What started as every employee’s worst nightmare had a pretty happy ending for Walter Carr, 20, a college student from Alabama.
The night before Carr’s first day on the job, his 2003 Nissan Altima broke down.
He called his friends and his girlfriend to try to get a ride, but nothing worked out. He checked his GPS and saw that without a car it would take him about 7 hours to get from his house in Homewood, Alabama, to the town of Pelham for his first day at Bellhops moving company.
He decided to walk.
Carr started his 20-mile trek sometime around midnight.
“I wanted to be there before 8,” he said. “I wanted to beat the crew members there to let the company know how dedicated I am.”
