A typical person can ride a bike for roughly 40 kilometers in three hours. Cycling for this amount of time once a week helps improve one’s cardiovascular system and metabolism. Samson Adams, on the other hand, needs to cycle for three hours every day to go to work.The health and wellbeing advantages are simply a bonus. After hearing his story, his coworkers came to his aid and helped him get a new car.
In Paducah, Kentucky, Adams works as a server at Texas Roadhouse. He lived about three miles from his business and does not own a car, so he had to get up early and ride his bicycle there. He is diabetic and has to take breaks along the way, making the trek a 6-hour round trip.”I had no choice but to use a manual bike, and that went out, and then God came and blessed me with all of this,” Adams explained.
Instead of grumbling and being lazy, he had been patient with his situation and exploited what he had. He didn’t mind the tiredness on a daily basis as long as he could make ends meet. Fortunately, Adams’ coworkers learned about his terrible incident. According to Texas Roadhouse Community Ambassador Joelle Long, she discovered everything while Adams was often weary at work.
She’s also noticed a bike in their parking area and wondered if it belonged to one of the servers.Long revealed that Adams’ bike burst one night, forcing him to walk it home. As a result, she decided to offer him rides, which he gratefully accepted.”I began picking him up. We began conversing. “The more I talked to him, the more I got to know him, the more I loved him, the more I realized that this guy really deserves someone to help him,” Long said.
When the restaurant employees learnt about Adam’s situation, they acted fast to help him. They started a GoFundMe account for him with the goal of raising $1000 to pay the costs of a new car, gas, and insurance.As of now, Adams’ GoFundMe campaign had surpassed its goal and received over $6000 in donations. Adams will save the additional money for future gas and insurance costs.
Adams stated that he was surprised by the present from his coworkers. He believed he was in big danger when he was summoned to examine his new automobile. “I was like, ‘Aw man, I forgot to do something, or maybe I shouldn’t have eaten that piece of bread in front of the camera,” Adams explained.”Something simple like that, and she was like, ‘No, you’re not in trouble.'”
I have some good news for you. ‘We found you a car.’ ‘What?’ I ask. Simply put, I didn’t sure what to think. Adams’ days of pedaling for hours on end are finally ended. He used to take three hours to get to work, but now it only takes him 30 minutes. Adams considers himself fortunate and glad to have helpful and nice coworkers.
“Thank you very much, Paducah,” Adams expressed gratitude. “Stop by Texas Roadhouse and say hello.” Samson is my name. I’ll do my best to be the best server I can be.”Many people struggle to get to work every day if they do not have a car. However, there are many people who are prepared to assist them.
One of them is an 8-year-old child from Arkansas who assisted his favorite Waffle House waiter in purchasing a new car after discovering that the latter walked to work every day. Like Adams, his life was made simpler by a child with a huge heart. In the video below, you can see Adams’ touching story:
