Everyone in life is going through a battle that others don't know about. Therefore, it is important that people show up for each other in every way possible. It is essential for a healthy world that individuals do everything possible in their hands to make life a little bit easier for others. This is what the homeowner in this viral video uploaded by u/Sans010394 attempted to do when she saw the struggles of delivery drivers who visited her home regularly. The job of a delivery boy is far from easy. They have to suffer a lot in terms of weather and people's attitudes. Hence, when someone extends a kind gesture to them, it truly means a lot to them. This was evident in the delivery driver's grateful reaction in the video.

The video began with the delivery driver in complete shock at seeing what the homeowner has done for him. The overlay text reads, "He couldn't believe his eyes." Thereafter, he began looking through all the stacks to get what he needed for his journey. The delivery driver was aware that many others were in the same boat as him, working hard through the entire day and wanted to leave enough for them. After slowly making his way through all of them, he chose to take some chocolates, snacks and juice.

The driver still couldn't believe that someone did this for him and asked, "Is this right?" in front of the ring camera. This gesture touched him so much that he could not help but express his gratitude. He stated, "You guys are so nice, every time I deliver here. It's so awesome." The delivery driver's reaction indicates that maybe most places do not provide him with the same kindness as this one. He goes on to add, "You guys are like the nicest people I have delivered to."

The comments section loved the whole interaction and expressed that such actions should be encouraged towards all service employees. It is a tough job and a small amount of kindness goes a long way. u/appealouterhaven shared their own similar experience and commented, "I'll always remember working for FedEx, baking in the step van with no AC, lugging boxes of Chewy up driveways along Lake Winnebago's eastern shore. I was starting to feel faint and it was early evening. A young kid, maybe 8 years old, comes running up behind me and hands me two bottles of cold water. It made my day." u/J_Pendragon96 feels hopeful seeing this gesture and wrote, "I cannot tell you after going through COVID as a FedEx driver and all the truly horrible people who treated me like c**p for the last few years, seeing the turnaround with these amazing people leaving things like food and drinks for us drivers. I have this amazing person in Stafford, VA, who literally has premade hot chocolate in a thermos on their porch for drivers during December."

Such wholesome moments reinstate faith in humanity and make the world a better place. u/Rheinmetal also uploaded a video where people gifted their U.P.S. lady a vest. The joy on her face was so infectious that it could light anyone's day up. The woman was so happy that she began dancing, showing off her suave vest to everyone.
