Before leaving the restaurant Amanda told Eric “I hope you know you’re going to go viral.” Dazzled by Eric’s gesture, Amanda posted the photo on social media later in the evening and shared the story with everyone. 

Amanda said in her post that the elderly lady looked to be lonely and she went up to Eric if she could sit with him. Amanda further said “S-hout out to this guy! My friends and I watched him introduce himself and shake her hand. They talked and laughed together like they were friends. They didn’t know each other, and they couldn’t be more different. But, today, they shared a meal together and it touched our hearts.” The story of Eric went and elderly woman known as “Jan” went viral and many people shared the story on their social media too.
