A photo has been making the rounds on the internet lately and for good reason!
It shows a Walmart employee sitting on the floor with an elderly woman leaning back against him. It appears that they are just chilling there.
The story goes like this according to Brittany McKee’s Facebook: She and her husband, Josh, were on their way back from a maternity check up when they decided to stop at Walmart in Evans, Georgia for a few things.
As they came close to the refrigerated section, they saw an elderly woman who had passed out, now sitting on the floor. Brittany is a registered nurse, so her trained instincts immediately kicked into high gear.
Her first thoughts were to stop, assess, and stay there to help any way she could. As she gradually regained full consciousness and could answer some questions, the woman informed Brittany that she was on blood thinners.
Dizziness and lightheadedness are common side effects of the improper use of blood thinners.
Walmart employees called 911 and stayed on the phone with dispatch as an ambulance was sent to their location. Brittany stayed there with her, her daughter who was standing by, and the helpful Walmart employees.
Brittany tried to get the woman to sit up and stay seated, but it proved to be difficult for her.
That’s when Jason, the unknown Walmart employee, got down on the floor and sat at her back to comfortably support her. He stayed just like that until the ambulance arrived.
Brittany was incredulous that a person would literally get on the ground to serve their customers without being asked. It showed this mans heart and kindness shining through in an often cruel world.
Well, it turned out that the man Jason is actually the manager of the Evans location! He has a rare dedication to not only serve his customers well but to be a kind human being as well.
“What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving,” Brittany wrote. “We are human beings, each and every one of us regardless of how much pigmentation our skin has or doesn’t have.”
“I couldn’t help but share because the media doesn’t seem to report this,” she continued. “The unity and the positive that occurs. This right here is real life, this is what it’s all about, not hate.”
Jason made himself an example of a true leader instead of just a boss. We need more humble leaders in our everyday lives and our jobs!
