Customer gives Whataburger employee her mink coat
I saw this story on ABC13 and simply had to blog it. It is not every day that one gets to just watch a feel good story and then just exhale. We are all moving at a thousand miles an hour. We tend to believe the world is getting more and more selfish. The haves are taking all the gains as they leave the scraps for the have nots.
Then a story of a ‘have’ comes along who gives back. Why? Because it makes her feel good. And just maybe because she thinks it is the right thing to do.
ABC13 reported the story as follows.
Sheryl Semien told Eyewitness News a customer handed her a Mink coat after she paid the woman a compliment. The generosity happened Wednesday on Semien’s birthday. She told us she was at work at the Whataburger on US 90 in Liberty around 10 AM when the customer pulled up to the drive-thru window.
“She was a perfect stranger, I didn’t know this lady from nowhere,” said Semien. “I didn’t see her come through my drive-thru window as long as I’ve been at Whataburger for nine years.”
We tracked down the woman, behind the kind gesture. After some convincing, Nadine agreed to speak with Eyewitness News. She did not want her last name used, and said she simply did what felt right. Nadine revealed the coat is worth around $10,000.
“The lady said that’s a beautiful coat and she was so sweet,” said Nadine. “So I took it off and handed it to her through the drive-thru window.”
Would it not be a better world if those who this society have played a part in them having much feel a responsibility to give some back. Society ultimately depends on the understanding that we are all in the same boat and that all pick up the oars when they can. Of course we do want all who can to take their turn.
