Talking to TMZ, he said that although it is a “great company” to work for, they’ve “lost touch with their workers.”

This was made apparent when he showed the world the thanks he got for the many years he’s spent with them. Ford explained that the company used to give out checks, but instead he got a single movie ticket.

“It was just stuff that they had laying around that they put together,” he told the news outlet.

Ford also said that he’d “like to take a day off,” but he can’t “think about having a day off.”

The hard-working Ford got a bag of Reece’s, a cup from Starbucks, a lanyard, 2 pens, 1 movie ticket, and a couple of keychains… Not what you’d expect, right?

Well, David Spade wasn’t having any of it, showing that he appreciates hard work when he sees it.

Ford’s daughter, who set up a GoFundMe page for her father so that he could come and visit them, excitedly told him that the comedic legend himself had donated.

Speaking about his eventual good fortune, Ford explained: “The generosity of these people is just overwhelming. I’ve been crying for three days now. I can’t believe it. I really can’t.”

Ford added that he would use some of the money raised to pay for his grand-kids to go to college.

Finally some good news.
