Jeannettea Hollingshead shared a post to Kroger supermarket's Facebook page about a pleasant exchange that occurred on Jan. 4 between a cashier and "Gramma."

Hollingshead told WCMH that she was checking out when cashier Wes McDonald asked about the birthday cake she was buying. When told it was for Gramma's 90th birthday, he said "Wait right here; just a minute, please."

McDonald returned with a rose for Hollingshead to give to Gramma, WCMH reported.

"Instead, I asked him to give it to her because she was there with me, and I snapped this picture!" Hollingshead posted. "This young man, Wes, went above and beyond, and his act of kindness really made Gramma’s day."

Hollingshead’s Facebook post already has more than 28,000 likes and more than 5,400 shares.
