Lisa Lemming Jackson came to the rescue when she noticed an old man at a local store having a little accident in his pants.


She took to Facebook to share about how she protected the man from getting ridiculed at a Kroger store in Georgia on August 6, 2016.

Lisa, who prefers not to look the other way when someone needs help, lent a hand when a man needed it.

While shopping at her nearby grocery store, Lisa noticed an elderly man sitting in his cart. Police as she is, she smiled at him.

Noticing that he might be having some problem, she talked to him.


She asked him if he needed help. He started crying and told her that he had colon cancer.

He told her that if he got up from the cart, everyone would know about his “accident.” He was afraid he would be reduced to laughs or would be pitied.

He didn't want to lose his dignity by revealing that he had an "accident in his pants."


Lisa quickly empathized with him. She called the store staff and requested some help for the man.

The staff quickly obliged. Carefully, they took the man to the employer washroom.

Aside from providing him with wet wipes and new undergarments, they also gave him new clothes - a gesture that touched the old man's heart.

He was emotional and apologetic. He told the employees that his wife was alone at home and he had to return fast.



When he got back to the counter, the man was surprised to find out that someone had paid his bill. His groceries had also been all packed and kept ready.

The man then shared more about himself. He revealed that he was a Vietnam and Korean War veteran. He said he loved his nation so much.

But he was disheartened by the fact that his nation seemed to have forgotten him after his retirement.

Already comfortable with the elderly man, Lisa also opened up about her fears and her life problems. He gave her advice and told her not to give up hope.

This story is reminiscent of an encounter experienced by Gregory Johnson.

He noticed an elderly man with red roses and a birthday cake in his cart. He would soon learn that the birthday celebrant was for his late wife.

Johnson stood beside the elderly man, who was in a shopping wheelchair, at the counter at his local Kroger supermarket in Greenwood, Indiana.

Curious about who was the celebrant, Johnson started talking to the old man and discovered that the cake was for his wife who died five years ago. Their conversation ended up with Johnson going home with the man to join the latter if celebrating his late wife’s birthday.
