"This is the way we're supposed to be": The amazing story of how restaurant staff went out of their way to make young girl's day better

Today on the radio show, Glenn shared the amazing story of a restaurant staff that went out of their way to make a young, autistic girl's day just a little bit better.

Glenn read from TheBlaze:

Anna Kaye MacLean explained in the post that she and her husband took her younger sister to Chili’s where she ordered her usual favorite — cheeseburger with pickles and French fries with a chocolate milk — promptly when the waitress, Lauren, came to get drink orders.

When the food was delivered MacLean said she asked her sister why she wasn’t eating her Krabby Patty, a reference to the hamburger joint in the cartoon show SpongeBob Square Pants.

“She replied, ‘It’s broken. I need another one thats fixed,’” MacLean’s Facebook post read. “Then it dawned on me why she wasn’t eating it. It’s because it was cut in half. Being a child with autism, she has to have certain things in a particular order at all times. One slight change in her routine can change the course of the day instantly.”

MacLean told the waitress when she returned that she needed to order a new burger, which they would happily pay for, that wasn’t cut down the middle. Here’s what happened next:

Lauren was so sweet and just smiled and went along with Arianna, telling her “I brought you a broken cheeseburger?! You know what, I’ll have them cook you a new one!” I loved this because rather than just taking it from the table, she actually TOLD Arianna what she was doing. While this seems insignificant, by her telling Arianna what she was doing, we avoided a melt down. The manager, Bradley Cottermole, then came to our table, kneeled down, and said to Arianna, “I heard we gave you a broken cheeseburger! I am so sorry about that! We are making you a brand new one that isn’t broken, with pickles! I’ll bring you some french fries to munch on while you’re waiting, ok?” A couple of minutes later, Lauren arrived back at our table with cheeseburger #2.

The little girl thanked Lauren for fixing her cheeseburger, turned to the sandwich to say ”OH I missed you!!” and began kissing it. That’s when MacLean snapped the photo posted above and showed it to Lauren who in turn took it to the manager and the kitchen staff who all got a kick out of it.

"This is the way we're supposed to be.  This is the way a manager of a restaurant is supposed to be.  Not because he's going to get his name on the Internet or be praised or anything like that.  Just because that's the way we treat each other.  That's the way we do business.  We treat each other with respect," Glenn said.

Glenn encouraged people to tell others when they see stories and service like this. But he also said it's a two-way street and that we also need to be the kind of people who go out of their way to help others and make their day better.

"But it's also our responsibility to be that own person in our own life in our own job.  No matter how poorly we were treated.  To go the extra mile," Glenn said.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
