Now, Adrianna Edwards can easily save time by driving back and forth to work. The laborious commute that took her over 5 hours will now only take 30 minutes.
A waitress from Texas was at a loss of words after two strangers decided to surprise with a brand new car to help make her life a little easier. It takes Adrianna Edwards over four hours to walk to and from her workplace at a Denny's restaurant in Galveston. Traveling nearly 14 miles every day is hectic as it is but making that journey on foot is almost impossible to imagine— sadly it had been the only way she could bear the expenses. "I have bills to pay," Edwards told CNN affiliate KTRK. "I've got to eat. You've got to do what you've got to do."
But thing are looking quite bright for the young woman, whose days of walking are finally over. On Tuesday, like any other day, Edwards made her way towards the restaurant and began catering to her customers. The generous couple who helped turn her life around happened to be sitting in her section during breakfast. While serving the pair, Edwards happened to share her story with them about how she has been saving money to buy a new car, not knowing that they would be the answer to her commute problem.
People like her deserves everything. I could never imagine myself walking such a distance to get to work. This story makes me feel grateful for what I have but it also makes me admire her very much. I hope she achieves all what she's working for.— Ana. (@ananneannie) 29 November 2019
After finishing their meal, the couple left the eatery only to return a few hours later and hand Edwards the key to her new 2011 Nissan Sentra that they had just purchased at Classic Galveston Auto Group. "She teared up, which made me happy that she was so moved by that," expressed the woman who presented her the car. Now, Edwards can easily save time by driving back and forth to work. The laborious task that used to take her nearly five hours will now only take 30 minutes.
Initially, Edwards assumed that it was a prank, according to ABC7. "In my head, I was like 'Pranks are cool and everything, but this one seems a tad bit cruel,'" she recalled. Apart from cutting down on her traveling time, the vehicle will also help Edwards start college earlier than she had originally thought. Edwards still feels like she's in a beautiful dream. "I still feel like I'm dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there's still a car there," she added.
It’s very generous of them, but Texas needs to improve public transportation. Also, the car isn’t new. It’s almost 9 years old. The cost of service and repairs begin mounting at this age.— Samir Madani 🛢 (@Samir_Madani) 29 November 2019
The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, requested Edwards to pay this good deed forward in return for the car. Edwards who had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgivings intends to do the exact thing and help others in need. "When I see somebody in need, I'll probably be more likely to help them out (and) to do everything that I can to help them out," she said according to the outlet. "I just hope that one day when I’m financially stable enough, I can help somebody else in need."
