18-year-old Jhaqueil Reagan had no idea that when he stopped for directions last week he’d meet a man who’d change his life. Restaurant owner Art Bouvier was laying salt rock outside his Cajun restaurant in Indianapolis when Reagan stopped and asked how far it was to his destination. Bouvier told him it was at least six or seven miles and suggested he take a bus in the cold weather, but Reagan just thanked him and kept walking. Later Bouvier and his wife noticed Reagan still on his trek and offered him a ride. During the trip they found out the teen had been forced to drop out of school and raise his siblings, but with only a GED he couldn’t find stable work. He was on his way to a Dairy Queen for a job interview and had already walked three miles before reaching Bouvier’s restaurant because he couldn’t afford the bus. “You hear too many stories about people that want work, but it's got to be the right work. It's got to be glamour work; it's got to be high paying work, a management position," said Bouvier. "And then here's a kid who knows there's work available, and it's hard to get, and it's hard to do, but he'll do it." Bouvier was so impressed that he instantly told Reagan that even if he got the Dairy Queen offer he would double his salary to have him come work at his restaurant. Reagan accepted and started work on Monday. And that wasn’t the only good news for Reagan – it turns out he won’t be walking anywhere for a while. After Bouvier posted the story on Facebook and it went viral, the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation offered the teen a year’s worth of bus passes.
