BESSEMERE, AL – Here’s an example of how rude beginnings can sometimes lead to happy outcomes.
It all started during the screening of the new Cinderella movie in McCalla, Alabama when two girls were rude and obnoxious to some other moviegoers.
And the next thing you know, it’s on Facebook, where Kyesha Wood, the mother of the rude girls, reached out to their victims.
“My son later told me, much to my humiliation and embarrassment, that my girls were rude and obnoxious during the movie. The woman I'm looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful.”
Turns out the other mother, Rebecca Boyd told the girls that her husband had just been laid off, and this probably was the last movie she would share with her daughter for a long time.
The local sheriff’s department picked up Wood’s Facebook post and shared Rebecca Boyd saw it and reached out to Wood.
“She's the most gracious, and kind and forgiving woman,” Wood said. “I am so humbled by that but I've been telling people the real hero of the story, I've been getting a lot of attention. The real hero is her. It is Miss Boyd. And the reason that I say that is because she took it upon herself to correct my girls and one else around them did.”
Tens of thousands of people online learned about the rude girls. Not good for them. Not only will they have to write an apology to Boyd and her daughter, they’ll also have to use their allowance money to buy them tickets for another trip to the movies.
