Teacher Snaps Quick Picture At McDonald’s And Tells Man “You’re Going Viral”
Amanda Craft was having lunch with a group of fellow special education teachers in McDonald’s Noblesville, Indiana, and probably thought her day would play out much the same as many of the others.
That was until the women overheard a conversation between a young man sitting at another table opposite an elderly woman. Their stark differences peaked the interests of the group, but it was the exchanged words that confirmed Amanda’s belief that she had to do something. In the end, she took a photo of the pair, her mind fixed on the young man who would later be identified as Eric Haralson.
Just before she left the restaurant, she told him: “I hope you know, you’re going to go viral.” It turned out, as a matter of fact, he did go viral.
She continued: “S-hout out to this guy! My friends and I watched him introduce himself and shake her hand. They talked and laughed together like they were friends. They didn’t know each other, and they couldn’t be more different. But, today, they shared a meal together and it touched our hearts.”
Unsurprisingly, plenty of people shared Amanda’s joy at Eric’s actions.
Before long, he and his companion – known only as “Jan” – took the internet by storm. Speaking to Inside Edition, Eric revealed: “She said she just wanted a little conversation, because no one likes to eat alone.”
Eric cleared a place for her and the two struck up an unlikely friendship. What’s more, Eric ended up exchanging phone numbers with his new friend Jan, and they’ve planned to meet up again to have more funny talks.
