A photo of a disabled Whataburger cashier goes viral, in Denton, Texas, after a young woman, Kolbie Sanders, takes to Facebook with the captured image.

The picture is a heartwarming gesture that shows patience and kindness can still exist even in a fast-paced atmosphere.

According to Fox News 4, the fast-food line was long, but Deaf cashier, Taylor Pope, did his best to understand his customers making them repeat certain words and phrases. It was this perseverance that led to Sanders uploading the photo to Facebook.

Fox News 4 asked Sanders why she posted the photo.

“I think the one thing that stood out was his smile,” said Sanders .

Fast food lines are normally the source of frustration with long lines and mixed up orders, but at this Whataburger in Denton patience was given to Pope by each customer in line. Not one rude word was spoken.

Sanders commented on the teamwork displayed inside the fast-food restaurant.

“It was just very nice to see everyone come together to help him while he was working,” said Sanders.

Pope describes how he was overwhelmed with kindness.

“With all the people helping me with the orders, it made me feel happy,” admitted Pope.

Pictured below is Sander’s original Facebook post:

“I’ve never posted something like this but I just really want to share what I witnessed tonight. My boyfriend and I were starving and the Whataburger down the street was calling our name so we went (we were going to go through drive-thru but that line was way too long so I decided to go inside instead) 

I went inside and realized the inside line was a bit long too but I was too hungry to go anywhere else, so I waited. (the time is almost 1am because I work nights)
