A kind-hearted supermarket worker has gone viral after paying for a seven-year-old girl’s sweets when she accidentally ran out of money at the till.
Angel Wilson was given £1.50 to spend on treats after doing chores for her parents and popped to her local Asda near her home.
When she got back her parents Chris, 47, and Tereza, 42, were amazed when they read a note on the bottom of the reciept from the cashier.
It read: “Alex at Asda paid the £1 for her.”
House-husband Chris posted a picture of the receipt on social media as a thank you to Alex and it has since gone viral with thousands of shares across the world.
Chris and Tereza, from Lincoln, were amazed at his kindness, and they later went back to the store to remimburse Alex.
Chris, who has three sons and three daughters aged three to 22, said: “Angel was doing chores in the house, like tidying the bedroom and making a cup of coffee.
“So I decided to give her money for shopping to get treats. It was £1.50.
“She went to buy sweets and came back and handed me a receipt. We realised she had been short and the worker had paid out of their pocket.
“Alex did not have the heart to tell her she did not have enough money to pay for her shopping.
“So he took it out his own pocket and put it in the till.
“I told my wife about it when she came back from university and she was really touched.”
Student nurse Tereza added: “We went back to the shop to do shopping and found Alex. She went over to give the pound back and thank him for what he had done.
“We thought it was amazing. There’s a lot of negativity going about all over social media but then you get little things like that.
“Angel did not know what happened, She’s good at maths and reading. She normally adds up quite well. She must have picked something from the wrong shelf.”
