This friendly cashier saved the day for a mom by holding her upset baby

When Lauren Walker walked into a Scotland supermarket with her 10-month-old son, Alistair, and her mom last weekend, her little boy made sure to say hello to everyone he came in contact with, including a friendly cashier. But by the time they got to the checkout counter, he’d had enough.

Walker was trying to keep him calm when the very same cashier, Mubarak, recognized Alistair from their earlier encounter.

“Alistair started to get excited and shout ‘Hi’ to him,” Walker told TODAY. “When he started scanning, the man put his arms out to take Alistair so he could help him.”
