Written by Bryce

In the spirit of positivity, we’d like to introduce you to John Goodlett, the heartwarming employee of the day every American should know about.

If you haven’t already seen this image of John, the Enterprise employee pictured above holding a customer’s baby, allow us to warm your heart for just a minute. This photo of him has been circulating social media like crazy, and for good reason — he’s exactly what this country needs more of right now. The caption from customer Coty Vincent’s photo reads:

“This is John and he works at Enterprise. He’s also a twin and his twin sister is his best friend. While he helped me with my rental due to a hit and run accident, he held one of my twin sons as I don’t have a double stroller. One of the most compassionate and caring people I’ve ever met. We need more people like John who go that extra step. Be a John.#BeAJohn

Coty Vincent, mom to the baby pictured shared, “As a mom of twins, simple gestures go a long way so it was a great feeling that John recognized I needed help.  Without a blink of an eye, he just jumped in and said he could help hold one of the twins.  The world needs more people like John.”

John, the obvious employee of the day for the whole country, had zero ego about his good deed, saying simply that, “I’m a twin myself and it was instinctual. I understood she just needed somebody to help her out. I try to be a positive influence in the lives of anyone I meet, and I wanted her to be able to do less work from the moment I picked her up. I’ve never had this much attention, especially for just doing my job. I was a college athlete so I try to take the hard work it took on the football field and apply it in the branch. And it’s really motivating to see people like who I am and what I do.”

Whoever raised John Goodlett, we’d like to high five you, because this is a solid young man.
