I was asked if I am any good with phones
by an elderly man
as he was trying to open a picture message
that his granddaughter had sent.
I took a look at his phone
which was a really old Nokia.
As he didn’t have a smart phone
I told him that he wouldn’t be able to view it.
He was gutted
and went on to tell me
that it was a photo of his granddaughter and her new baby
who he hadn’t seen yet
as they live in another city.
I forwarded the message to my phone
and eventually managed to open the picture.
He was so emotional seeing his great granddaughter for the first time
and you could see his love for them both through his teary eyes.
The man insisted on giving me £20
to treat my daughter to a toy
as a thank you for helping him,
which I insisted I didn’t want,
but he was having none of it.
So, I asked him to wait there
and I went to boots and printed the photo for him
and ended up buying a frame for it too.
When I returned with the framed photo,
he was so happy,
literally overwhelmed .
This just made my day to make someone so happy.
