Amy Schumer Buys $2,000 Mattress For Stranger For The Sweetest Reason
Amy Schumer is pretty awesome. Last year for Christmas, she bought back the farm that her family lost due to bankruptcy during her childhood and gave it to her father, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.
And now, she’s bought someone a $2,000 mattress. Why? Because they let her use the bathroom. Sagine Lazarre works at Six Corners Mattress in Chicago, and last Thursday, a woman jogging by stopped in and asked to use the bathroom. Lazarre said she could.
Lazarre told WGNTV what happened next:
“She comes out of the bathroom and asks me which one of these (mattresses) is my favorite. I told her … She told me she wanted to buy it for me. And I was was so shocked!”
Lazarre thought the woman was joking, but the woman told her she wanted to thank her for letting her use the bathroom and mentioned that she was a comedian. When she went to pay for the mattress, Lazarre saw the name “Amy Schumer” on the credit card.
Lazarre said that after Schumer left, she looked her up:
“After she left, I Googled her name. The lady that was right there talking to me is Amy Schumer. It was amazing. Unbelievable.”
Lazarre and her daughter just moved into a new apartment, so she says the mattress came at a perfect time.
