This situation has turned out to be an unexpected one!
Many have credited social media as an extremely powerful platform to connect people from all walks of life, and that is especially true for two mothers from Alabama – after an incident at their local movie theatre. The two women got to know each other personally after one of the women apologized for her daughters’ “rude and obnoxious” behavior via Facebook, days after the matter had happened.
Kyesha Smith Wood had allowed her son, daughter and step-daughter to go watch Cinderella at their local movie theater. However, the two girls were laughing and talking loudly throughout the movie, and even kicked Rebecca Boyd’s seat.
“I turned around and I said, ‘You know girls, we paid for this movie just like you did. Could you guys keep it down?’ They just laughed. After I spoke to them, they seemed to not care. They just laughed in my face,” Boyd recalls.
After the movie has ended, Wood’s son told her about his two sisters’ misconduct. This has led her to utilise social media to locate Boyd herself. Embarassed by her daughters’ behaviour, Wood has expressed her sincere apologies to make it up to Boyd and her daughter.
“After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her.”
Thanks to Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page where they had shared Wood’s post, the viral story has since generated more than 250,000 likes! Boyd then contacted Wood after seeing the shared post.
After meeting Boyd in person, Wood also passed the apology letter which her daughters had written, along with some of their allowance meant for Boyd’s next movie trip. Since then, both families have even became great friends!
