Brandon Qualls received a big and welcomed surprise when his friend, Tanner Wilson, presented him with an electric wheelchair. Until now, Qualls has been using a push model chair.



The two are students at Caddo Hills High School in Norman Arkansas.

For years, Qualls has used a manual wheelchair to get around. However, it's very difficult to use so regularly.

He told THV11,

"My arms would get really tired. I would have to stop and take rests."

Little did he know, his friend Wilson was saving money from his part-time job at a mechanic shop to buy him a motorized chair. It took him two years to save the money.

He presented it to Qualls at school on February 27th.



This is the action of a great friend!







When asked about it, Wilson said,

"I wanted to do him a favor. I just felt like I needed to do it and I wanted to do it… Brandon, he's just always been there for me."

Wilson's mother, Colleen Carmack, spoke on her son's generosity, saying,

"That's him. He's always been about everybody else and not himself. We let him know, you get nowhere being mean."

She feels the experience and goal have definitely helped her son after some "bad experiences."

"Him being able to help somebody else has really brought him out -- being able to know that he made a difference.
"And I can see a difference in him -- like wanting to get out and do more. We're talking about college. He's had that goal, but he's talking about it more now."

It's definitely much better to be a nice person.






Wilson surprised his friend with the chair at school. And for the moment, it's there it will stay. Qualls' family doesn't have a vehicle that can transport the electric chair.

Until his family can get a wheelchair accessible vehicle, Qualls is getting used to using the chair at school.

"It's awesome. I may hit a few doors, but it's worth it."

Wilson is also asked by other students if it was worth saving for two years to provide his best friend with the expensive chair.

"Everybody keeps asking me, 'Was it worth it? Was it worth it?' Yeah. 100%."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
