Act Of Kindness Goes Viral After Cashier Stuns Shopper With Her Selflessness

During a period of economic instability and international uncertainty, random acts of selflessness and kindness are becoming more and more meaningful. The unsolicited actions of an Indiana-based cashier working at a Marsh Supermarket and Pharmacy Store on Kentucky Avenue, Indianapolis, have gone viral after the young woman working at the register helped an elderly lady pay for her groceries. The incident was captured by another shopper at the store named Gary Clark who took a photo of the generous employee, who has since been identified as a woman named Janell.

Mr. Clark would later take to Facebook to express his admiration for the cashier. In the post, Mr. Clark uploaded a photo of the exchange along with a short description. The ordinary shopper describes how the elderly lady at the front of the checkout line came to the awful realization that she didn’t have enough money to pay for her groceries. The kind old lady attempted to return several of her grocery items in order to pay for her shop. However, Janell wouldn’t accept the exchange and decided to personally buy half the elderly lady’s groceries, saying: “You come through my line all the time, and I want to help. I had a good week.”

The flustered old lady couldn’t resist Janell’s good natured selflessness and repeatedly thanked her for his generosity. Mr. Clark was incredibly touched by the simple act of kindness, especially considering that Janell’s wage as a cashier was likely quite low.

The touching story has since gone viral and over 18,00 people liked and commented on Mr. Clark’s post. Mr. Clark also emphasized that the heart-warming incident has restored his faith in America’s youth, saying: “This young lady took money out of her own pocket and paid half of her bill. Please share and let everyone know our youth is not a lost cause. I was proud to witness it, Marsh should be proud to have her as an employee.”
