One man set out to collect 100 rejections in 100 days by asking random people what he thought were requests so unreasonable that they would unhesitatingly refuse to comply, and filming the process. He was stymied on the third day when a Krispy Kreme employee named Jackie went out of her way to accommodate him.
I could have told him that he would discover this. I find that there are plenty of people who will go to great lengths to help total strangers with no expectation of any benefit in return but simply out of the goodness of their hearts.
But that should not take away from the fact that Jackie seems like a real sweetheart.
