A frazzled mother worried over her sick infant in the hospital and her unruly 3-year-old boy was attempting to do some grocery shopping in an Ohio store when an employee did something so unusual that she had to report it.
According to WSB-TV, the woman named Kimberly Grandinette and her son were having a tough time dealing with the unwelcome changes in their life brought about by the hospitalization of Grandinette’s infant child.
While waiting in line to check out her groceries, Grandinette related the difficult time she and her three-year-old son were having to the kind cashier ringing up their groceries, Kristen Clark.
“Then my 3-year-old son asked Kristen if he could help her ring our groceries,” wrote Kimberly in a Facebook post describing the act of kindness by the cashier. “She looked at my son and said, ‘Certainly,’ and brought him behind the register with her.”
“She was so patient with him as she let him scan coupons and she made him feel like a million bucks. He skipped out of the store with a smile on his face,” Kimberly wrote, adding in her thankfulness for Kristen’s display of selfless kindness.
The post to Meijer grocery store’s Facebook page has garnered tons of “likes,” shares and positive comments, including a couple from Kristen’s parents, who are obviously quite pleased with their daughter’s behavior.
She looked at my son and said “Certainly” and brought him behind the register with her. She was so patient with him as she let him help her scan the coupons and she made him feel like a million bucks. He skipped out of the store with a smile on his face.
Thank you, Kristen, for making my son’s day (and my day!) a bit brighter.
“That’s my daughter,” wrote Carl Clark. “I’m so proud of her.”
“I’m so thankful for her taking the time to make his day,” wrote Kristen’s mother Diane, adding, “That’s how she is.”
While Kristen’s parents have every right to be proud of their daughter, they should give themselves a quick pat on the back as well for doing such a great job raising their child to be a good and decent person.
