A Tennessee restaurant manager’s generosity helped ease the anxieties of Florida newlyweds evacuating during Hurricane Irma. Deanna and Benjamin Feist of Brandon, Florida, were married just before Irma hit Florida on Monday. They were happy to evacuate to the Great Smoky Mountains to make the most of their honeymoon. But as they arrived at the parking lot of the a restaurant in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee the couple began experiencing car problems. They got a battery jump from a man parked next to him, who was a manager at the restaurant. He fixed the couple’s car, got them seated in the restaurant and made sure they were served quickly. He also put $200 into an envelope and instructed the couple’s waitress to give it to them. Here is what Deanna wrote on Facebook:
"My Husband and I are in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and we extended our stay from Brandon, Florida to avoid hurricane Irma. As we were headed to lunch at The Old Mill restaurant, all the lights in our dash came on, from airbags to tire pressure. After We shut the car off, it wouldn't turn on again. We asked the gentleman in the car next to us if we could get a jump, he happily helped us out. As I went inside to put our names on the wait list, he told my husband he was the manager and he would get us in right away. His name was Mo, and he had been running the restaurant for 23 years. He got us a table, and our lunch came out quicker than could be expected. As we finished up, our waitress put an envelope on our table and said it was from the manager, and that our meals were on the house. Inside was a voucher for free meals, $200 cash and a letter. The Letter reads: "You are probably here to escape the Hurricane Irma. My brother lives in Tallahassee, Fl. I am saddened to see such devastation in this beautiful state. I hope everything will turn out ok for you guys. Enclosed please accept my gift to you in case you need to buy a battery for your car. Also I am enclosing a meal ticket so you can come back to eat here. Good luck and Thanks for visiting my restaurant Mo Tamaddoni General Manager." This act of selflessness and generosity has touched my heart. There are still good people out there! I promise I will pay it forward! This man is a God send!"
