LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A grateful mother’s Facebook post has gone viral after an Arkansas Olive Garden waiter went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed their meal.
Exhausted and hungry, Dallas French says she and her family went to the Little Rock eatery after leaving the Arkansas Children’s Hospital where her 4-month-old daughter, Ellee, had just tested positive for E. coli, according to WPVI.
Once they got to the restaurant, French’s tough day got worse — “I was trying to make a bottle and spilled it all over me and the floor,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “Our waiter (wish I knew his name) watched all that had happened and just had brought our salad and bread sticks.”
Unable to eat until her daughter was fed, French started making another bottle — and then their waiter, Robert Davis, surprised everyone.
Davis said, “Here, let me feed her and you eat,” French remembered. “This melted all of us … he didn’t even know what we had went through that day and showed us love and understanding – not irritated that I had made a mess and my baby was screaming.”
A photo of the touching moment has been shared more than 20,000 times on Facebook:
