Bowlin says when it was her turn to check out, she thanked the cashier for being so patient with the man. He then miscounted it and began to get frustrated and apologized to both the clerk and the customer waiting behind him.
Bowlin said the man's voice and hands were shaking, and what the cashier did next made her smile.
A woman at a Mississippi Walmart learned that lesson after watching an older man struggle to count his change at the checkout counter.
The cashier intervened and assured him that everything was going to be okay.

"You shouldn't have to thank me, baby. What's wrong with our world is we've forgotten how to love one another, '" the post reads.
What's more heartwarming is what the cashier tells Ms Bowlin once the man leaves. "If you take too long in line customers behind you start to grumble". Compassion and empathy too! The people that live day to day because of financial troubles. In the photo's caption, she recounted the story.
