People like to use their social media accounts to talk about uplifting things that have happened to them, but for some reason those who post the most uplifting stories are often the saddest people you'll ever meet.
Case in point- Paige Yore from Pueblo, Colorado posted a story on Facebook about a cashier who hugged her after being yelled at by a customer, a cashier who then told Paige his mother had committed suicide that morning....except Paige made it all up.
People started contacting Walmart about that poor cashier in Pueblo, so they reviewed the security footage to see what was going on and found that Paige's video, which had gone viral, was nothing but lies.
There was no hug, no angry customer, no cashier in distress over the loss of his mother, just sad Paige Yore sitting in her car making up a story meant to teach us an uplifting lesson.
The only lesson she truly succeeded in teaching us all- if a social media story sounds too saccharine to be true it probably is.
