Some people in this world are just polite, kind-hearted souls, but rarely is their kindness celebrated – so it’s a really heart warming story that the good deeds of John lewis from Blacksburg, Virginia have been celebrated online.
It was 10-things-I-hate-about-you-list-generator site BuzzFeed that first highlighted Mr lewis’ efforts to make sure that people actually got hold of middle England’s favourite department store when they accidentally tweeted @johnlewis rather than @johnlewisretail. He is one very polite fellow, as you can tell from these highlights:

…And now his patience is finding some reward from the folks at John Lewis who have offered to send him a little thank you for all the help over recent months:
Hi @johnlewis – thanks so much for all your efforts directing people to us. We'd love to send you a gift. Please can you DM us your address?

And of course Mr lewis has responded in his own very polite way:
@johnlewisretail That's very nice of you. Thanks for your tweet about my tweets. Love your name and your store.
