Screw Kindness!

, | Hopeless | March 31, 2017

My mom bought a second hand chair via Facebook. The seller drops it off at our place along with a bag of screws to assemble it. Pretty soon we find out some screws are missing. My mom goes to the hardware store to get some, but ends up buying the wrong size. This happens twice, and the store she got it from doesn’t appear to have the size we are looking for. At long last and after a lot of frustration that after 4 days (there was a weekend in between) we still have a have a half-assembled chair in the living room, my mom goes to another hardware store where she finally finds the right screws… to only find out at the register that she forgot her wallet.

Even more frustrated she is planning to leave the screws and come back another time. Then somebody standing behind her in line asks what the price for the screws is, which was only a small amount. The stranger digs up some spare change from her wallet and pays for the screws.

My mom came home flabbergasted telling me this story.

Lately, acts of kindness in our life was hard to come by, and this stranger turned it all around. Thank you, kind stranger for making my mom’s week!
