Imagine if you were too afraid to go into the grocery store. Rebecca Mehra came face to face with that reality when she was heading into into the grocery store and heard someone calling to her. She shared the story in a now-viral Twitter thread
“I went to the grocery store this afternoon. As I was walking in I heard a woman yell to me from her car. I walked over and found an elderly woman and her husband. She cracked her window open a bit more, and explained to me nearly in tears that they are afraid to go in the store,” Mehra wrote.
“Afraid to get sick as they are in their 80’s and hear that the novel coronavirus is affecting older people disproportionately. And that they don’t have family around to help them out. Through the crack in the window she handed me a $100 bill and a grocery list, and asked if I would be willing to buy her groceries. I bought the groceries and placed them in her trunk, and gave her back the change. She told me she had been sitting in the car for nearly 45 min before I had arrived, waiting to ask the right person for help,” she explained.
Mehra continued: “I know it’s a time of hysteria and nerves, but offer to help anyone you can. Not everyone has people to turn to.”
It sucks that those people had no one to help them, but it’s awesome that they found someone who didn’t just grab that $100 bill and run. Lot’s of things suck right now, but there’s plenty to remain grateful about. What are you grateful for? How are you holding up? Let me know, I’m interested in knowing.
