(FOX NEWS) - A sweet moment between a Walmart employee and a handicapped customer is going viral on social media.
Angela Peters, who has cerebral palsy – a congenital disorder that can cause involuntary movements or tremors of arms, hands, legs and feet – was out shopping at the Walmart Supercenter in Burton, Mich., when she decided to get a manicure at the nail salon Da-Vi Nails inside the supercenter.
However, due to Peters’ condition, the nail technician allegedly refused her service because “she moves too much,” a nearby Subway employee, Tasia Smith, wrote on Facebook. The post has been liked nearly 5K times as of Monday evening.
Fortunately for Peters, her luck turned around. Ebony Harris, an employee at Walmart, learned of the situation and decided to help make Peters’ day “special.”
“I just wanted to make her day special. I didn’t really want her day to be ruined. That’s why I did it,” Harris told a local news station. “And plus she’s a sweetie,” she added.
