On July 13, Xiao Xuan visited a convenience store in Tainan, Taiwan, to have breakfast with her son. According to her the service staff of the store were exceptionally patient. Her thinking proved to be correct after she witnessed a touching scene.
On that very morning, while visiting the store, she saw an elderly man entering the convenience store. The elderly man was only wearing a shirt and a diaper. She guessed he could be an Alzheimer’s patient, as Xiao Xuan’s grandpa had the same disease.
He came to the store to purchase bottles of milk, but the cashier was overheard telling him gently, “You can only buy 4 bottles of milk.”
The cashier stopped him from buying more bottles of milk, after hearing this “Isn’t it better if he buys more?” she thought. Later, she found out that the elderly man was actually a regular customer, and the cashier understood his situation well enough to know what he needed.
Then, the elderly man insisted to buy a big bottle of milk. “Ok, you can only buy this big bottle of milk. You cannot buy those small bottles, or else you won’t be able to finish them,” the cashier told him.
The elderly man, walked away after paying his bill, but the next moment she saw the cashier leaving his desk. The cashier quietly followed the elderly man as he walked out of the store and made his way home. After ten minutes, the cashier returned to the store, seemingly after ensuring the elderly man had safely reached home.
She took it to Facebook and shared the snapshots of this cashier’s kindness. The cashier even helped the elderly man to carry his bag.
Xiao Xuan’s Facebook post has since gone viral, garnering more than 44,000 reactions. Many netizens are impressed by the cashier’s warm-hearted gesture.
“Our society needs someone like him. I applaud him for his kindness!” one Facebook user wrote.
“He is so thoughtful. What a heartwarming story,” another commented.
