Yesterday, Joanna Griffiths shared this bomb-ass story on Facebook:
“I felt the need to share this with all of you, and perhaps make this man go viral. Last week I got an iced coffee at Dunkin donuts around 7:30am, later on that day I saw the same man walking but was unable to pick him up or I would have been late for work myself. Little did I know, he was walking 8 1/2 miles to his second full time job at the Big Apple for his Graveyard shift. I stopped at the Big Apple on my way home from work around 10:45pm to see if he could use a lift home while I grabbed gas, but he politely declined stating he worked another 3+ hours closing.
The moral of the story is this, if you are an able bodied person, there is a job out there for you. No matter what the job may be. This man walks 16 miles every day between both his jobs, making minimum wage at both. Minimum wage in New Hampshire is $7.25/hr. This man shows that if you are motivated, ambitious, and WILLING to work, it IS possible.
Note: if he didn't work and collected state and federal aid, he would make MORE than both his jobs combined.

In a world of societal leeches and welfare brats, people like Kyle really stand out. This is a guy who could live more comfortably if he accepted welfare, but instead, he works for a living. But you know what’s got that the welfare brats don’t? Dignity. Character. Honor. The satisfaction of knowing he earned every dime he’s got. Like Chuck Noll said, “Good things come to those who hustle.” Kyle be like:
So internet, meet Kyle. Kyle has a killer work ethic. Be like Kyle.
