quarles, who works at the Mexican restaurant chain, noticed a customer struggling to eat her food.

He says the unidentified woman, who is in a wheelchair, has been something of a regular in the five and a half years he has worked there.

"She didn't get to get out of her house very often, but whenever she did, she always told me, 'Ridge, this is my most favorite place to eat,'" Quarles tells WAVE 3 News.

Quarles had helped the customer through the line, made sure she had her drink and her utensils and asked a final question. "Is there anything else I can help you with?"

The woman's response, according to Quarles: "Sir, if you don't mind, could you help me eat?"

Dr. David Jones was dining close by and overheard the exchange. He noted Quarles' quick willingness to help, and felt compelled to capture the moment on camera.

"It seems to me that if everybody in the world would just use the little simple gift that they have to maybe benefit somebody else, think what the world would be like."
