Twist of Fate

Sometimes a twist of fate is exactly what a person needs to learn an important lesson.  This story is about a man in a wheelchair that was a video on Facebook.  A man was leaving a building when another man banged into him and spilled his coffee.  The walking man was instantly rude telling him he shouldn’t have been in his way.  The walking man continued yelling and walked into the street. He wasn’t paying attention and suddenly the wheelchair man was yelling at him to get out of the way.  Unfortunately, he was struck by the vehicle.  He landed in the hospital being unable to walk which was an ironic twist of fate.  The wheelchair man went to visit him and he tried to blame him for his paralysis.  The wheelchair man gave him his card and told him if he needed anything to call him. That same day his boss called and asked when he was returning to work.  He told him not immediately as he could not longer walk.  He was fired instantly.  As if that was not bad enough, his fiancé visited him and when she found out he was paralyzed, she gave her engagement ring back to him. Talk about a twist of fate! He finally realized his life had changed and contacted the wheelchair man.  Now they both in the same situation and they became friends.  One day they were having coffee together when the former walking man’s boss appeared.  He actually knew the wheelchair man because he was the majority stockholder of the company the walking man had been fired from. When the wheelchair man realized all this he fired his employee and the walking man’s former boss.  A few months went by and the walking man went to visit the wheelchair man except now he was back on his feet.  From that day forward he had learned a valuable lesson namely that everyone should be treated with respect because you never know whom they may be.  What did you think of this twist of fate?
