The Sweetest Thing Isn’t The Candy

(A young boy—about seven or eight years old—walks up to my register. He is all alone, and without his parents.)

Me: “Hi, what can I do for you?”

(The boy puts $7 on the counter.)

Boy: “Hi, ma’am, do I have enough money to buy this candy?”

Me: “Yes, you do, and you have some left over!”

Boy: “Oh, really? Well do I have enough to buy two?”

Me: “Yes, you do!”

Boy: “Alright, I’ll get two! My brother is sick today, and he couldn’t come to the movie. I want to get him something so he doesn’t feel left out.”

Me: “That’s very nice of you!”

Boy: “I just felt bad for him. Well, thank you very much, ma’am. I really appreciate it. Have a good day!”

(He is the nicest customer I have all day, not to mention the youngest!)
