Cashier Tells Senior Citizen To Put Groceries Back, Then One Teen Saves The Day

A young teen working at a grocery store was so moved when he heard a cashier telling an elderly person to put back the grocery items he couldn’t pay for that he decided to do something about it.

Act of generosity


Teo Jordan works at Kroger in Kentucky for a few weeks now and the 18-year-old high school senior is saving up to buy a vehicle but when he saw the need of a customer, he jumped right in.

He heard the cashier tell the elderly man to return the groceries he couldn’t pay for and so Teo Jordan dived into his own wallet to pay for it. “I just seen [sic] I wanted to help the guy,” Teo said of the random act of kindness. “I saw that he didn’t have the money for all the groceries that he wanted. The cashier told him he would have to put some of the things back, so I just thought in my head I would give him this $35 so he could have all the food that he wants.”

Teo is modest and says, “just treat people how you want to be treated — always help out if somebody needs it.” Many have been impacted by his good deed and his mom is extremely proud of him and is “overwhelmed with joy.”

Teo has a final message for all of us, “Just do something helpful for people,” he says. “Let them know that God’s there for them and make sure they have a good day.”
