Let’s take a moment to appreciate people’s effort during these hard times we’ve been living in the past year.
Front-liners continue to work every day while we stay safe at home. Along the way, there are many sacrifices that they have to make to ensure that our essential services continue to operate.
One of these services is food delivery, as many of us staying indoors will come to rely upon for meals every day. As a result, food deliverymen wind up working around the clock during this period, sparing no expense to deliver all meals we ordered to our doorstep.
A Pleasant Story For A Man’s Birthday
A food deliveryman in Wuhan, China, apparently had loads of work. The Covid-19 pandemic has made his schedule incredibly busy. He couldn’t even take time out of his work to celebrate his birthday.
However, people who want to brighten up somebody’s day will do everything to succeed in their intentions.
So, one kind, anonymous customer who was using the food delivery service decided that the time for a pleasant surprise has come.
The customer coincidentally wanted to extend a kind gesture to the food deliveryman as a form of appreciation. He decided to order a cake for him. Of course, he had no idea that it was his birthday!
Collecting The Small Gift
The delivery driver had no idea what exactly was going on, and he went to collect the cake as instructed.
But upon reaching the cashier, he was told that the cake he received, was a gift for him on behalf of his customer!
The man was left speechless. Completely moved, he even asked the cashier numerous times if there had been a mistake. Moreover, he asked her whether if she was sure that the cake was for him.
The cashier claimed:
“He kept asking if someone really bought the cake for him, and I told him each time, yes. Someone bought the cake for you.”
Certainly, there is no doubt that small acts of kindness can indeed make someone’s day.
The note from the customer said:
“I ordered one extra piece for the food deliveryman. Please remember to eat on time.”
Overwhelmed by his emotions, the food deliveryman left the bakery holding his birthday cake. He sat down on the nearest stairs.
In the next moment, the man broke down in tears as he wished himself a happy birthday by the side of a street. After that, he even blew out his birthday candle.
This video was originally shared over the Chinese social media platform, Weibo.
It went viral instantly, and many people admitted that they were touched by the incredibly sweet gesture.
