Jen Goodhand-Wyatt's son, Oscar, got some bad news this week: his doctor didn't believe his heart was healthy enough to handle doing karate. This was especially devastating to Oscar, who's autistic, because he likes to think of himself as a superhero. And he believed that if you can't do karate, you can't be a superhero. Workers at a TGI Friday's in Coventry, England, disagreed.

When Oscar and his mom came in for a meal, they let them sit at a Star Wars-themed table, and Jen explained that Oscar is a Star Wars-loving superhero. After that, the happy surprises came one after another.
"The waitress comes over and says, 'I understand you're a superhero. Here's your menu,'" Jen wrote in a grateful Facebook post, adding that she told the server about the upsetting hospital visit.
"A new waiter...returned moments later with two balloon models he'd made for Os. A little while later he came over and asked me if he could buy a pudding, any pudding off the menu, for Os...Chocolate Brownie it was! When he served it I asked why. 'Because he's a superhero!' was his reply," Jen continued.

But the best moment of the night had to be when the bill arrived. As you can see, the mom and son received the Superhero discount.
