A cashier in Ohio, America, has made one little three-year-old very happy with a small gesture.


Kimberly Grandinette was out shopping with her young son when she got into a conversation with cashier, Kristen Clark.


It was here that Kimberly explained to Kristen that her young baby son was in hospital and she was worried about the effect ‘the changes in routine’ were having on her eldest son.


While she was talking to the cashier, Kimberly’s young boy asked if he could have a go at ringing in the groceries. Without hesitation, the supermarket worker said “certainly” and allowed him behind the counter, where he got to ring up the shopping.



I just wanted to tell you about an awesome experience I had today. My three year old son and I went through the checkout...

Clearly overwhelmed by her kindness, Kimberly took a picture and uploaded it to the supermarket’s Facebook page, to say a huge thank you.


“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,” she wrote.


The post has since gone viral with nearly 150,000 likes. 


Well done Kristen, what a lovely gesture.
