Perfect Employee SHOCKED To Receive A Big Thank You

Kevin Ford, 54, of Las Vegas, Nevada has been humbly working as a cook and a cashier at the Burger King in the city’s McCarran International Airport for 27 years. In all those years he has never missed a day of work.

When Ford went to work last week it was the 27th anniversary of his employment, but he didn’t make a big deal about it and his bosses were not aware of the commemoration. When Ford made a joke about his time with the company, management scrambled to get him a thank-you gift which consisted of a movie ticket, a Starbucks cup, some candy, chocolate, and a backpack to put it in.

Ford posted a video of him thanking his team and showing gratitude for the items, but he never imagined it would go viral.

Since then, the video has garnered tens of thousands of views and likes. Many users on social media expressed shock and agreed that, for Ford’s loyalty, he should have been honored with something more substantial. But being the grateful person he is, Ford said he was simply honored to have received the gift and the nod.

"I was honored, it was nice and I loved it," Ford said. "One lady’s been there for 35 years, they didn’t get anything that I know of so I was happy."

Ford said that he had given some of his gifts to his coworkers in thanks for their gratitude. But Ford’s daughter thought more should be done to show appreciation for his inspirational work ethic.

Unbeknownst to Ford, she set up a GoFundMe to help raise money as an extra way to celebrate her father’s career milestone.

Ford said the fund was originally aiming to raise $200, but as of June 30, it has more than $270,000.

"He originally began working at this job as a single father when he gain custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago. Then as our family grew and he remarried, he continue to work here because of the amazing health insurance that was provided through this employer because it was unionized," Ford’s daughter Seryna wrote on the fundraiser's page. "Which got all four of his daughters through high school and college with full healthcare coverage."

"My dad continues to work here because though he does look young, he is coming up on retirement age, and leaving would cost him his retirement," she continued. "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."

Actor David Spade gave $5,000 and even messaged Ford on Instagram wishing him the best of luck.

When asked what his daughter’s motivation was Ford said "I guess she just did it because she loves me."

Even with all the money he has received, Ford says he has no plans to retire or take a day off, even for a vacation.

"You never know, it’s day to day but I haven’t thought of anything to do with that money except to visit my grandkids for a while and maybe put some up for their college, but I’m not even thinking about that," he added. "I’m just working."
