A homeless man was brought to tears by the merciless behavior of a McDonald's employee who is said to have poured a drink on him next to the drive-through branch at the Rock Retail Park in Birkenhead, Merseyside, England.
The sad incident left the homeless man completely shattered and emotionally stressed out. A woman named Tracy Martinedale found the distraught man and was left furious at his poor condition.
Martinedale ran into the homeless man at about 11 in the morning on Tuesday, September 21. She was shocked to see the man crying and immediately ran to report everything to the duty manager of the fast-food giant.
The 53-year-old Martinedale was left "fuming" at the state the poor and homeless man was brought to by the popular fast-food chain. She expressed her anger in these words:
"You don't do that to another human being, whether they're beggars or not. You just don't."
Martinedale helped calm the helpless man and decided to buy him new clothing from a local charity store. However, the manager of Koala Charity Shop Claughton, Mandy Edwards, refused to charge her anything and gave the clothing free of cost.
Thanks to Martinedale, the homeless man had a new coat, a pair of trousers, a jumper and a top to wear. Edwards also shared that she didn't feel like charging anything, given that the clothes were meant to help a homeless man. She shared her sentiments with the ECHO:
"I said 'No, it's fine to just take them', because that's awful what they did to him (sic)."
So, to help the homeless man in whatever way possible, the charity shop manager donated the clothes for free. She also cringed at the way he had been treated, sharing that it was awful.
The McDonald's employee had indeed hurt the man's sentiments, but what Martinedale and Edwards did for him moved him to tears. He couldn't believe that there were good people out there who could actually do such an act of kindness for him. Edwards also added:
"They're trying to keep their dignity, and then someone throws a thing of Coca Cola all over them (sic)."
But both the women were glad for calming the helpless and distraught man, who had been through an extremely disturbing incident that shook him to the core.
Following the horrible incident, a spokesperson from McDonald's shared their thoughts on the matter. They told the ECHO that the allegation had been brought to their notice, and they are now busy looking into the matter on an urgent basis.
