“I was thinking, ‘Wait, what?'” No. “This can’t possibly be true!”
Having a furnace breakdown during a major snowstorm is bad enough, but when you throw a newborn baby into the mix, the situation becomes ten times worse!
Jesse and Maria Hulscher of Willmar, Minnesota were distraught when their furnace stopped operating shortly after the birth of their son Adler. They worked frantically to get the furnace repaired as quickly as possible.
Because of a storm expected, dad Jesse realized that he needed to get things done as soon as possible.
“I panicked right away,” Jesse admitted to FOX 9. This was before the big possible snowstorm hit, and I’ve got a two-year-old here and a newborn coming home in a few days.”
Because of the pleasant weather recently, we were able to fill our Hulscher foursome! Adler Stephen, welcome to the tee (and to the world)…..

The trouble was that Maria was still in the hospital with Adler, so Jesse was left to deal with everything on his own.
He dialed the number of a local company, Magnuson Sheet Metal, in the hopes of receiving a speedy and inexpensive fix. Jesse couldn’t get his emotions under control as he explained his predicament to the man on the phone. His enthusiasm for the new baby was tempered by his apprehension about the approaching snowfall.
In the words of Magnuson co-owner Craig Aurand: “He stated something to the effect of ‘the fan’s not functioning; the furnace’s not working; my wife is in the hospital, and we just delivered a baby yesterday.” “I simply told you to take it easy, and we’ll be right there.”
Magnuson dispatched a service technician to repair the furnace the very next morning, and everything was back to normal within an hour of his arrival.
Jesse and Maria both exhaled a sigh of relief at the same time. Everything else had been taken care of except for paying the bill.
A surprise awaited the couple when the invoice arrived in the mail! The invoice contained a shocking surprise!
It read, “no charge, please take care of the new kid,” Jesse recalled when he opened it up and glanced at the receipt. “I was thinking, ‘Wait, what?'” No. This can’t possibly be true. “And he’s like, ‘I know, I can’t even believe it either,'” Maria recalled the conversation.
Jesse and Maria were so touched by the small business’ act of generosity that they decided to post the invoice on Jesse’s Facebook page as a way of expressing their gratitude.
Within a few days, the post had received over 3.9k reactions, as well as hundreds of shares, and it continues to grow.
They have provided excellent service, with prompt response times and fantastic staff. I cannot thank them enough.” Customers who patronize businesses like these are loyal for life!” Jesse stated this in his blog article.
Although they have received a great deal of positive publicity, the owners of Magnuson Sheet Metal maintain a humble attitude regarding their generosity.
“We didn’t do it for the publicity; we simply did it because we wanted to be decent people.” That’s all there is to it. “I’m just trying to be polite to these people,” Craig explained.” “That’s what this is all about,” says the author.
Craig is exactly the type of person the world needs more of! Watch the couple’s interview by scrolling down to the bottom of this page.
