In a supermarket, Kurt the stock boy, was busily working when
a new voice came over asking for a carry out at check register
4. Kurt was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air,
and decided to answer the call. As he approached the check-out
stand, a distant smile caught his eye, the new check out girl
was beautiful. She was an older woman (maybe 26, and he was only
22) and he fell in love.
Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the
punch clock to find out her name. She came into the break room,
smiled softly at him, took her card and punched out, then left.
He looked at her card, BRENDA. He walked out only to see her
start walking up the road.
Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket,
and offered her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and
she accepted. When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he
could see her again, outside of work. She simply said it wasn't
possible. He pressed and she explained she had two children
and she couldn't afford a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay
for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly, she accepted his offer for
a date for the following Saturday.
That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have
her tell him that she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter
had called and canceled. To which Kurt simply said, "Well, lets
take the kids with us."
She tried to explain that taking the children was not an
option, but again not taking no for an answer, he pressed. Finally,
Brenda brought him inside to meet her children. She had a older
daughter who was just as cute as a bug, Kurt thought, then Brenda
brought out her son, in a wheelchair. He was born a paraplegic
with down syndrome. Kurt asked Brenda, "I still don't understand
why the kids can't come with us?" Brenda was amazed. Most men
would run away from a woman with two kids, especially if one
had disabilities. Just like her first husband, the father of
her children did.
That evening Kurt and Brenda loaded up the kids, went
to dinner and the movies. When her son needed anything Kurt
would take care of him. When he needed to use the rest room,
he picked him up out of his chair, took him, brought him back.
The kids loved Kurt. At the end of the evening, Brenda knew
this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of
her life with. A year later, they were married and Kurt adopted
both of her children. Since, they have added two more kids.
So, what happened to the stock boy and check out girl? Well,
Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner, now live in St. Louis, where he
is employed by the St. Louis Rams and plays quarterback.
