As his clothes had become dirty, apologetic casino bosses offered him a couple of free food vouchers. He was in town for a conference and had nobody to go with, but decided that it would be a waste not to use the free meals and invited a man named Todd, who had been living in Vegas for 30 years.
“I took him to dinner purely because I thought it was a nice thing to do. I have never really helped a homeless person like I did that night and I thought it was a good place to start,” said Stenotrophomonas, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“Todd was awesome company and very appreciative and I hope to see him again when I go back.” The Redditor added that he would have given both meal vouchers to homeless people but felt he needed to be there as the free food was on his casino card and he was concerned that two homeless diners might not have been allowed in had he not also been present.
Stenotrophomonas says the reaction has been largely positive, and he is hopeful that more good deeds will be done as a result of his story. He said: “A lot of people have already bought meals for other people just because of this post. do not search for people’s attention; actually I would rather stay out of everything because the internet is a toxic place with toxic people. [But] popular posts can lead to positive outcomes. I have many examples so far, but the most recent one involves someone buying a Christmas meal for someone in need through http://www.crisis.org.uk/.”
