This Elderly Woman Tried To Order Food From A Delivery Guy And So He Ordered It For Her

This is such a sweet story.

Getting food delivered is one of the greatest joys in life, one that not all are privileged enough to experience. But, one delivery man went out of his way to make sure an old lady got to enjoy this simple pleasure, and his good deed proves that kindness still exists!

Elpegie Palmares Sicor was just doing his job and delivering food to Maris Mayol Tian, who had ordered food from a restaurant called Jollibee, when an older woman, Tian’s neighbor, known as Nanay, stopped him and asked if she could buy any food that he had, too. 

Sicor tried to explain that he only had food that had been ordered, but she didn’t seem to understand. So, he called the restaurant and placed an order for her.

Tian caught the sweet gesture on camera and posted the photo to Facebook:

“I honestly thought he would just ignore her, laugh and be on his way, but he actually took out his own cell phone, dialed a number, and ordered for her,” she wrote.

Little did she know, her cute story was going to make a major impact online. The post had been liked over 340,000 times and shared just over 50,000 times.

“I didn’t expect anything like this to happen,” Tian told BuzzFeed. “But it’s a nice feeling when you get to share good vibes and positivity with people you don’t know.”

And as for the delivery guy, he says he was just doing his job.

“It’s my job, customer service,” he told BuzzFeed.

But, people online can’t help but point out how nice it was for Sicor to help out this 92-year-old woman.

“That is the sweetest,” one Facebook comment read.

Another person wrote, “Faith in humanity restored.”

This is the perfect example of how the smallest gestures can make a big impact, so keep that in mind the next time you’re tipping your delivery guy!
