Good News: Old Workers, Old Vases, and Kind Radio DJs

Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .

1.  Some lady asked Dear Abby for advice about a radio DJ she borderline STALKED when she was a kid in the 1980s.

She’s in her mid-50s now and had some undiagnosed issues back then.  She used to call in at least once per show, and he always talked to her.  She says he was nothing but kind.

Now she wants to reach back out with a letter, thanking him for being there when she needed someone to talk to.  But she’s worried it might come across as creepy.

Dear Abby’s advice was to send the letter.  He’d probably love to know he “made such a profound difference in [her] life.”  (Agree?)

2.  A woman from D.C. bought a vase at a thrift store for $4, and recently found out it was an ancient Mayan artifact from over 2,000 years ago.  But instead of selling it, she gave it back to Mexico so it can go to a museum.

She joked she was just relieved to get it out of her house, because she has three young boys who probably would have broken it.

3.  On Memorial Day last month, a woman in Louisiana met an Air Force vet named Dillon McCormick, who was working in 90-degree heat at age 90(!!!)

She saw him gathering carts in a Winn-Dixie parking lot and asked why he hadn’t retired yet.  He said he couldn’t afford to.  So she posted the footage online . . . started a GoFundMe trying to raise $30,000 to help him out . . . and people donated over 240 GRAND.

It hit $170,000 overnight, and she called to tell him the good news the next day . . . but he hung up, thinking she was a scammer.  So she went to his place and told him in person.  (Here’s the first video, and here she is telling him.)

He says he’s grateful to the more than 3,000 people who donated . . . but last we heard, he still hadn’t retired(???)  He decided he doesn’t want to quite yet.  But now he can whenever he’s ready.
