Good Samaritans Are Right On Target
Wednesday - September 16, 2009
No matter how thankful I am in my life, pushing my blessings is not something that I would like to take for granted, but there are two unknown individuals involved in two separate incidents whom I need to give a big mahalo and God bless you.
I work the night shift at the Kapolei Target, and upon returning home after work, I realized my phone was not attached to my belt holder. My wife immediately started calling my phone and stated that if anyone found my phone, please call me or turn the phone into the lost and found at the Kapolei Target.
When I returned to work that evening, the clerk at the lost and found desk said it was found in the store, but no name was left.
The second incident occurred about a week after the loss of the phone. I had been shopping at Costco in Kapolei and I overlooked a large bottle of analgesic while retrieving my other purchases from the shopping cart. As in the course of one’s daily life, the medication was not missed until needed. I went back to Costco to see if maybe someone might have turned it in. Sure enough! Again, no one left a name.
The phrase “three times a blessing” - all I can conclude is that I do not need three losses to make three blessings, as mine are doubled along the way. The cost of these items cannot compare to the integrity and honesty of these individuals, especially during these difficult economic times for all concerned.
Thank you many times over. You both are respected and appreciated.
Just wanted to thank the lovely lady MP who so patiently and graciously helped a friend and me this past Saturday. We were looking for Target and just couldn’t seem to get on the right track. I was driving and got totally confused. We both live in the Waikiki area and take the bus. I am not thrilled about the roads or even being in a car! We ended up at Aliamanu (not sure if it was the military installation or housing) and asked for directions. This young lady had us turn around and park in front of the guard station! She repeated the directions to us time and time again.
Finally we did make it to Target. That’s why we ride the bus!
Dear Drena and David,
There must be something about Target that’s attracting these Good Samaritans! Your anonymous angels deserve your generous APPLAUSE for taking the time to do the right thing.
(If you know someone who deserves some Applause, send your letters to Pamela Young, MidWeek Applause, KITV, 801 S. King St., Honolulu, HI, 96813 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, phone number and, if possible, the phone number of your “applaudee” so we can contact him or her.)
