Viral Photo Shows Walmart Cashier Helping Man Nervous About Paying With Change © Facebook Viral Photo Shows Walmart Cashier Helping Man Nervous About Paying With Change The holiday shopping season is officially here, but while most of us are running around buying cartloads of groceries and gifts, one Walmart cashier is earning praise for remembering what this busy time is truly about.

Spring Bowlin was waiting in a checkout line at a Mississippi Walmart last week as a man ahead of her went to pay for his purchases. "He looks apologetically back at me and starts taking handfuls of change out of his pockets," she wrote on Facebook. "He miscounts and starts to get flustered."

Bowlin then explains how his hands and voice began to shake as he apologized and started again, but that's when the unnamed employee stepped in. "This beautiful cashier takes his hands and dumps all the change on the counter and says, 'This is not a problem, honey. We will do this together,'" Bowlin wrote. She then proceeded to sort and tally the coins, reassuring the customer without making it seem like an inconvenience or annoyance.

When a friend inspired her to launch her own business: <p>We all need that little nudge to take a big risk, and for Avi Loren Fox, the now-founder of clothing line <a href='http://www.wildmantle.com'>Wild Mantle</a>, that push came from a well-intended friend.</p><p>'A few years ago, I was in a coffee shop with some friends talking about how I really wanted a hooded scarf. I had seen a few around but could never find one to buy in stores. We all mused about how you could totally make the shape by cutting up and sewing together some old sweaters. I guess I kept going on about it, because after a while one of my friends was like 'Come on, let's go!' and marched me to a thrift store down the street and bought me a bag of cashmere and wool sweaters. I went home that night and made a hooded-scarf. It turned out really well, and when I wore it out into the world, people noticed and said, 'What is that? I want one!' I started making and selling them, and now two kickstarter campaigns and a Tory Burch Foundation loan later, that first hooded scarf that turned into the company that is now my passion and work: Wild Mantle. I still think back to how that random act of kindness changed everything, and without it, Wild Mantle probably never would have happened. Thank you, Roni!'

When it was Bowlin's turn to check out, she felt compelled to thank the cashier for her patience, but it was the employee's response that truly warmed her heart. "You shouldn't have to thank me, baby," the woman said. "What's wrong with our world is we've forgotten how to love one another."

The experience moved Bowlin so much that she later posted the story on Facebook, stating she wanted to be more like the "this wonderful woman," and she's not the only one. Over 15,000 people shared the heartwarming photo and commended the cashier for her kindness.

"[They] definitely have me crying right now!" one person wrote. "God bless this woman and her sweet soul!"

And with weeks of hectic errands and shopping ahead, this important reminder couldn't have come at a better time.
