Police Officer Helps Homeless Man Shave For A Job Interview

posted by Emily - 

This just goes to show how much a small act of kindness could impact someone's life. Tallahassee police officer Tony Carlson was pulling into a gas station when he was approached by a homeless man named Phil asking for some help with his electric razor. The razor was apparently missing a screw, and Phil asked Carlson if he knew anything about how to fix it. Carlson ended up getting the razor to work, but noticed that without a mirror, it was a challenge for Phil to shave his own face. He told Carlson that he was trying to shave for a job interview at a local McDonalds, and Carlson stepped up to help him out.

“The lady told me if I can show up Monday clean with my beard cut off, they’ll promise me a job,” Phil said. “I was out here trying to shave, but I can’t see cause I don’t have a mirror, so the Tallahassee Police Department shaved me up the rest of the way.”

Officer Carlson's response? “This isn’t … something spectacular, It happens all the time. It just so happens that this time someone caught it on film.”

I'm glad they did.
