Samsung Lets Boy Make Assignment in Store, Gives Him Tablet after Story Went Viral

These days, a lot of teachers expect their students to have access to the internet and give them homework that need to be completed using the world wide web. After all, a lot of students do have cellphones and even if they had none, lots of internet shops are also available for them to rent a PC for a couple of minutes to do their assignment.

Sadly, though, not everyone has access to the internet and a lot don’t even have the money to go to an internet shop. But one kid found a way to make his homework even if he had no internet at home – by going to a cellphone shop at a mall near his home!

This wise kid would go viral as he worked on his assignment inside a Samsung outlet, using the store’s display kiosk. Apparently, the kid had been using his cellphone outside the store, connecting to the outlet’s wifi to make his assignment when an employee spotted him and invited him inside to use the much bigger tablets.

With his bag slung over his shoulder, the boy quietly worked on his homework while standing up beside that display kiosk. Someone admired his diligence and took a video which would soon go viral on various social media channels.
