The little girl wanted a doll for Christmas
By brendon.kennedy Story ID: 85
So I'm going to start off by saying that this story happened right before Christmas time. I lost my job, so I go around town doing odd jobs like painting and delivering food to the elderly people in town for a few extra bucks. Since it was almost christmas time, everyone has their family around and doesn't really need help.
I literally have 5$ in my pocket for lunch today. I'm in walmart buying one of their chicken parm sandwiches and a can of coke, when I walk up to mother and her daughter in line (the little girl had holes in her pants and a stained shirt), and her mother kept telling her to put the doll she was carrying down because they didn't have the money to pay for it, and that she's sorry that they have to postpone Christmas until she has the funds. bluhbluhbluh girl crying.
So I did the manly thing and put my lunch down and purchased the 4$ doll instead, and ran out to the parking lot to give it to the mother.
I got screamed at by the mother that her daughter doesn't need such a cheap toy, and that I should mind my own fucking business, plus calling me a pervert while I'm holding a doll trying to give it to her daughter.
I went back into the store and tried to return it, but guess what? no holiday refunds on toys.
BUT, I did give it to the mother of a little girl working in the nail salon, and that little girl was very grateful for the toy. And then the mother shared her lunch with me :) So a happy ending to the story but it still left me feeling strange.
