Joined Kingdom: A Tesco grocery store worker came to assist a 99-year-old war veteran who experienced difficulty purchasing the things on his shopping list with the exception of a brush after frenzy customers discharged the racks.
In a Facebook post that has since turned into a web sensation, 32-year-old Dan Scott from Essex disclosed how he came to organize a daily looking for Norman after he was left without nourishment supplies amidst the coronavirus franticness.
The zone administrator was left in tears when he saw that the elderly person needed to leave the shop with a vacant crate and Dan recommended to convey what he needs to his home.
In his Facebook post that got in excess of 35,000 offers, Dan stated:
‘Yesterday I met a man called Norman, he asked for some help with his shopping list. Sadly in these times I couldn’t get Norman anything off his list but a comb. I was devastated.
So I wrote down my number and asked him to call me with his list tomorrow, I will get it for him early and take it to him. Norman, being very humble, said he’d try again tomorrow and when I asked how he was getting home, he laughed and said he was driving.
HE’S 99 YEARS OLD!!! I was truly overcome with emotion when he left me and I thought, “how can this man not get any food?” He’s got a daughter but you can imagine her age. So I asked someone in Tesco to do me a shop overnight so that I could collect first thing.’
Dan says watching Norman leave the shop with practically nothing made himextremely upset and inquired as to whether they could extra to help those out of luck.
He continued saying:
‘Again, I was overwhelmed with the generosity of people we managed to get a huge hamper of food. Me and my colleague Carole surprised Norman with everything on his list and a lot more!
He was so grateful and said, “I’ll live like a king til I’m 100 now.” Please can people share this, so we get a message out there that people buying all these products and clearing the shelves is seriously stopping people like Norman from even eating.
‘All he wanted was bread, eggs, Marmite and some beans. It’s disgusting!!! He also told me today he had more food in the war…… think about that for a second.’
Dan closed his post with a message to all the frenzy customers out there.
‘I feel so happy today knowing Norman has food tonight, but how many more Normans are there right now because of the most selfish, disgusting people in this world!! Stay safe everyone, and look around you, people really need your help.’
Dan uncovered that Norman is a customary at the grocery store who is regularly helped by representatives when he does his shopping every Thursday.
The store was very busy on Thursday when he came in so I said for him to get a cuppa in the cafe and I’ll go off and do his list.
I couldn’t get him everything because the store was so busy the shelves were cleared. I cried. It was so emotional. I told him he shouldn’t be leaving the house so I gave him my number and told him to call me with what he needs.
He rang that afternoon and needed paracetamol so I delivered that to his house in my car and met him on the doorstep.’
However, Dan didn’t simply stop there.
‘My heart was breaking for him that he was 99 years old and couldn’t get any food. Hence I did a shop for him and asked my neighbours to help.
