LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Even in this extreme cold, essential workers are working outside so we can stay comfortable at home.
One Market Street sacker at 19th and Quaker says he actually enjoys his work in the cold because it gives him an opportunity to warm up his shoppers’ days with a little positivity.
“People have stress, anxiety. When they’re going shopping it’s a regular routine, but you never know what they are going through. So what I like to do is hype them up a little,” Darius said.
Seventeen-year-old Darius has been working as a sacker for two years but he says he’s excited to be alive and share that joy with others, even in this cold.
“I love working in the snow. Honestly, you get to play in the snow, dance in it, just see the clouds and the trees and the beautiful creations God made. It’s so amazing,” Darius said.
Darius reminds us to look on the bright side and show appreciation to our essential workers.
