The heartwarming moment a cashier helps an elderly man count his change
A photo capturing a small act of kindness has gone viral.
Spring Herbison Bowlin shared a snap from last week of a supermarket cashier helping an elderly, nervous man count his change.
“This gentleman’s items were scanned and he was given the total. He looks apologetically back at me and starts taking handfuls of change out of his pockets,” she captioned the image.
“He miscounts and starts to get flustered. Gives me a muttered, ‘I’m so sorry.’ His hands and voice are shaking,” the post continues.
“This beautiful cashier takes his hands and dumps all the change on the counter and says, ‘This is not a problem, honey. We will do this together’.”
After the heartwarming incident, Spring spoke to the cashier, writing: “I looked at this wonderful woman and said, ‘Thank-you for being so patient with him’.”
The cashier shakes her head and replies, “You shouldn’t have to thank me, baby. What’s wrong with our world is we’ve forgotten how to love one another”.
Spring ends her post: “I want to be more like her.”
So do we.
