He walks 20 miles to go to work and his boss gives him his own car to thank him

October 31, 2019 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

When Walter Carr, a 20-year-old university student, got a new job as a mover at the Bellhops Moving company, he was really happy.

After so many job applications and interviews, he would finally have a job and a salary to help fulfill his dreams.

But the evening before his first day of work, what should not have happened - of course, happened! 

Namely, Walter's car, an old Nissan, just simply broke down and stopped working! This left, the young man, on foot, and unable to reach the place where he was supposed to make his very first move the next morning.

After trying to ask friends for a ride and receiving only negative answers, for Walter the only thing to do at that point was to walk.

So, at midnight, he set off intending to walk from Homewood to Pelham, Alabama which is a distance of about 20 miles (32 km) and the equivalent of a good eight hours of walking!

Fortunately for Walter, however, this long and tiring journey also proved to be a journey in which he witnessed compassion, kindness, and courtesy.  In fact, after arriving in Hoover, the young man was assisted by a police officer who, noting Walter's fatigue and the late hour, took him - at the police officer's own expense - to get something to eat at an all-night diner and then left him in a safe place, namely, a church.

The young man, did want to rest or go to sleep so he immediately resumed his march towards Pelham.

After walking for a while, the young man was found by another police officer, who gave him a ride for the last 4 miles (6 km) to the client's house that was to be moved that day.

Arriving at the house where Walter was scheduled to carry out his moving assignment, the police agent explained everything to the Bellhop company client, Jenny Lamey.

The woman was immediately moved when she realized everything that Walter had done just to make sure that he was there to start moving on time that morning. 


The woman, at that point, naturally offered the young man the chance to rest and to start moving a bit later. 

But Walter, more determined than ever, insisted on starting immediately. Thus, the young man completed his work, and Jenny, surprised and moved by the young man's kindness and tenacity, decided to create a GoFundMe page on Facebook to help Walter pay to get his car repaired.

But the real surprise, for the 20-year-old young man, was still to come. His story, in fact, came to the knowledge of Bellhops CEO Luke Marklin.

Without the need to even think about it, the manager decided to thank Walter in a very special way.

In fact, Marklin drove to where Walter was working and personally presented the special award! And what did it consist of?

To be exact, the special award was Marklin's own car, a Ford Escape, but a much more recent one, more modern and in better condition than the old car that was not able to even get Walter to work.

It is not difficult to imagine the emotion and amazement felt by the young man at that moment. Besides, who would ever expect such a gift from their new boss?!

This a story that certainly shows us how much good there is in the world in general and in the people around us in particular! These compassionate actions inspire us to add our own generosity and kindness to help continue to spread these good vibrations around!
