Every week, sanitation employee brings trash can back to the door of an elderly woman with limited mobility
By James Stratton
This story of a sanitation worker helping an elderly lady with limited mobility, reminds us of a classic movie scene.
“So shines a good deed in a weary world.” This is a fairly popular quote pulled right from The Bard himself, William Shakespeare, and more readily found in the classic movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
In that scene, Charlie hands back the Everlasting Gobstopper to Willy Wonka even after Wonka dresses down both Charlie and his Granpda Joe for their ‘fizzy lifting’ drink incident.
Wonka closes his hand over the returned treat and utters the line almost to himself. He then turns to Charlie beaming and we get the happy ending we were hoping for all along.
This idea can apply to the real world. It happens all the time and can make a world of difference.
A woman spotted a sanitation worker taking an elderly neighbors trash can right back to the side door of the house to which it belonged.
In speaking to her neighbor, the onlooker, Teresa Headley, learned that this worker does this every week.
This is due to the elderly neighbor having very limited mobility and while this small act of kindness may not make too big a difference to the average person, it makes a world of difference to this senior citizen.
Much like Charlie placing his Everlasting Gobstopper on Mr. Wonka’s desk altered his world, this man makes all the difference with this seemingly trivial act. His good deed continues to shine in this weary world.
