Sweet memory found at grocery story

Today's Crumb was contributed by a faithful reader in southern California. Kimberly Grandinette of Ohio was waiting in the check out line at Meijer's with her 3-year-old son Paul recently when she struck up a conversation with the cashier, Kristen Clark. Kimberly confided to Kristen that her infant son was in the hospital and this was upsetting to her older son, Paul. Then Paul asked the cashier if he could help ring up their groceries.

Kristen said "Certainly," and brought the boy behind the register with her, picking him up. "She was so patient as she let him help scan the coupons," said Kimberly on Facebook. "She made him feel like a million bucks. He skipped out of the store with a smile on his face." Kristen, a community college student, was surprised by how much attention her photo received on Facebook. She said she likes to get to know people, even if it's only for three minutes as they are checking out.
