With more and more stories of coronavirus shopper rage and supermarket panic pouring in, it’s lovely to hear a story of a very different nature.
Sharing on the awesome Aldi Mums Facebook page, one heavily pregnant mum-to-be revealed how she was blown away by the kindness of shoppers at her local Aldi store - despite the huge coronavirus crowds.
Stacey writes: ‘33wks (heavily) pregnant and waddling into my local Aldi today for my latest cravings...cheese kranskys (got 3 packs) and bananas. Get to the checkout and the line was ridiculously long (only 1 checkout open).
‘Get to the end of the line, start thinking to myself that I am way too sore to be standing so long in line. Next minute, lady in front of me with a trolley load tells me to go in front of her, then the next lady tells me to go in front...turns out almost everyone in line (with very full trolleys) are super lovely and move me to the front of the line so I can make my tiny purchase and leave.
‘With these damn emotions that come with pregnancy, it was super hard not to cry over something so nice. But I did thank every one of them for being so amazing.’
Stacey’s sweet post sparked a wave of support from the group’s followers.
‘Thank you for sharing this good news story, proves there is still really good people out there 🤗🤗🤗,’ said one.
Added another: ‘That's how it should be my local is the same good to see there are decent humans still left in the world.’
Said a third: ‘Wonderful. That's the kind of news we need when we're being pummelled with stories of people's selfish acts.’
Added one more: ‘Beautiful in times of adversity humanity still look out for others 😘’
Said another: ‘Good gestures from kind hearted people.’
We couldn’t agree more!
