Boy Had 5 Seconds to Take Anything from a Store and His Choices Are Shocking
A boy has captured the hearts of many people after a video of him picking what he wanted from the store was shared on social media. Many said he was raised right by his parents.
As shown in the adorable clip uploaded recently by user @_itsmedyy_ on Instagram, the boy, who looks no more than 12 years old, was asked to answer a math question to get five seconds of free shopping in the store.
On getting the answer right, the person who asked him began to count down from five to one very slowly. In the video, the boy is seen choosing to take bananas, avocado, and onions — a gesture that took many people by surprise.

In an interview with TODAY, Wolfe said that her encounter with the woman made her appreciate the small moments that she has with her children that seem totally routine.
GROCERY FOR STUDENTS
Linda Tutt High School in Sanger, Texas, opened a grocery store for students. In the store, the students do not pay with money but with good deeds, such as cleaning around the school building, as reported by Fox News.
The school partnered with local nonprofits to help children who have been made increasingly food insecure because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The store is open Monday through Wednesday for students and staff within the school district. Anthony Love, the school's principal, said that it is a way for students to earn the ability to shop for their families.
