Maryland man forced to walk 10miles to Texas Roadhouse job is gifted a car from community

A Maryland man who walked more than 10 miles to get to work after his scooter broke down will get a car.

Isaac Saul Mettle Jr.’s scooter broke down about six weeks ago. It was his only form of transportation to get to his Texas Roadhouse job from his residence, but the Salisbury man didn’t let the trek stop him from getting to work.

‘On feet it takes about three hours and on bike it’s about an hour, probably, about an hour and ten minutes,’ he explained to WMDT. ‘It’s just what I have to do.’

Nathan Richwyne with Texas Roadhouse says he never heard Mettle complain. Mettle says he didn’t want to bring his problems to work.

‘The thing is I don’t try to bring my problems to work. I don’t try to, I don’t try to take it out on anybody else,’ he added.

Richwyne stated: ‘I mean walking three hours to work from Nanticoke Road and never once did I hear him complain, so we’re trying to do whatever we can to raise money for him.’

‘It’s part of the community. When you have somebody that’s a worker like that, you know there’s so many people who want something for free and don’t want to take an earning. Then you have this gentleman that doesn’t want to complain and he keeps on going regardless of he situation he just keeps on going.’
