As televised and online news cycles relay grisly events from around the world and around the corner, from chaos in the Middle East, increasing violence in Europe and Mexico, to gang turf wars in Chicago, targeted shooting of police, the public becomes not only immune to horror stories, but tempted to believe that random acts of kindness still occur.

A harried father of a sick baby might have felt that way, too, until a grocery store clerk came to his rescue, stepping forward to help him simply because it was the right thing to do.

The dad, referred to only as Maxwell, posted the story on his Facebook page after a rough day when he had to leave work early to take care of his sick baby daughter, Chelsea, and then head to the store to pick up a list of items her pediatrician had recommended.

Without a sitter, Maxwell took her to with him to the Meijer’s grocery store where she became ill as only a sick baby can do, covering herself, her father and the floor with vomit.

Maxwell wrote that they were the center of attention, drawing stares from the other shoppers as he made his way to the checkout lanes, holding a sobbing baby who began to vomit again.

The overwhelmed father wrote that his frustration level was “through the roof,” when a he spotted a store employee.

“I said to her, with my voice trembling and tears welling up in my eyes, feeling helpless, “Ma’am can you please help me ring this stuff out? I have to get her home.”

He wrote that Chris K said with a smile, “Yes sir, absolutely,” as she took the baby in her arms, leading him to a register and ringing up his order quickly so he could get Chelsea home.

“Here is a lady who not only was willing to help, but she didn’t hesitate to hold my puke-covered, crying kid!” he posted.

Chris K might not have known it, but she did more than help a dad with a sick baby, she demonstrated kindness and consideration that the other customers could emulate – as could a lot of other people in the world.
