Good Stuff This Week | Vol. 10

In a chaotic and uncertain world, it helps to remember that good things are happening around us all the time. We think it’s important to pay attention to the good stuff. Here’s a roundup of uplifting stories to cheer your heart.

Cable technician on work call ends up comforting distraught toddler

Rob Kinney, a Spectrum Internet technician in Greenville, South Carolina, was on a job to fix the internet connection for Jessica Donnahoo. She was having a hard day. She was home caring for her two-year-old daughter as well as her three-year-old son, Sailor, who is blind and has two rare brain conditions. When Kinney saw the crying boy, he went above and beyond the call of duty. The grateful mother wrote on Facebook:

“Dear Spectrum Internet,
Today your technician Robert came to our home to upgrade our internet and help us start up TV streaming. He walked into a mess. My son, Sailor, is three years old. He was born with two rare brain defects and he is blind. He is unable to communicate his needs, and today has been rough for him. He has been crying all morning. I’ve been trying to soothe him while also meeting the needs of my two year old daughter, cleaning, washing dishes, and doing laundry while my husband works. It’s just been a tough day. When Robert walked in and started talking, Sailor ran to him and reached up. Robert didn’t seem bothered at all and, instead, held my son off and on for the whole 45 minutes he was in our home. He snuggled him close while I folded laundry. It was a huge relief to this tired momma. Robert could have walked in, rushed, and left but instead he saw a need greater than internet and met it. That’s beyond customer service- it’s humanity at its best. Robert deserves a raise… a promotion… something! He’s an asset to your company and I will never forget his kindness.
