Homeless man begs for scraps at Chick-fil-A only to have manager say ‘No’ and take action


This dad was eating a meal with his little girl and witnessed the entire exchange.

People come in all shapes and sizes, we’re all on a different journey and we’re all unique in our own way.

But it’s important to remember that we’re all human.

Helping the homeless is something that some of us love to do, and something others avoid for their own reasons.

Father Joey Mustain was reminded of this after taking his daughter into fast food chain Chick-fil-A.

As he and his daughter Stella were eating, a homeless traveler walked in asking restaurant staff if had any left over food.

Joey observed the mud caked into the man’s “well-traveled’ shoes and his matted hair.

The man then spoke politely to the customers around him while he waited for the manager but they “reluctantly spoke back,” according to Joey.

The father, Joey Mustain, posted the entire story to Facebook as soon as they got home:

”I took Stella to Chick-fil-A today. It’s our normal daddy-daughter spot. It’s clean, so good, and the playground has a tractor beam on her the moment she sees it.


When we finished eating and she’d worked up her dessert appetite playing with the other kids, we went back to trade in her toy for ice cream. She wanted to sit at a table to eat the cone (something we usually do in the truck), and I’m so glad she did.

We took a booth right next to the spot where you wait for your drink to be ‘refreshed,’ and we had a front-row seat to this beautiful scene: a homeless traveler had walked in and asked if they had any extra food.

Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes. His hair was matted, and his beard wasn’t a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn’t get to shave as often as most of us do.

People near him kept their distance, but that didn’t stop him from being kind. He spoke to people who reluctantly spoke back, and he smiled while he waited on a manager.”

He was polite and smiled while he waited to speak with the boss…
