WOW story: just for the sake of being nice.

The universe works in mysterious ways. Have you ever had a song stuck in your head only to turn on the radio and hear that exact song? This month’s featured WOW story demonstrates the uncanny ability Rubys have to read a situation more perfectly than they even meant to.

Pearl receptionist Fletcher connected a call through to Jason. Jason had some choice words about the particular caller Fletcher had on the line. He joked that it’s difficult to step in when this caller is on a roll and he just didn’t have the hour her call would inevitably take.

Clearly Jason was busy and perhaps even a bit stressed. Fletcher knew he could help out!

He cruised over to Amazon and found just what the doctor ordered—a wacky desk toy to help Jason fidget through his next hour-long call with grace.

The timing of Fletcher’s gift could not have been better—Jason received the desk toy just as his mother was undergoing a difficult medical procedure.


Thank you. I talk to and work with quite a few people on a daily basis and they aren’t always pleasant. In the end, I think it’s really great that someone takes the time to do something nice just for that sake of being nice. Our world would be a kinder place with more thoughtful people and Fletcher should be recognized for his actions. I truly appreciate it.

Just so everyone knows, the day I received the gift from Fletcher, my mother was undergoing a procedure and so the gesture was appreciated even more and distracted me from the difficult day. It’s funny how the little things can make such a big difference. Thank you again.


Nice just for the sake of being nice…precisely! Kindness perpetuates kindness and while it might come naturally to you, it could mean the world to someone else.
