East Tennessee Restaurant Manager’s Act of Kindness for Irma Evacuees Goes Viral
Description
"I want the world to see how generous others can still be. My husband and I are in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and we extended our stay from Brandon, Florida to avoid hurricane Irma. As we were headed to lunch at The Old Mill restaurant, all the lights in our dash came on, from airbags to tire pressure. After We shut the car off, it wouldn't turn on again. We asked the gentleman in the car next to us if we could get a jump, he happily helped us out. As I went inside to put our names on the waitlist, he told my husband he was the manager and he would get us in right away. His name was Mo, and he had been running the restaurant for 23 years. He got us a table, and our lunch came out quicker than could be expected. As we finished up, our waitress put an envelope on our table and said it was from the manager, and that our meals were on the house. Inside was a voucher for free meals, $200 cash and a letter. The Letter reads:

'You are probably here to escape the Hurricane Irma. My brother lives in Tallahassee, Fl. I am saddened to see such devastation in this beautiful state. I hope everything will turn out ok for you guys. Enclosed please accept my gift to you in case you need to buy a battery for your car. Also I am enclosing a meal ticket so you can come back to eat here. Good luck and Thanks for visiting my restaurant

Mo Tamaddoni, General Manager.'
