We get annoyed and assume the worst when someone trespasses on our property and plucks flowers without our permission.

We are less inclined to show leniency when someone breaks the rules of etiquette.

One woman who faced such a situation set an example for all of us about how to treat an intruder with kindness.

This lady, who goes by the username Generous Sunshine on TikTok, saw a stranger plucking daffodils from her property.

She approached the stranger and greeted her “good morning” in a gentle voice. She then asked her why she was plucking the flowers.

The stranger replied, “It’s for my parents’ cemetery.” She added that daffodils were her mother’s favourite flowers.

The Tiktok user asked her to remove a bulb so that she could plant the daffodils in her parents’ cemetery.
