At a store in Fort Worth, cashier Christian Griffan apologized to a customer who approached the register. “I’m sorry, sir, this lady’s running out to her car to get some money.”
The customer, Karridy, glanced outside and asked, “The lady that’s driving away?”
Momentarily disappointed that the woman had apparently stolen the item, the cashier reached for his wallet.
The customer in line, Karridy, took note: “I’m like ‘you’re gonna pay for that? You shouldn’t pay for it… you’ve got cameras, get her plates and get her back here to pay for it!’ And he was like, ‘nah, she had formula.’”
Karridy was so impressed that the cashier was willing to pay for the alleged thief’s baby formula, he shared the incident on Facebook, where others quickly took notice and started donating money to pay Christian back for his act of gratitude. Pretty soon, neighbors had collected well beyond the cost of the formula.
Karridy used the money to purchase a gift card, and when Christian rang up the card and handed it to him, Karridy just slid it back to him and said, “No, that’s yours —that’s from your neighbors, we appreciate you.”
