Nick Tate works as a cashier at the Walmart in Newcastle, Oklahoma. The 20-year-old is known as one of the most kind and chatty staff members there, always asking customers about their day and being polite to everybody he comes across.
Recently, Nick was working his evening shift on a busy Friday when a foster mother came through his line with two little girls and a baby.
The two toddlers were becoming out-of-control as the mom struggled to control them. The que behind her kept getting longer and longer.
She could feel strangers staring and judging. But the second she found herself standing in front of Nick, he looked at her and said, “One of those days?”
The foster mom immediately apologized, as if she had done something wrong. Then she pulled out a WIC card, which provides assistance for low-income families with children.
“I’ve never used WIC before,” she told Nick. “I don’t know how it’s going to go.” She didn’t want to hold up the line any longer.
Nick realized the woman’s card was not working, after trying the card several times.
But then Nick did something that made the woman break down in tears… and after she stood there trying to process it, she took to Facebook to tell the world.
Watch the video below to see why Nick will never forget this grateful customer.
