A Michigan man named Jeff landed the job he's dreamed of at Costco because of his daughters viral tweet.
Rebecca Mix's dad was one of the hundreds of thousands of American's who were laid off during the pandemic but after he was vaccinated, he asked his daughter for help writing his resume.
This story will warm your heart, we promise!
When Mix tweeted, she did not expect it to go viral.

"My dad is a very nice man who will work obnoxiously and is painfully helpful" Mix continued in her Twitter thread.
he's informed he'd also like to work for ups or fedex, because he "doesn't want to sit all day." if you're in metro detroit & you have anything to do with hiring for costco, ups, or fedex, lmk? my dad is a very nice man who will work obnoxiously & is painfully helpful lol— rebecca mix, proud daughter of a costco employee (@mixbecca) May 6, 2021
Well, weeks after her viral tweet Mix shared an update for those eager to find out whether or not her dad would get to start the job of his dreams, and amazingly so, a manager from a local Costco score reached out to Mix, requesting that her Dad fill out an application form online.
"Our CEO was made aware of your tweet regarding your Dad wanting to work for Costco," a manager at a local Costco store manager said in a private message.
"My dad has no idea how Twitter works but he is very excited and wants me to tell you all thank you for caring about him wanting to work at Costco LOL. He's going to apply tonight, please send good Costco vibes!" she tweeted.
Her dad has talked about wanting to work at Costco since his daughter was a little girl, so "if he actually ends up working there I will simply pass away with gratitude LMAO", Mix explained passionately.
And you'll love the result of Mix's viral tweets!
"GUYS" Mix exclaimed in a tweet, letting her followers know that her Dad got the job, proudly showing off his new lanyard badge.
Of course, Jeff's story warmed the hearts of those on the Internet.
