I was at a grocery store today. Rob, a second grade student and his mom were in line ahead of me to pay.
Rob had a 20 oz Coke bottle in his hand. As soon as his mom paid, Rob opened up the bottle and started guzzling Coke.
Apparently he dropped the bottle on the floor and made a mess. His mom slapped him and the store keeper was pissed as he had to clean it up.
As Rob was crying, I decided to buy him another Coke.
I gave the coke and a smile card to his mother. I also offered the store keeper, if I could help him clean up. He just smiled and took care of it.
Rob stopped crying and actually sang a song for me before leaving cheerfully.
