IHOP Employee Photographed While Committing Random Act Of Kindness

Turning iHop into I hope.

An IHOP employee in Springfield, Ill., tentatively identified as Johann Thomas, was photographed by Keshia Dotson while engaging in a simple yet profoundly touching random act of kindness.

Dotson reports that while eating, she witnessed Johann sit down with a disabled woman to help her eat. 

"A man and disabled women were dining and your server sat down with them and proceeded to help feed the disabled woman while her companion enjoyed his food," Dotson wrote in a post with her photograph on IHOP's Facebook wall. "My faith in humanity has been restored a little today."


According to one commenter who claims to work at the same IHOP, Johann's actions were just part of what he does there for one of his regular customers.

Other commenters also reported positive experiences with Thomas, who seems to be something of an IHOP saint.

We could all stand to be a little more like Johann Thomas. Thank you for inspiring us to be better to others every single day.
