The internet, smartphones, smartwatches, etc. all make us more connected, but disconnected at the same time.
You might have several Internet Interactions with Strangers a day, but would you feel any of them especially impressed???
A man who put up an old VHS player (VCR) for sale on eBay received the Most Wonderful Letter of Appreciation from an 86-year-old man. This Man’s Trash became Another Man’s Treasure in the way they probably never imagined, which is why what happened next was all the more special.
“Thank you so much for your care, your efforts and your promptness,” the Man wrote.
The seller posted a Photo of the Letter on reddit, where it has received more than 160,000 likes.
The 86-year-old Recipient of the VHS player said it was the 1st time he had used the site but had found “many old VHS tapes recently and wanted to see what is on them.” The man said at first he had some Technical Difficulties which he blamed on his age stating he was “perhaps not up to my game.”
With the help of his new device, he discovered beautiful relics from the past of his “wedding with all the family and friends, many of which are no longer around. Then skiing strips, kids growing up travels, and more importantly the gentle maturing of my family.”
The story was so touching that eBay replied to the story that “connecting people to the things they love is why we exist”.
The seller added that he plans on writing the old man back and offering to digitize his Videos for him!!!
