The Unconditional Kindness Of Strangers
Wednesday - December 02, 2009
I would like to send a huge APPLAUSE to the person who found my cell phone. My husband and I had gone to Dave & Buster’s to watch the UH football game. I didn’t realize my cell phone was missing until the next day. Maya answered my call to D&B. She said they had my phone. I was so relieved I wouldn’t have to contact my carrier to cancel my number. Thank you again to the wonderful person who found my phone and turned it in.
A big mahalo to the person who found my keys on Date Street and left them where I could reclaim them four hours later. You saved me some bucks and a lot of hassle. God bless!
Yesterday at Target I made the big mistake of locking both my purse and keys in my car while engrossed with my toddler son. To make matters worse, my husband is currently in Japan. I called a locksmith from the customer service phone and was informed that it would be 20 to 30 minutes before his arrival.
My son and I stood in front of the store, waiting for the locksmith. A wonderful lady exiting the store evidently sensed my distress. We struck up a conversation and I spoke of my mishap. She noted that my toddler son was both hungry and tired, and that I was without my purse or wallet. This nice woman not only produced a drink but also a personal pan pizza for my son! Things were rushed at that point due to the locksmith arriving, thus I did not get her name or phone number. However, I am so thankful for her
kindness during my plight. She was an angel and I really appreciated her generosity.
Dear Lyndell, Darrell and Lenora,
It takes only one incident of losing something for you to realize all the steps you must take to minimize the consequences. A standing ovation goes to your anonymous angels who took the time to save you the trouble.
(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.)
