Meeting MS Cunningham/ a Delightful surprise

Posted August 26, 2018 from Canada

I was travelling this summer and had the delightful experience of meeting a woman who works at a walmart. I was making a purchase and also needed some assistance with some product information and help in the store. A woman kindly offered to help she works there and is an asset to the store as I see it after my experience. We got to talking and she shared some of her story and history working there. She has worked at walmart for 21 years. 

She related to me she went through school and was passed without being able to read and struggles to read and write. She went through the Good will training program which was a valuable experience and got the position at walmart 21 years ago and still works there today.

I was astounded by her kindness her work ethic and her story and very impressed with her. She gave me her address and I will write her and keep in touch.

In life there are many surprises this was a truly delightful one
