A cafe worker in Ireland was spotted helping a patron reach home in pouring rain.
A video is going viral on the internet of a bartender removing a patio umbrella to escort a patron on a wheel-chair home during torrential rain in Ireland. It shows the patron rolling down his wheel-chair on a wet road, as the young bartender holds the gigantic umbrella to shield both of them from the rain and wind. Sharing the video on Twitter, former professional American basketball player Rex Chapman asked his followers to be like Frankie, the barman, suggesting it does not do any harm to be a “Frankie” every once in a while.
Frankie works at The Pines Cafe Bar in Dublin and went beyond his call of duty to help the customer reach home. Since his gesture of goodwill was filmed and shared online, the video has been viewed more than 5.34 lakh times and earned a lot of praise for Frankie.
One user said his gesture was “typical Irish”
Another called Frankie a kind soul.
A third user referred to Frankie walking a little crooked as the wind hit the umbrella, but added some fun to how he said it.
Another said he has been escorted to many pubs but never as nicely as this.
The video was first posted on Facebook by The Pines Cafe Bar.
Mr Chapman usually shares such videos and posts on his Twitter handle to bring attention to people showing kind gestures to others. He also shares some funny videos. Recently, he shared a video of a little boy dancing in sync with a group of dancers performing in a park.
“This little man dancing with the big folks is the Twitter content I’m here for…” said Mr Chapman.
