Marlo Matthews works at Chopper City Barbershop in Memphis, Tennessee. While he has plenty of loyal customers, one of them has a very special story:
“The man in the chair is Mr. Earl….Mr. Earl lives in the assisted living home next door to the shop, he has a memory disease that if you tell him something today he forgets, so if you tell him again tomorrow it’s like new information to him….his brother used to come to the shop and pay me every week to cut his hair. Then later Mr. Earl would come and ask me did his brother pay me so he can get a cut, I would always say yes sir your debt is already paid….Mr. Earl’s brother died 5 years ago and he doesn’t remember, he still comes every week and always asks me is his debt paid….I ALWAYS STILL SAY YES SIR, YOUR DEBT IS PAID and cut his hair….I know Mr. Earl’s brother is in heaven looking down watching out for us. THAT’S PAYMENT ENOUGH…some things are better than money….AMEN”
Kudos to Marlo for such a beautiful gesture!
