Lifestyle| | By Brian Delpozo
Trips to the supermarket can be incredibly stressful, especially with young children. Lauren Walker, a mom from the U.K., was having one of those stressful days on February 18, right up until a kind clerk changed everything.
Walker posted a video to the Facebook page of the Marks & Spencer chain. The footage shows the store’s cashier holding Walker’s young son while ringing up their purchases.
Along with the clip, she wrote:
“While going round, my son started to get a bit restless as let’s be honest, what baby likes shopping? This man took the time with him to talk away so we could manage to get some shopping done. When we reached the checkout, my son was thrilled to see his new friend by screaming “hiya hiya” to him! He spoke away to him and then took him behind the till to “let him help”. He smiled and squealed the full way through it because he was having so much fun! This man made my shopping experience so much easier and the fact he took time with my son as well was great. Unfortunately I never got his name so hopefully you can pass this onto him and tell him how grateful we were!”
While Walker posted the video simply as a way to bring the cashier’s actions to the store’s attention, the post has taken on a life of its own. As of February 24, the post has garnered 609 shares, 8,000 likes, and nearly 300 comments from all over the world.
“All of a sudden, over a couple of days it’s been everywhere and shared all over the world,” she told BBC Newsbeat.
Furthermore, Lauren Walker exclusively told Your Daily Dish, “It’s been crazy and it’s not even been a week! I can’t believe the reaction it’s been given all over just saying thank you for an act of kindness!”
