Walmart cashier in Mississippi helps calm nervous man paying with change

A Walmart cashier's simple act of kindness has shown that slowing down and showing patience can sometimes make all the difference.

A Walmart cashier's simple act of kindness has shown that slowing down and showing patience can sometimes make all the difference.

In a widely-shared Facebook post, Spring Herbison Bowlin said her heart was warmed during a recent shopping trip to a Walmart in Mississippi.

Bowlin had stopped by the megastore on her lunch break Thursday and was waiting in the checkout line when she said she was moved by a cashier's kindness toward one customer.

Bowlin wrote that a man in front had just been given his total when he nervously looked back at her and started to apologize as he placed handfuls of change on the counter.

"He miscounts and starts to get flustered," Bowlin wrote.

"His hands and voice are shaking," she said. "This beautiful cashier takes his hands and dumps all the change on the counter and says, 'This is not a problem, honey. We will do this together.'"

After the transaction was handled, Bowlin said she thanked the cashier for being so patient with the customer.

"She shakes her head and replies, 'You shouldn't have to thank me, baby. What's wrong with our world is we've forgotten how to love one another.'"

The post, which was uploaded Thursday, has since been liked more than 24,000 times.
