business news in context, analysis with attitude

ABC News has a lovely story about how one Walmart cashier in Burton, Michigan, went above and beyond the call of duty.

What happened was this: Angela Peters, a customer suffering from cerebral palsy and using a wheelchair, was in a nearby nail salon where they refused to do her nails because her hands were shaking too much. When Ebony Harris, the Walmart cashier, found out that one of her store’s regular customers had been treated this way, she decided to do something about it.

So, she went with Peters to Walmart’s cosmetics department, chose a color she liked, and then used her break to do her nails for her. When another customers saw what was happening, she posted a picture on social media, and the story went viral.
