A HUGE thank you to Alfonso taking my order at @_chickenexpress in Carrollton who noticed my car was overheating & helped me (all the while wearing his drive thru headset in the parking lot)! He‘s my guardian angel after my long drive back from Oklahoma this afternoon. 💕💕💕

Her name was Samantha... her family, her friends and her university want you to remember her. Let’s not let her death be a senseless crime.... before boarding a #Lyft, an #Uber or any rideshare, always ask the driver what YOUR name is. If you truly are their passenger, they’ll know before picking you up. #BeSafe #WhatsMyName ... See MoreSee Less
