Small acts of kindness can make all the difference, and one elderly man’s thoughtful gesture towards his young neighbour has left many netizens rather touched. As a sweet morning ritual to kickstart each week, the old man hands over a special bun to a young medical student, and now the video of him of him doing so has left people moved.
While most may find it hard to fight Monday blues, Dina Mehmedović’s 90-year-old neighbour helps her start the week on a wholesome note, by getting her sticky buns. Sharing a video on TikTok, the young medical student explained that the man used to go to the grocery store at 8 am earlier, but now makes it a point to go around 6 am in order to bring back the buns to her, before she leaves for her class.
In the video, viewers can see the man handing out a box to her with a heartwarming smile. “There you are! I was waiting for my sticky buns!” she is heard saying in the clip, and thanks him for the treats. “Okie dokie!” the man says before waving goodbye to her.
“Every. Single. Monday. I don’t deserve him,” she wrote on TikTok sharing the clip. She posted the video on her Twitter profile as well, where she said: “I don’t deserve this angel of a human”.
