After hearing a cashier mention that she wasn’t able to find a slip-and-slide anywhere for her kids, a kind stranger went out and bought one for her.
Bri Collins was working at a Dollar Tree in Lubbock, Texas, and had a quick and casual conversation with a customer as she was scanning her items.
“I work at dollar tree as a cashier. I was casually talking to a customer about how I went to go buy a pool for my kids the other night, and I couldn’t find one anywhere,” Bri shared in a post online.
After a little small talk, the customer left and Bri continued checking out other customers in line, but about half an hour later, the same customer walked back into the store with a gift.
“She leaves. Then maybe 20-30 minutes later comes back with a Kohls bag with a slip and slide for my babies 😍😍” Bri shared.
Bri was deeply touched by the woman’s thoughtfulness and kindness; going out of her way for a stranger who she didn’t even know.
“I almost cried. I said, ‘awe… you didn’t have to…’ and thanked her.”
Many hearts online appreciated the stranger’s random act of kindness for Bri.
