    Awesome for you Tim! Now what's my excuse?

  • Tillman61

    That is very cool. He's the greatest. Dad and Mom rock as well.

    Fearless.

    • AMA

      I graduated with Tim. He's honestly a really cool guy. If any chivers are in the Albuquerque area, it's worth a stop. The food is great and Tim is there pretty much every day

  • ChristHump

    I don't like him cuz he's different.

    • Yann

      Cool story bro.

    • Cavegilga

      I don't like you cause you're an asshole.

    • http://www.facebook.com/arty.sanchez Arty Sanchez

      That's kinda funny… Loosen up guys

      That being said… I have a downs niece and this story is pretty f'ing awesome
      Quite an inspiration, way to go Tim

    • joeri

      you sir, are an asshole

    • Bella

      It's not his falt he's different I'd never say that to you?!! And sir he is the most amazing person and you can be unhappy your hole life.

      • ChristHump

        *fault
        *whole

        You, like most of the idiots on here, are retarded and don't get a little sarcastic humor. -69. Fuck yeah.

        • Rae

          Hey! You're really great at spelling! Too bad you suck at life!

  • https://www.facebook.com/josh.miller.9480 Josh Miller

    dude, this made me feel pathetic in the best way.

  • manilovefilmsdylan

    I'll be concise: awesome story.

  • Trailer Ray

    That's fucking awesome. I wish I had enough energy and love for my job in the morning to dance before I came in. KCCO Tim!

    • bob

      get a lobotomy or remove one of your chromosomes and u will

      • go die

        Actually people with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome. But also, way to be a dick.

      • Jedediah

        If you had a lobotomy your emotions are flat so you would not be dancing to work, asshole.

      • ECovE1224

        bhahaha, shows what you know. idiot…

  • DarthBile

    Send this man an Irish KCCO shirt IMMEDIATELY!

    • Brittany

      AMEN! I haved lived in NM my whole life and I cant believe Ive never been to this place with as many times as I have been to Albuquerque!

  • darkohanzo

    so 1 restaurant alone has more friendliness and happiness in it than all the McDonalds combined.

    • Akbaby

      Haha

  • Whale

    Freakin Awesome.

  • sfb101

    I wish I had his motivation…
    Tim, you're awesome!
    EDIT: I just went to his website: http://timsplaceabq.com/
    You can go and say "HI" to him. Several Chivers & Chivettes have all ready!

  • larry

    This is what I call a dopamine dump!

  • Tillman61

    Hey, "pissoff" and "ChristHump" – and whatever names you'll use on the next post –
    Have you noticed that nobody gives an absolute shit about your trolling anymore?
    Have you noticed that instead of going to a job or school, you thumbs down all the comments and write like cretins? Have you noticed you live in your mom's basement and have never kissed a girl?

    • MM3 Mighty Joe

      Mayte, by responding like this, you're just fueling the fire. Trolls feed on negativity. Just ignore.

    • TheVanityScore

      ya feeding the trolls is never good. i have a bad habit of doing it myself. but i know your intentions are good man. kcco

      • Thomas

        I'll have to be the third to say the same, ignore them

    • Tillman61

      I know – you're all correct. Won't do it again.

    • ChristHump

      Yeah dipshit. Listen to your fellow Chivers. By the way, all "trolls" are unemployed, uneducated virgins who live with mommy. Also, ChristHump is an excellent name so keep your prejudices to yourself.

      • Tillman61

        Thanks. You have a great weekend.

    • Till-what?

      Wow. There's always a douchebag named Tillman everywhere I go. What is up with that? Have members of that family reached a general consensus that first names are stupid, and only "Tillman" can really express the true douchiness of their clan?

  • NotBob

    Well, thats very nice. Over here in Argentina we have a similar story of a woman with down syndrome who managed to become, not only a lawyer, but also the president of the country. Inspirational indeed.

    • rfg

      I can't thumb this up enough!

    • https://www.facebook.com/john.smokey.campbell John Hugh Campbell

      She doesn't have any sort of disability… You're an idiot.

      • Craigery

        Do you have a disability that makes it difficult for you to detect jokes?

        • https://www.facebook.com/john.smokey.campbell John Hugh Campbell

          Oh I understood the "joke" just found it to be poorly placed. Comparing a politician to a someone who has overcome the challenges of down syndrome is pretty weak.

    • Josh

      Here in America we have the same thing! and you should see the VIce President! holy moley.

      • Zach

        Mind keeping your idiotic political BS out of this unrelated heart warming story? Go be a whiney loser somewhere else.

    OH YEAH!!!

  • D.O.

    I think Chive Charities needs to set up a fund!

    • Tyler Durden

      Not really. I think this guy would turn down any help. He's doing pretty good on his own. Maybe send him a sweet goodie bag from theChive and leave it at that.

      • Brittany

        Are you a fan of Fight CLub Tyler Durden?:)

      • Aaron

        I know Tim, he does just fine by himself. He's got an awesome and supportive family. Though I like that you want start a fund he doesn't particularly need it.

    • SDF

      Why?

  • https://www.facebook.com/conor.kendrick Conor Kendrick

    Awesome, Rock on Tim! Where is this place???

    • Gurudel

    • justn
