Since people have been curious whether Phil landed the job or not, the department has posted two updates on Phil's job situation.

"This evening I was going to dinner with the family and my kids pointed out Phil (and his friend Lonnie) sitting under the flyover on Thomasville Rd," Officer Carlson said. "After dinner we decided to pick up a few cheeseburgers from McDonald's and stop by to talk with Phil. Phil was surprised and excited to see me. He pulled out the Tallahassee Democrat front page, that had me and him on it, and showed it to me.

He then told me he had talked to the manager at McDonald's and he was set to get a job but he still needed to get his ID/SS card. I then told Phil I had good news about that and told him I had been contacted by Senator Marco Rubio's office here in town. They stated they had also seen the story and wanted to help Phil get his ID and Social Security card."

On Thursday, Officer Carlson drove Phil to Senator Rubio's office to fill out the necessary paperwork.

When asked if he had any news, Phil simply responded, "Ya'll have a blessed day."
