Sorry, Wrong Number
Many of us have been in the typical “sorry I think you have the wrong number” situation. These scenarios typically play out with a friendly apology and the conversation ends there. This was certainly not the case for the Lashley family and Dennis Williams. Williams broke the typical etiquette for “wrong number” scenarios and gave a new mom and dad a heartwarming surprise.
Shortly after giving birth to a baby boy, a friend of the Lashley family sent out a group message to friends and family informing them of the wonderful news. For an unknown reason, one of the phone numbers in the group message list belonged to a complete stranger named Dennis Williams.
When Williams got this text message, he responded by asking for the hospital’s address and the room number in which they could find the new parents. Williams and a friend made a quick stop at the gift store before showing up to congratulate the Lashleys. They showed up with gifts for the newborn baby and the parents!
This story certainly puts a twist on the typical “wrong number” scenario, but exemplifies how a small act of kindness can make a positive impact on the lives of others. Let’s all learn from Mr. Williams and his friend; we thank them for the inspiration. And of course, from the team here at Inspire Conversation, congratulations to the Lashley family upon the birth of their son.
