Here’s a heartwarming story that shows how small acts of kindness can mean the world to someone going through a tough time: When this group of middle school boys saw an old man sitting alone at a restaurant, they generously informed him of all the things he be lookin’ like.
Wow! Faith in humanity restored!
Earlier this week, four amazing kids stopped into a diner for lunch and spotted a sad-looking old man eating lunch all alone, and they immediately decided to go over and keep him company. For the better part of an hour, the boys took turns kindly letting the elderly man know what he resembled, from a “knock-off Mr. Peanut-lookin’ ass” to a “giant, shriveled ballsack with eyes” to a “cryptkeeper-lookin’ fuck.” Little did they know, the man was an 82-year-old widower who used to frequently eat at the diner with his late wife and was feeling especially lonely that day, surely making comments like “you be lookin’ like E.T. when he was white and dying” seem all the more meaningful.
“When we saw that old-ass ghoul eating all by himself, we knew we had to go let him know what was up,” said 12-year-old Ryan Sullivan, adding that the man smelled like piss. “He had that creepy pedophile look to him. That’s why he was probably eating alone, because no one wants to be friends with a pedophile. I told him he be lookin’ like an embalmed goblin and a stale-ass raisin and a bunch of other things, but he didn’t say anything back. He was just lookin’ down at his soup all sad like a bitch, so eventually we got bored and went away.”
Umm, is it dusty in here? Because we’re definitely tearing up a little.
While it only took a little bit of time for these kids to go talk to the old man, chances are he’ll remember them informing him that he resembled a “honky-ass Ebenezer Scrooge” for the rest of his days. The littlest gestures can have the biggest impact, and we should all strive to go out of our way for others just like these incredible middle schoolers.
