She explained that they were queuing at the counter, just waiting for their turn, when they overheard the young woman tell the old man to get coffee, bread, and sugar as she will pay for the items.

    The old man shyly went away to get some bread but when he went back with just pieces, the woman told him to get more! Knowing that the old man was likely too shy to get a lot of items, the young man instructed her companion to get toothpaste and other items that he and his family are sure going to need in this time of pandemic.

    When he went back to the line, the old man was rather surprised to find that his basket was full! He was still shy but he was smiling. He was, indeed, grateful to get help from this kind young woman.
