There are a lot of bad, rotten people in the world. But I’m a strong believer that there are so many more good people out there.
Angela Peters went to the nail salon inside her local Walmart in in Burton, Michigan, a few weeks ago. It was the Da Vi Nails salon and she was so excited to be having her nails done up. It had been quite a while since she’d been pampered in such a way.
But there was a problem at the salon. Angela’s hands moved too much, so the salon worker REFUSED to do her nails. You see, Angela is confined to a wheelchair with cerebral palsy, and her drawn-up hands shake uncontrollably because of it. The nail salon employee said she could just not work with Angela and sent her on her way. This, obviously, made Angela very sad.
But a nearby Walmart cashier heard the salon worker refuse to work with Angela, so as Angela left the nail salon, Ebony Harris quickly asked for her lunchbreak and walked over to the woman in the wheelchair. She told Angela not to worry…. that SHE would do her nails. So the women picked out a polish color, got a table at the Subway restaurant inside Walmart, and Ebony Did Angela’s nails.
As Ebony applied the polish to her fingernails, Angela’s hands trembled slightly, and she kept apologizing for it. But Ebony shook her head and said, “Now you stop saying that… you’re just fine.” When Ebony was done, Angela had some sparkling new fingernails.
Says Ebony: “I just wanted to make her day special… I didn’t want her day to be ruined… plus, she’s a sweetie.”
The Subway worker who took the photo of Ebony working on Angela’s nails said she was so inspired by Ebony’s kindness and Angela’s sweetness. And, that she herself would no longer be giving that nail salon any of her business.
Can’t say that I blame her.
