Despite the fact that the younger generations are constantly preaching about the “hustle” lifestyle, I don’t believe any of us can compete with this individual. Introduce yourself to Walter Carr, a young man from Alabama who was going to be late for his first day of work. Walter was hired as a moving company bellhop by Bellhops.
His first day at his new work was a disaster, to say the least.
A breakdown occurred in Walter’s car the night before his first day of work.
The timing couldn’t be worse.
A twenty-mile drive separated him from his destination. If any of us were in his shoes, it would be difficult not to give up hope.
Walter, on the other hand, did the reverse. He was determined to get to his new job, no matter how difficult the journey. The young man possessed a tenacity that is uncommon among persons his age and background.
He had only recently begun working at this company, and he was determined to keep it.
Those legs are in excellent working order. He was able to walk. Walter was traveling from Homewood to Pelham, where he would be spending his first day on the job. Once again, that’s a total of 20 kilometers.
Walter stuck to his idea, no matter how absurd it seemed at the time. He rested for four hours and then prepared for his travel. It was almost midnight when he realized it was time to get up.
He got up and started walking without looking back.
He wore Nike joggers because he was aware of the potentially tough terrain.
After a few hours of walking, Walter came face to face with a police officer. The officer inquired as to his whereabouts and why he was traveling on foot. The young man informed him that he was on his way to work in Pelham, which was a long-distance away.
This was enough to get the officer’s attention.
Walter was given breakfast by the officer, who also gave him a ride to Pelham.
Walter was now exactly where he needed to be. The officer accompanied him to the residence where the movers had been summoned. It was the Lamey family, and they were surprised when they answered the door a few hours before the movers were scheduled to arrive. It was Walter and the police officer that was involved.
A police officer informed them about “this nice boy” who had traveled 20 miles from his home in Homewood to his hometown of Pelham.
It was an unusual method to introduce the newcomer, but any other approach would have been inadequate to do him honor. Jenny Hayden Lamey was completely taken aback by Walter’s tenacity (as well as his stamina, of course) while on the job.
“It was around 6:30 a.m. when the doorbell rang. It was a member of the police force. In the following conversation, he informed us that he had picked up ‘this nice youngster’ in Pelham at an early hour of the morning. The sweetheart of the group. Walter informed us that he was scheduled to assist us with our move today.”
She welcomed him into the house and showed him around. Jenny offered to let Walter take a break upstairs, but he politely declined the offer.
The young man had come here to work, and that was exactly what he intended to do. This determination and hardworking exterior were nothing to be sneered at the time.
This was the company Walter had anticipated, and they didn’t waste any time in getting to work. Jenny found it to be really touching and moving (no pun intended).
Jenny’s family weren’t the only ones who held Walter’s efforts in high regard. Not everyone just walks 20 whole miles to their job when their car breaks down.
Luke Marklin, the CEO of Bellhops, met up with Walter himself.
He let him know that the journey was a big deal and really showed something about Walter’s character.
Any man who’d walk that far to do their job deserves special recognition. Hey, Walter, you mentioned your car broke down, right? I don’t suppose a new car would solve some of your problems?
Marklin gave Walter his 2014 Ford Escape.
Young Walter could hardly believe it.
“I’d like to give you this car right here. Today. Like right now. Like you can drive away with it,” Marklin told him.
Walter was taken aback by the gift.
His hard work and determination paid off in the best way possible. Now, he won’t ever be late or have to walk again. His determination truly is life-changing to witness, and it makes for a fantastic story.
