He Was Bothered By Everyone Staring At Him In The Store, Then He Felt A Tap On His Shoulder…


Even a small act of kindness can make a huge difference in a person’s life, in this case, kindness from a cashier. 

Maxwell Auger of Detroit went home early to take care of his daughter Chelsea, who was having stomach sickness, as his wife, Angela, a registered nurse, could not take time off from work.

As he shared through a Facebook post, this dedicated father decided to bring his baby girl along with him to the store to get a few things she needed, but it turned out to be nothing less than a nightmare.

“My daughter was doing great, she was being such a good girl, she wasn’t whining, screaming, or crying, just being a 19 month old lol. She was doing so good,” the dad explained in his Facebook post.

Auger was confident that the worst had already gone and his daughter was feeling good again, but suddenly, their little trip to the store to buy her the things that the pediatrician recommended became a horror tale.

He continued to explain in his post:

“I go into the aisle where the baby food is and that’s when the party started! My daughter looked up at me, her eyes started to water (as I’m holding her), and she pukes ALL OVER ME and all over the aisle and the coat she was wearing.

Now, covered in vomit and a crying baby, I still have to get her pedialyte we needed, among other things, and I had a cart full of stuff we needed.

I’m pushing her towards the front of the store, holding her in one arm and and pushing the cart in the other. She starts puking again, ALL over me and the aisle. Instead of helping me, people were staring! A crowd starts to form (ARE YOU SERIOUS?!).

I see out of the corner of my eye what looked to be an employee. I said to her, with my voice trembling and tears welling up in my eyes, feeling helpless, ‘Ma’am can you please help me ring this stuff out? I have to get her home.’ Without a hesitation she said, ‘Yes sir, absolutely,’ and put her arms out to hold my kid covered in puke, so I can take my puke-covered coat off and Chelsea’s.

Then she said, ‘Follow me and we will get you out of here, I’ll take care of you.’

I felt like the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders!

Here is a lady who not only was willing to help, but she didn’t hesitate to hold my puke-covered, crying kid!

Chris K you ARE AN ANGEL! You helped me more than I can even begin to express in words. You were an angel to me and my daughter that day and I will NEVER forget what a complete blessing you were! You are an AWESOME human being, and I hope Meijer realizes that they have a ROCK STAR!”

The sales clerk, Chris K. was a blessing not only to Auger but also to all those who think that kindness and professionalism are out of style.
