When a homeless man asked the owner of a cafe in Minnesota for spare change, he didn’t expect to get a job offer instead. According to a viral Facebook post, Abi’s Cafe owner Cesi said the man (named Marcus) entered her restaurant and asked for money. When Cesi asked him why he didn't have a job, the man shared a tragic backstory that led him to "stealing and asking for money."

In the post last Friday, Cesi said she offered Marcus a job since the cafe was understaffed the day he came in. "His eyes opened wide and his smile made my day," she wrote.

He came in to the cafe one day asking me for some $$. I looked at him and asked him "why don't you have a job, you know...

Cesi said Marcus (who's worked in the restaurant for two weeks now) has never been late for his two-hour shift. She said that his job duties include taking out the trash and washing dishes at the cafe. "Once I pay him, guess what he does? He buys food from my restaurant," Cesi said.

"We don't know their situation... some deserve another shot. God gave me this blessing so why can't I bless others?" She said. "...this is what should break the internet."

Cesi's story is one of many that show how one person's small act of kindness can help turn someone else's life around. Of course, it doesn't always work out so well.
