Even a cashier can make a huge difference in a person’s life with only a small act of kindness.


Maxwell Auger of Detroit went home early to take care of his daughter Chelsea, who was having stomach sickness, as his wife, Angela, a registered nurse, could not take time off at work.

As he shared through a Facebook post, this dedicated father decided to bring his baby girl along with him to the store to get a few things she needed, but it turned out to be nothing less than a nightmare.

“My daughter was doing great, she was being such a good girl, she wasn’t whining, screaming, or crying, just being a 19 month old lol. She was doing so good,” the dad explained on his Facebook post.

Auger was confident that the worst had already gone and his daughter was feeling good again, but suddenly, their little trip to the store to buy her the things that the pediatrician recommended became a horror tale.


“I go into the aisle where the baby food is and that’s when the party started!” Auger wrote. “My daughter looked up at me, her eyes started to water (as I’m holding her), and she pukes ALL OVER ME and all over the aisle and the coat she was wearing.”

The concerned dad grabbed the electrolyte solution he still needed for Chelsea and began pushing his cart to the front of the store, covered in vomit. Then, the poor baby began throwing up again, all over him, herself and the aisle.

Instead of helping him and his daughter, the other shoppers just stood there and stared. A crowd began to form around them, but an angel came to their rescue “I see out of the corner of my eye what looked to be an employee,” Auger wrote.

“I said to her, with my voice trembling and tears welling up in my eyes, feeling helpless, ‘Ma’am can you please help me ring this stuff out? I have to get her home.’ Without a hesitation, she said, ‘Yes sir, absolutely,’” described the overwhelmed dad.

The sales clerk, identified in the post as Chris K., quickly helped him finish his shopping and getting out of the store. She was a blessing not only to Auger but also to all those who think that kindness and professionalism are out of style.
