This young man walked overnight just to make it to his first day of work when his car broke down. What happened next is just heart warming!
Walter Carr, a student who recently landed his first job at Bellhops, a moving company, walked for 20 miles at night to make it to his first day of work, because his car broke down.
Since Walter's car had broken down, he decided to walk all the way to work, at night. Walter walked straight for 20 miles Homewood to Pelham (Alabama) to make sure he isn't late for his first day at work.
The policemen found Walter walking around during the night. Carr explained his situation to the police officers. The policemen listened carefully and were kind enough to give Walter a ride to work.
When they found Walter, he had already walked for about 4 hours! They took him to have breakfast before dropping him off. Humanity is real and still exists, people!
The police dropped him off to the Pelham family, where Carr was scheduled to work and move things. Jenny Lamey and her husband opened the door early morning to find the police and a boy at their door. The policemen explained the whole story to the couple and they were shocked at Carr's sincerity and dedication!
“Walter said that he was supposed to help us with our move today. The officer proceeded to tell us that the previous evening, Walter’s car broke down and he didn’t know how he was going to get to work. So he left Homewood at MIDNIGHT and started WALKING to Pelham on 280. He WALKED ALL NIGHT,” wrote Lamey on her Facebook page.
When Walter Carr's vehicle broke down before his first day on the job, he could have called out. Instead, he chose to walk over a dozen miles to get there on time and gained the attention of his company's CEO, who made sure he would always have a ride: https://t.co/Rw3DAyjNFs pic.twitter.com/nFQwdLy8dF— CBS News (@CBSNews) July 17, 2018
Lamey's post went Viral. After finding out about the incident, the CEO of Bellhops drove to the scene and gifted his hardly used 2014 Ford Escape to Carr. Carr was overwhelmed by his kindness and became all teary.
We've all seen the amazing story shared by Jenny about one of our bellhops, Walter Carr, but many have asked if we have any video from the moment CEO @LukeMarklin thanked Walter for the perseverance he demonstrated on his first day w/ @BellhopsMoving #TheWorldNeedsMoreWalters pic.twitter.com/mXrvI2JQoP— Bellhops (@BellhopsMoving) July 17, 2018
