It was past 10:00 PM, and I was in line at the supermarket. In front of me was a pregnant girl in pajamas, with a black eye.

Youth comes with a multitude of wrong choices and lessons we remember for a lifetime. Sometimes, destiny forgives us and gives us a second chance.

A man shared an incident he witnessed at a supermarket on the internet.

“It was past 10 PM, and I was in line at the only open checkout counter in the supermarket. In front of me was a woman around 20 years old, wearing pajamas, pregnant, and with a black eye. She seemed quite agitated.

The cashier asked her, ‘Are you okay?’

‘Yes, I’m not sure if I have enough money on my card. How can I check? There’s no ATM around here.’

‘Well, I can scan an item, close the receipt, and see if the payment goes through.’

‘Okay! I hope there’s still something left on my card.’

Unfortunately, the woman’s card was declined. Insufficient funds. The cashier asked her, ‘Don’t you have any cash?’

‘No!’ she burst into tears. ‘I think he took all my money from the card. My ex-boyfriend kicked me out of the house tonight. He came home and said this child couldn’t possibly be his, then he hit me and threw me out on the street. I don’t know how I’m going to manage. I’m staying at a friend’s place until I get back on my feet.’

A man behind me decided to get involved in the conversation.

‘I’ll pay! Put everything on my receipt.’

I stepped aside so that he could get his cart next to the woman. His cart was filled to the brim. The cashier started scanning his items along with the woman’s.

‘No, I can’t accept. Please!’ the woman said amid sobs.

‘My dear, believe me, I know what I’m doing. My mother was kicked out of the house when she was pregnant with me because my father thought she was cheating. My mother struggled with two jobs to give me a decent life. Let’s not allow all these idiots with trust issues to govern our lives.’

‘Yes, but I can’t accept. I don’t have a job; I can’t pay you back.’

‘Look, take my business card. I’ve seen you around this area, and you seem like an educated young woman. Come to my store tomorrow; I need a salesperson. My wife also has a studio apartment for rent if you’re interested.’

In the meantime, the cashier had bagged all the items.

‘It’s 100 euro.’

The man gestured for the pregnant woman to step forward and take her items, and then he handed his card to the cashier. He turned to the woman and said, ‘Everything will be alright. Come for an interview tomorrow. I’m serious.’

Sir, if you’re reading this, know that you restored my faith in people. Ma’am, I hope wherever you are, you and your child have a better life.”
