A random act of kindness is inspiring people on social media who are passing around video of a restaurant employee helping a woman in a wheelchair eat her burrito.
The story comes from NBC affiliate WAVE 3 in Louisville, Ky.
Several weeks ago Ridge Quarles, an employee of a local Qdoba Mexican Grill, helped one of the restaurant’s regular customers, a woman in a wheelchair, get her order.
He helped her settle at a table, got her a drink, utensils and a napkin, and as he started to walk away asked if there was anything else he could do for her.

She said: “Sir, if you don't mind could you help me eat?”
What happened next caused another customer, David Jones, to grab his phone and record it.
“He didn't stop to think about, 'Well, should I help her, should I not,' he just went over, put the gloves on and started feeding her,” Jones told the TV station.
He sent the video to some of his friends to show them that “there's still some good people in the world,” he said.
That video has since gone viral on social media.
Quarles had a simple explanation for what he did.
“I mean, she needs help and if I wasn't going to do it, no one was,” he said. “Who else is going to do it?”
