An empathetic employee is being hailed for delivering more than just packages to a Mississippi family – more specifically, he went out of his way to deliver a box to a 6-year-old boy.
Wendy Bailey of Rankin County recently made a Facebook post about how her son Brandon had been waiting for their family’s new refrigerator to be delivered to their house so he could use the box to build a fort.
For two weeks, Brandon patiently waited for the exalted delivery. With that mighty cardboard structure, he would be able to fly a spaceship, hide in a secret getaway, traverse the galaxy of the imagination – anything his heart desired.
When the fridge finally arrived, however, there was no box. The Lowe’s delivery driver felt so bad for the youngster’s sadness, he drove all the way back to his store so he could pick up a refrigerator box and bring it back for Brandon.
“He said ‘every little boy needs an awesome box fort!’” wrote Bailey. “Now that’s going above and beyond!” “There’s one thrilled 6-year-old in my house this morning who also learned an important lesson today about kindness,” she added.
