This cable technician is being praised for going above and beyond the call of duty after he arrived at the home of a stressed-out mother and her wailing toddler.
Earlier this month, Jessica Nash Donnahoo had been having a particularly hard day with her 3-year-old son Sailor. She had been trying to finish her household chores and simultaneously care for her 2-year-old daughter while her husband was at work – but her tasks were made all the more difficult by the fact that Sailor had been crying all morning.
Because Sailor suffers from blindness and two rare brain defects, he has a hard time communicating his needs. To Donnahoo’s surprise, however, she was given an unlikely reprieve from her parenting duties when Rob Kinney walked in through the door.
Kinney, who works as a cable technician for Spectrum, had been called to fix the internet in their Greenville, South Carolina home.
Immediately after he walked in through the door, Sailor ran up to the repairman and held up his arms – and to Donnahoo’s surprise, Kinney happily responded by scooping Sailor into his arms.
Kinney then spent the next 45 minutes rocking and soothing the youngster while he fixed the internet. By the time he was ready to leave, Sailor was almost asleep.

What a tech! Not only fixes the internet, but does it while soothing a disabled child to sleep.
I hope when such an opportunity presents itself to me, I’ll have the grace that this tech did to accept it.
Can’t believe everything you hear about how terrible humans are to each other.
