Walmart Employee Uses Her Break To Paint The Nails Of A Customer With Cerebral Palsy

Instead of going on her break Walmart employee Ebony Harris, 40, offered to paint Angela Peters’ nails for her. Angela Peter’s was denied service a a nail salon nearby because Peters, 36, has cerebral palsy a condition which can make her hands shake. The nail salon felt it would be too difficult to do her nails due to her condition. However, after Ebony found out, she wanted to create a special day for Angela. Harris helped Angela pick out a shade of sparkly blue that she liked and sat down at the Subway seating area inside the Walmart in Burton, Michigan and proceeded to paint her nails for her. Harris hopes this will inspire others to treat people with disabilities in the same way they would like to be treated. She wants the focus to be “not so much being mad at the nail salon.” Angela also agrees saying “I forgive the nail people for not doing my nails,” Peters told ABC News in a statement. “When people do us wrong we must forgive, if not we harbor bitterness. I don’t want anyone fired, I just [want to] educate people that people with different challenges like being in a wheelchair, we can have our own business and get our nails done like anyone else.”
