A homeless guy was assisted to shave by a Florida police officer before a job interview at McDonald’s, and a video of the incident went viral.
Officer Tony Carlson approached the guy, identified only as Phil, after seeing him uncomfortable with a shaving item outside a nearby gas station, as onlookers state.
The whole time Carlson was repairing the razor, which had been broken because of a misplaced bolt, he found out that Phil needed to shave in order to prepare for a job interview at McDonald’s.
Carlson shaved Phil’s beard for him since he didn’t have access to a mirror. The incident was captured on camera by a bystander at the petrol station, who then posted it on Facebook.
It was republished by the Tallahassee Police Department, which has had more than 159,000 views as of this writing.
In an interview Carlson said, “If he’s looking for assistance, it’s my responsibility to be more than helpful and try to help him out the best I can.”
Phil’s shave assisted him in landing the position. Phil will begin working as a McDonald’s employee as soon as he obtains the identity papers he asked for and receives them.
