Roofer Who Tricked Old Lady Into Taking A Free Roof Found The One Loophole In Our “Never Trick Old Ladies” Rule

Senior citizens can be stubborn and proud. And that’s exactly what Jeanette MacDonald is. The grandmother, who takes care of her four grandchildren, had a run-down roof but refused to fix it until she got the grant money she applied for.

That’s when Jeremy Locke stepped in. The owner of a roofing and construction company, Locke watched the roof go unfixed for months. He even told McDonald he would fix the roof for free.

“I had it in my mind that if no one steps up to help this lady in our community, I’d be more than happy to,” said Locke.

But MacDonald wasn’t interested.

“I don’t like people doing anything for me for nothing,” MacDonald told Maritime Noon.

MacDonald said she would hire Locke when her application for the grant was approved. But unfortunately, the approval never came.

So Locke decided to trick the senior citizen—by telling her that she’d won a free roof in a raffle. By the way, this is probably one of the only times it’s okay to lie to the elderly.

“Businesses often run raffles and draws for free items so I told Jeanette that our company was going to have a raffle, or a draw, for a free roof,” Locke said.

MacDonald agreed to take part in the raffle, not knowing it was a con.

“Once she agreed, I told her not to worry about it, that she had already won,” said Locke.

Locke, who’s been in business for one year, said MacDonald’s situation struck a chord with him.

“She reminded me of my grandmother,” he said, adding that he was raised by his grandparents.

The work is worth about $9000, and Locke and his four employees will donate their time.

“Our whole crew is excited,” said Locke.

MacDonald called Locke a “guardian angel” for his perseverance.

“There’s nobody out there like him,” she said.
