Passing That Back Right Back Where It Came From

, , , , , | Right | August 7, 2020

I’m working at the self-checkout at our grocery store. I’m working with the sweetest old lady who everybody loves, both our colleagues and customers. We’re having a nice day until I hear a mother talking to her child.

Mother: “No, [Kid], don’t you touch that!” *Points at my colleague* “If you keep doing that, that lady is going to be very, very mad at you!”

The boy looks over, embarrassed. My colleague frowns at me and then calmly walks over. She kneels next to him.

Colleague: “Don’t you worry, sweetie. I won’t get mad at you. I’m very sweet and nice, and you don’t have to be scared of me.”

She shoots the mother a glare.

Colleague: “If you touch that, your mom will get mad, because she’s responsible for you, not me.”

She smiled sweetly at the kid before giving him a high-five and walking back to me. This is why I love her!
