Alaska police officer Marcos Weinrick recently posted a story online that has gone viral. In it, he explains of a unexpected response from his neighbor after spilling a gallon of milk in his driveway.
Read his post below.
I woke up this morning and hit the ground running, trying to finish up all my errands before I start the work week tomorrow. I skipped breakfast, got the pup out, made it to the gym and took care of a few other things. By 2:45 this afternoon I was finally headed home and realized that I had not eaten all day. I planned on mixing a protein shake when I got home and calling it good. I realized I didn’t have milk at home though, so I swung by the store.
After accidentally buying $100 worth of groceries, and a gallon of milk I made it home. Kona was in the backseat and the school across the street was getting out, so I wanted to make sure she didn’t run up to any kids to say hi.
As I opened the back door of my truck, the gallon of milk fell out and splattered all over my driveway.. the one thing I needed, and the one thing I had gone to the store for of course would be the one thing that breaks and spills. I cleaned up the mess and about 30 minutes later, a young girl, with a gallon of milk in her arms rang my doorbell.
Her dad was picking her up from school and they saw my milk accident. She said it was a very small token of appreciation for all we do as police officers and all we do as a department. Her dad simply wanted to say thank you for our service and dedication. I never knew a gallon of milk would be what made my day, but it certainly did today.
A much-needed reminder of the great people we have in this city, and why we do this job! Proud to serve this community!
