Ford said he was looking forward to enjoying some of Spade’s paid time off and expressed shock at Spade’s kindness. “THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! For even watching the video! I love you, my brother!!! Much love and God Bless… I think might be able to take a day off…”Spade was informed by him.
Spade joked about Ford. “wait till year 30″To take any time off “D–, are you one of my managers???”He responded. “Thank you again, Sir… Have a great day.”
The 60-year-old Ford created a popular video thanking Burger King for gifting him a Starbucks cup, a bag of Reese’s Pieces, and a movie ticket. In appreciation for his dedication to Burger King, he also handed him a number of keychains, two pens, a pen, a lanyard, and two additional pens. He kindly said, “Loyalty pays off.” in the video.
Many Twitter users, though, were in disbelief that the business did not do more for them. The Nevada native was astounded by the compassion shown to him after word got out about his dedication to the Las Vegas Airport branch.
“I was grateful for anything. There are people I have worked with for 20 or 30 years and they didn’t get anything. I am happy with anything,” Ford said NewsNationNow.
“I am grateful and happy. I am just thankful that I got that,” He said this about the goody bag. “There are people working hard, and they didn’t get anything.”
Ford was overwhelmed by the many donations he’d received in the previous few days. “The generosity of these people is just overwhelming. I’ve been crying for three days now. I can’t believe it. I really can’t,” he said.
Ford was unable to explain why, over the course of his 27-year career, he had never missed a shift.”I don’t know myself. I don’t know how I did that! Maybe I’m a robot? I just never thought about taking a day off. I just try to work as hard as I can, whatever I do,” Ford explained.
As per Happy mag, the GoFundMe campaign for her father was set up by Seryna Ford’s daughter. Seryna outlined how her father established the business as a single parent in an effort to gain custody of his kids. She clarified that despite the expansion of his family, Ford kept his job. “continued to work here because of the amazing health insurance,” and that “leaving would cost him his retirement.”

“In no way are we asking for money or is he expecting any money, but if anyone feels like blessing him, he would love to visit his grandchildren.”Spade’s $5,000 donation has made Ford’s GoFundMe more than $150,000. Seryna raised an additional $150,000 after surpassing her original goal.
Seryna wrote an update on June 24, “I seriously can’t believe this. Y’all are changing his life! Thank y’all! A million times over, THANK YOU!!!!”
According to Ford, he plans to use the money to visit his daughters and grandchildren in Texas and contribute to their college expenses. He added that he intends to use the funds to buy a Ford hybrid car.
