The quarantine we’re currently experiencing due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 is certainly a traumatic experience for many. And while some rely on books and movies to escape the horror of our reality, some people not only find an escape, but also a way to connect through social media. One 74-year-old recently found himself in a bit of a pickle when he couldn’t set up his brand new cell phone to work. Unable to go out and get assistance, the old man decided to use a landline and contact his son, Bobby. Accidentally, he phoned a complete stranger instead, but that was just the beginning of a wholesome story.

Twitter user Tim recently shared a thread on the social media site, detailing this interaction with the 74-year-old. Fortunately, when he received the call from a total stranger, he decided to help him out. After all, these are trying times for all of us and we could all use some kindness and help.
