An 18-Year-Old Was Walking 10 Miles for a Job Interview, and a Business He Passed on the Way Offered Him a Job
18-year-old Jhaqueil Reagan of Indianapolis had to quit school two years ago, when his mother died and he had to support his siblings. He got his GED, but he's had trouble keeping a steady job. Then last week, he found out that a thrift store was hiring. He couldn't afford the bus, so he WALKED, in the SNOW, even though the store was TEN MILES from his house.
About three miles into his walk, he passed a guy named Art Bouvier, who owns Papa Roux Cajun Cooking. Art was clearing the ice from in front of his restaurant, and decided to gave Jhaqueil a ride the rest of the way.
And he was so impressed with Jhaqueil's work ethic, he posted the story on his Facebook page, and announced that HE was going to give Jhaqueil a job, at the restaurant. Even better, when the city bus company found out about Jhaqueil's story, they gave him a year's worth of free bus passes.
