Netizens praised a local fastfood for hiring an elderly man as part of their service crew.
A Facebook post is going viral after a netizen shared seeing an unusual sight — an elderly man working as a service crew.
Netizen Gremma Cuello Avellano shared that the man’s name is Tatay Armando and he does everything that a regular service crew would do. The impressed netizen posted, “Kudos sa may ari ng Mang Inasal Sm Center. Si Tatay Armando isang service crew. First time ko makakita sa fastfood chain ng ganito.”

The uploader of the photo also used hashtags to express her message of, “Walang age limit, walang educational background.”
The post quickly went viral as netizens commended Tatay Armando for his hardwork. Some were impressed that while others would just rely on others, this elderly man went to work to make ends meet.
Avellano also said, “Isang ehemplo na hangga’t kaya magtrabaho, kikilos at kikilos dapat tayo. Para hindi tayo pabigat sa gobyerno.”
There are also those who commended Mang Inasal for giving Tatay a chance to still earn a decent living. Netizen Philipp Catabay even wrote, “Mas madami pa blessings matatangap ng Mang Inasal pag ganito gagawin nila tuloy tuloy.”
As the post quickly went viral, Avellano added a few more comments on her post. While others pointed out that Tatay should be at home resting, the uploader replied, “Sa mga nagsasabing kawawa si Tatay kasi matanda na pero nagtatrabaho pa, sa tingin ko mas kawawa siya siguro kung wala ang Mang Inasal na tinanggap siya bilang isang service crew. Mas ok na yan keysa mamalimos siya sa daan.”
