Harry Styles is cool. We all know this. Whether he's acting in a Christopher Nolan film, or touring the world in a boy band that pumps out annoyingly catchy pop tunes, or having an amazing solo career afterwards, the dude's awesome. He can rock a variety of different styles, with some people even claiming he's aging in reverse and hearkening back to his "frat boy" look days, despite not being a frat boy at all, the man captivates people's attentions in a big, big way.
Again, you can say that has to do with the unbelievable "cool" factor of the guy. And there's another reason why he's just so dang beloved: it turns out that he's a pretty nice guy too. There are tons of stories of Harry being an awesome human being on near Keanu Reeves levels (I say near because, well, even Jesus would probably look at Keanu and say, "now that's a good dude") and this latest tale of Harry's kindness is just another entry into why people are so enamored with him.
Being rich and famous doesn't preclude you from having car trouble (I know, such a gyp) and Harry experienced a bit himself one day. It just so happened that his car broke down in a neighborhood street populated with tons of houses and friendly people. It sure beats the horror flick scenario where you're out in the middle of nowhere and there's a bunch of cannibals hungrily eyeing your every move, yeah?
Well a friendly neighbor poked his head outside and invited the young man with car trouble, and the man recognized the stranded traveler as none other than Harry Styles.
The same Harry Styles that his daughter Theadora probably won't shut up about. The same Harry Styles she was a massive fan of.
Sadly for Theadora, she wasn't home at the time, but her father showed Harry around the house, he gave him a cup of tea as he waited for relief.
Imagine coming home to find out @Harry_Styles' car broke down outside your house and he's been in your room, feeding your fish and leaving you notes.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) October 28, 2020
He is truly the king of kindness.
We need more people like this in the world. pic.twitter.com/PO1l5f6ZYX
Harry drank said tea and was shown around the house courtesy of Theadora's dad, he even fed the young woman's fish and penned her a note, writing, "Theadora, my car broke down on your street and your dad's friend kindly let me wait at your house with a cup of tea. I'm devastated that we missed each other. Looking forward to meeting you soon. Treat people with kindness. All my love, Harry. P.S. I fed the fish."
I know, as amazing as this story is, it's kind of heartbreaking that she was out not-seeing-Harry-Styles when the man was literally standing right inside her home. But Harry, being the benevolent patron of celebrity hope that he is, offered this hopeful promise to the young fan:
"Tell your dad to get in touch and I'll see you at a show."
Yep. That. Just. Happened. The Super Fan wanted to keep the entire instance a secret so as to keep both Harry and her respective living situations a secret from weirdos, but there are plenty of photos from his stay at their home that've been uploaded online and shared via various media outlets.
Relieved that Harry Styles story didn’t happen to young me because I would have definitely gotten “PS. I FED THE FISH” tattooed on my body.— Kathleen Newman-Bremang (@KathleenNB) October 29, 2020
I can't describe how I'd feel if I knew Harry Styles had been in my bedroom while I wasn't also in my bedroom, but I'd for sure never move away just in case he ever ended up there again— Aaahhh!-shley (@missalwayswrite) October 28, 2020
Twitter, was of course, absolutely dead at the whole exchange. And it didn't take long for people to comment on the tragic-greatness that is being able to host your favorite celebrity in your home, but unfortunately not being there to witness it.
I've been cleaning my apartment all day since this is now a possibility my brain has to consider.— bethandbono (@bethandbono) October 28, 2020
Tons of people made the same joke about obsessively cleaning their home every single day in the event that Harry Styles ended up showing up out of the blue so you could make a great impression.
This reads like a fan fiction— Abigail Faulkner (@Abigail59640082) October 29, 2020
THE FACT SOME RANDOM GIRL HAD THEIR PARENTS INVITE THE HARRY EDWARD STYLES INTO THEIR HOUSE WHILST HE FED THE FISH AND SIPPED ON TEA AND SHE WASNT EVEN THERE I FEEL SECOND HAND DEPRESSION FOR THEODORA BUT AT THE SAME TIME SHE WON AT LIFE pic.twitter.com/ShahDamtkG— Grace☀️ (@hshqdimples) October 28, 2020
Also, can we just talk about how cool Harry looks when he's just driving around town? I mean, he didn't have to get all decked out like that to just go for a drive yet here he is, looking cool as all heck while feeding fish.
HOW TF A FISH.. A FUCKING FISH MEET HARRY STYLES BEFORE ME— mar golden era (@finelinerm) October 28, 2020
How would you react to discovering that the celebrity you'd die (or kill?) to meet was at your home when you weren't there?
Harry is amazingly sweet! I worked on a music video for OD years ago and he came around thanking each and everyone one of us with a handshake. So kind and so sincere!! ❤️— Khloe Aichlmayr (@khloemilia) October 29, 2020
This is a story parents will tell years from now just to get their kids to clean their rooms.— Bruce R. Miller (@siouxbruce) October 29, 2020
Everybody saying how they wished this happened to them but they're not saying how nice his handwriting is.— Sad_Asian_Hours (@SadAsianBoY5) October 29, 2020
That dad should be punched. I'm m sorry but if this was me as a kid and Rob Thomas showed up at my house and I wasn't hunted down immediately, I would disown my whole family. Like I feel so bad for this fan— a girl named Quay (@quayz180) October 29, 2020
Bless that kid for having a neat room— yourstillaninnocent (@XsamanthafmX_) October 29, 2020
I'd be completely embarassed if one of my favourite artists would suddenly enter in this complete mess
This is mildly similar to the time I dreamed I found Osama Bin Laden in my garage, and was trying to come up with a plan to turn him in for the 25M reward. Again, mildly similar.— Heshykp (@kipinitreal88) October 29, 2020
