Walmart cashier steps in to paint disabled woman's nails after salon refuses

After being turned away at a nail salon in a Walmart in Michigan Angela Peters met a complete stranger who offered to do her nails

After being turned away at a nail salon in a Walmart in Michigan Angela Peters met a complete stranger who offered to do her nails

But that's how Walmart cashier Ebony Harris spent her break during a shift last week after learning a woman with cerebral palsy had been refused service at a nail salon within the Walmart in Burton, Mich., because her hands shake.

Ebony Harris skipped her break during a recent shift at a Walmart in Burton, Michigan, to help Angela Peters.

Sitting next to her new friend at her store inside Collette's Vintage and Antique Mall, Peters said she's grateful not only for Harris' help, but a lovely manicure too. "I don't want anyone fired, I just [want to] educate people that people with different challenges like being in a wheelchair can have our own business and get our nails done like anyone else".

Harris said after she found out, she wanted to create a special day for Angela. "I've helped her shop a couple of times". She's just like you, me, Tasia, my daughter, anybody.

Together, the two picked out some polish and relaxed in the seating area at Subway for a manicure. "Her service to customers defines the spirit of Walmart, and we couldn't be more proud".

A woman who works in the Subway restaurant, Tasia Smith, saw the nail painting session. We're not surprised at her act of kindness.

Ms Diamond said: "This means there is an increased likelihood of warmer-than-average temperatures and below-average rainfall".

In response to the experience, Angela wrote on Facebook that she "forgives" the nail salon for seeing her.

Harris said she appreciates all the attention the story has been receiving.

"I'm like wow. These are wonderful!" she said. "It makes me feel good, but it's very overwhelming".

"I just wanted to post [the photo] for awareness and appreciation, because people needed to know what was going on with the business, and Ebony deserved all the appreciation she could get", Tasia said.

Harris has no qualms with the nail salon, but she hopes her actions inspire others to treat people with disabilities the way they would want to be treated themselves. She wants the focus to be "not so much being mad at the nail salon". Harris said: "No matter the person, who they are, what color they are, disability, whatever, they're people, too".
