Guy Notices a Strange Jeep At Walmart For a Few Weeks. So He Proceeds To Confront The Driver.

Week after week Jake Holloway noticed the same silver Jeep Wrangler parked outside the local Walmart and Target stores he frequented in Altoona, Iowa.  Every time he spotted it, he wondered why it was always in either one of the two store parking lots, but a passing though was as far as his curiosity got him. 

Then one day Jake happened to park very close to the Jeep and that was when he spotted an “I served” sticker in the window. Upon seeing this he decided to reach out to the car owner and see what the story was.

After knocking on the Jeep window the door swung open and a man named Nick, the owner of the Wrangler, was staring back at Jake.  To start a conversation Jake complimented him on his car and he soon learned all about how Nick had come to the very spot they were sitting in.  

It turned out that Nick was a veteran who had just returned form his fourth and final tour of Iraq.  When he had arrived home, he found out that his wife was leaving him and with no job, no money, and no place to stay, he had ended up living in his car while looking for work.  The only two things he still had with him were his Jeep and his loyal best friend, a Boxer dog who lived alongside him.  

For the past couple of weeks he’d been looking for work and struggling to feed himself and his dog, but things were finally starting to look up.  He had recently gotten a job at the Department of Transportation but wouldn’t be paid for another week which was why he was still in his Jeep.

After talking to Nick, Jake was moved by his story and decided to share it online.  He wrote on Facebook about how after serving our country, Nick was left with nothing but his Jeep and dog.  He stuck to the bare facts and embellished nothing, hoping to get across the helplessness of the whole situation. 

Since it was around the holidays, Nick suggested that if people wished to do something to help others, they should reach out and help this veteran in their very own community who could use their help the most.

Jake’s post was shared far and wide and within hours the people of Altoona came out to offer whatever assistance they could.  They brought gift cards, food for Nick and his Boxer, and even a fully paid week-long stay at a hotel for both him and his dog.  

In the end, Nick seemed to have been gifted everything he would have needed before he got his first paycheck.  This was all thanks to one man who noticed his Jeep with the veteran sticker and who decided to check on him. Jake cared enough to see how Nick, a complete stranger at the time, was doing, and encouraged others to help him out.

Mother With Disabled Daughter Goes To Walmart! Then She Discovers Disturbing Letter On Her Windshield!

Stacy Barlow, a 43 year old mother of seven from Levittown, Pennsylvania, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at a relatively young age. She did her best to stay strong and as healthy as possible for her family, but some days were a struggle. Just recently she had to call her fiancé, Jeff, and have him pick her up at the store because her legs had cramped up while walking around.

Most people know Parkinson’s Disease by the outward symptoms such it causes, such as shaking and trembling, slow movements, and difficulty with balance and walking. It affects the part of the brain that controls how your body moves and while it’s more common in older people past the age of 60, it can appear at any age. While there is no cure, the symptoms can be mitigated and managed with proper medical care. Even though Stacy didn’t always have the telltale tremors, her symptoms would often suddenly appear out of nowhere.

On this particular day Stacy had gone out to Walmart where she ended up parking in a handicapped spot with her hang tag clearly displayed on the rear view mirror. At the time, she had already undergone one brain surgery operation and had another one scheduled less than a month away.

After she had parked, Stacy headed right inside to Walmart where she planned on picking up some goods that she needed and doing a little grocery shopping for her family. She had brought her seven year old daughter along with her and neither of them noticed anything out of place when they arrived.

After checking out and leaving the store the pair walked back outside to the car. That’s when they noticed a white napkin stuck in the windshield under a wiper. Stacy grabbed it and saw that it was a note. When she read it, she was shocked and surprised to see that it said, “You are not disabled PIG.” As if that wasn’t bad enough, her car had also been keyed with deep scratches down the side.

Stacy couldn’t help but wonder why anyone would do such a thing. Just because her disability wasn’t blatantly obvious and she didn’t use a wheelchair or have a cane, it didn’t mean she was any less deserving to park in the spot. To leave such a nasty note and ruin her car was beyond rude and mean, it was just evil.

Later on she showed the note to Jeff and after snapping a picture he posted it online to Facebook. When Stacy read the comments, she noticed how mean some of them were, but then the positive ones started to come in and they soon drowned out the bad. People were offering their support and she felt better to see that there was a lot of understanding and compassion out there.

Fortunately, Walmart security cameras did manage to capture the person who was responsible for damaging her car and leaving the nasty note. However, the police are still trying to identify them. Hopefully they saw the news and learned that they targeted a person who was wholly undeserving of their uncalled for actions. Just because a person does not look outwardly handicapped doesn’t mean that they are not going through some tough health issues.

This Man Found A Toy Guitar In Walmart. The Song He Plays With It Blew Me Away!

Whenever you step into a Walmart a chaotic and loud scene usually greets you. It can get really hectic in the store between children running wild, their parent’s yelling at them, people walking way too slow, and all the other odd sights and sounds that bombard your senses. However, a video has emerged that shows there may be something good and positive to associate with Walmart.

Clay Shelburn and Zac Stokes uploaded the awesome YouTube video that shows them performing on a toy guitar in the Barbie aisle at 3 o’clock in the morning. The self professed “Walmart Rockstars” go to town on a bluesy acoustic-style rendition of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s hit song Pride and Joy.

Clay starts strumming the dinky little red guitar and immediately you know that he can play. I have never heard a toy guitar sound this good, or even knew they were capable of sounding so pleasing.

Both boys take turns doing vocals and they deliver a pretty solid performance. This is easily the best thing yet to come out of a 24 hour Walmart at 3a.m.! Both boys are from Fort Worth, Texas and are members of bands that bear their names.

When they aren’t doing gigs at Walmart the Texas musicians perform at shows all around the area. They clearly have talent and love for their art, so be sure to check them out if you’re into bluesy, country, southern rock music!
