    (I am working the register when a young girl of about four or five approaches.)

    Little Girl: “Excuse me, but do you sell bottled water?”

    Me: “We sure do sweetheart; it’s right by the self check out.”

    (The little girl walks over to the coolers and grabs a water. She stops by her mother who is nearby in an aisle and then comes back to me.)

    Little Girl: “I told my mommy I was feeling a bit dehydrated, so she said I can buy this.”

    Me: “You sure can! That will be [total].”

    (She hands me $2, and I hand her her change.)

    Me: “Thank you for being so polite; enjoy your water!”

    Little Girl: “You’re welcome, ma’am. My mommy says you should be polite to people because it makes them happy, and I like to make people happy.”

    (She certainly put a smile on my face for the rest of the night!)
