Standing In The Store Queue Customers Watch In Disbelief, Then The Cashier Takes Action!

Have you ever filled the conveyor with your groceries then realized you forgot your wallet, that tremendously embarrassing “oh sugar” moment! Maybe even one stage further, getting told in front of a crowded queue of people that your card has been declined!
A guy recently had to deal with this scenario, but he really did not expect what happened to him after that.

Tim McKellar was in the queue of Dollar General. He saw a real sight, a hardly believable moment that he would remember forever!
Tim was waiting to pay for his groceries and the cashier scanned items from the elderly Gentleman in front of him, he was ever so proud and wearing a veteran cap.
When the guy gave his card for payment, he could not remember his PIN, his card was denied, poor guy.

Tim posted to Facebook:

“He tried a couple different times when another lady offered to help him again with no luck.”
At that moment the cashier stepped in and completely changed the tone of the day for this veteran.

Jacob Wittman, who was working at the Dollar store, at the cash register that day decided that he could not watch the guy swipe and it not work again, so he pulled out his wallet… his wallet!
Tim said:
“That’s when the cashier Jacob Wittman pulled his wallet out and told the lady (who had been helping) to scan his card.”
The veteran, was a little bit confused about what was going on, he asked the cashier, have you just bought my groceries?
Jacob said:
“Yes, sir I did. And, you don’t owe me a dime.”
Tim felt so touched by what just happened, that human connection he just witnessed, he felt the need to record it and share it online, the world needed to see it too!
He said finally:
“Now this kid obviously makes minimum wage or real close to it and probably didn’t have the extra money to spare. I thanked him for what he had done, asked for his name and took his picture.”
“Let’s give this Good Samaritan the acknowledgment that he deserves.”

The post got about 3,000 positive reactions and has been shared over 1,400 times, that is certainly the acceptance and congratulations that were deserved!
Some comments Facebook said:
“Such an awesome act of kindness. Sending you a big hug and many blessings from miles and miles away.”
“Jacob, you are a good-hearted young man. Thank you for helping the elderly and veterans. God bless you!”
“God bless you, young man. So many people could learn from you, what it is to show kindness. You are an inspiration to us all. Thank you.”
It is really lovely acts of kindness like this, one human reaching out to another, someone in need that inspires us to make a real difference in others lives and to perhaps do the same for someone else too.
