When Mom Kyesha picked up her son and teenage daughters from the movie theatre after a screening of Cinderella, she expected to hear about magic, a fairy godmother, and glass slippers. Instead, she heard a story that shocked her. Kyesha’s son told her that his sisters had behaved badly in the theatre; talking, kicking the seats in front of them, and just generally being obnoxious.

Their behavior was so annoying, in fact, that the woman sitting in front of them turned around and asked them to be quiet. The girls laughed in her face.
When Kyesha learned about the girls’ disrespect, she took to Facebook, looking for the woman whose movie-going experience had been disturbed. In the status Kyesha posted, she explained that– not only did the girls annoy this woman– but the woman approached Kyesha’s daughters after the film and told them that her husband had been laid off.
The woman was at the movie with a daughter of her own, probably for the last time for a long while, and the teens had ruined the outing. Kyesha was looking to find that woman and make it right.
The Jefferson County Sherriff’s Office shared Kyesha’s status to help her find the movie-goer:
This is a long shot, but I’m looking for a woman that was at Tannehill Premier tonight seeing Cinderella at 7pm. I dropped my teenage daughter, step daughter, and son off at the movie. My son later told me, much to my humiliation and embarrassment, that my girls were rude and obnoxious during the movie.
The woman I’m looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful. After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her.
If you are this woman, please message me.
I can assure you that these girls are being strongly dealt with and appropriately punished. This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology. My husband and I are having them write your apology letter tonight and we would like to pay for your next movie and snacks out of their allowance.
Please message me if this is you. I apologize profusely for their disrespect.
Kyesha’s status quickly went viral. Most of the comments on the post were praising Kyesha for teaching her daughters such an important lesson about respect, but one comment was from the woman herself, Rebecca Boyd.
Rebecca was surprised to read Kyesha’s status. She thought that Kyesha would be upset that a stranger had approached her children. But Kyesha stood by Rebecca. In fact, Kyesha told ABC News that she was grateful for Rebecca for saying something, calling her a hero.
After the post went viral, Kyesha and Rebecca met in person. At their meeting, Kyesha handed Rebecca an envelope with apology letters from the girls as well as the girls’ allowances, paying her back for the ruined movie.
But the story doesn’t end there! The post reached so many people that strangers began to reach out to Rebecca Boyd with job offers for her husband. It looks like, as in the case of Cinderella, this story has a happy ending!
