A story of a New Hampshire man's integrity and work ethic is making its way around the internet after a customer he helped at Dunkin' Donuts founds out how he got by in life.
Joanna Giffiths told Kyle Bigler's story in a post 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.
Joanna said that Kyle is an amazing employee. “He knows my coffee; he knows everybody’s coffee,” she said. "You just walk in, and he's so personable and he's so kind."
Kyle does whatever he can to keep up with the bills and spend time with his son. He told KFOR that two days a week he pulls 20 - 21 hour shifts straight.
“There are jobs everywhere; you just have to look,” Kyle said. “If it’s a problem with someone not having a vehicle, I mean, I walk eight miles.”
Joanna's Facebook post went viral, as a result, Kyle has been offered many new jobs and was given a free, new car from a local mechanic.
