  • Waffle House employee in Texas helps elderly man cut up his food

The customer, a Waffle House regular, had recently undergone surgery and was using an oxygen tank.

"Without hesitation, she took his plate and began cutting up his ham", she wrote in the post.

The city of La Marque also proclaimed March 8, 2018, Evoni "Nini" Williams Day in the city after seeing her act of kindness that went viral on Facebook this week.

"That's me all the time giving, helping, serving", Williams said. Sitting nearby, patron Laura Wolf snapped a photograph and posted it to Facebook.

The photo went viral, with 98,000 reactions and almost 47,000 shares.

Williams is grateful for the scholarship and said she would have done it for anybody because it's the right thing to do. The LaMarque mayor also honored her with a special proclamation for her act of kindness. "La Marque Mayor Bobby Hocking is passionate about our community's youth and wants to encourage her dreams of attending college". If that wasn't enough, Williams is just 18 and is working at the Waffle House to save up for college.

Williams, who started working at the Waffle House after graduating from high school in May 2017, said she never expected her actions to receive so much attention.

Williams said was taken aback by the outpouring, KTRK-TV said.

"It's something I would do any other day", Williams said.
