We can now officially celebrate the sheer kindness in the aisle of a Raleigh, North Carolina, Target store, which has gone viral with more than 55,000 likes on Facebook alone.
“I didn’t expect the kindness of strangers,” Audrey Mark, who took the photo, told ABC News. “You don’t expect humanity on aisle 11 of a big-box store.”
The quiet 15-year-old in the black suit was looking for a clip-on tie for his first job interview, but Target only sells regular ties. That’s when Dennis Roberts, Cyndi Moore and Cathy Scott came to his rescue.
And now, after two interviews with the Chick-fil-A restaurant at a mall near his home, ABC News knew something that Moore didn’t. He was going to get that first job.
“I think we are ready to offer you a job at the mall,” Chick-fil-A’s manager, David Langston, told a surprised Moore in the food court.
Out came the cameras and a few special guests from the Target store who were hiding, patiently waiting for him to get the good news.
“You look beautiful,” they told Moore, giving him big hugs.
When asked when he’ll actually start the new job, Langston replied:
“As soon as he is ready!” “I can start tomorrow,” Moore said, smiling ear to ear.
So we in the South prove once again what racists we are (snarky)…
RALEIGH (WTVD) — Do you remember going for your first ever job interview?
A Wake County teenager ran into a roadblock before he even got to his, and what happened next was caught on camera. Now, it’s going viral.
It all started with a picture at the Target store near Triangle Town Center.
Audrey Mark is a loyal target shopper, but Wednesday she noticed something different.
“I see this young teen being hovered over by this Target employee,” said Audrey. “So, as a mom of three teens, I go to ‘What did he do?'”
However, she noticed the employee fixing the teen’s tie, and because it seemed unusual, she snapped a picture.
“I hear him peppering him with all this advice on interview skills and handshakes,” said Audrey.
Target employee Cathy Scott said it all started when she saw a teenage customer looking for something.
“I asked him if he needed help and he told me he needed clip on ties,” said Cathy. “We didn’t have any.”
