“I worked all summer long. So I told my mum that she didn’t have to spend a dime on my school supplies this year.”
The woman’s husband walked straight to the young man and shook his hand for a job well done as he asked him to keep up the hard work.
As a reward, he paid for all the shopping of the young man. Keri said that she did not make the post to show off her husband but to share the positive thing the young man did to help his mother.
