Bowlin says the man looked back at her and profusely apologized for taking so long.
MS resident Spring Bowlin was waiting in the checkout line at her local Walmart when she said her "heart was warmed".
The viral photo that shows the cashier and the customer counting the change, coin by coin, has since been shared more than 23,000 times on Facebook.
She stayed calm, reassured the man and proceeded to help the man count his change. He then miscounted it and began to get frustrated and apologized to both the clerk and the customer waiting behind him.
Bowlin said the man's voice and hands were shaking, and what the cashier did next made her smile.
NASA launching JPSS-1 weather satellite
This interagency effort ( JPSS ) is the latest generation of USA polar-orbiting, non-geosynchronous environmental satellites. The booster will carry the first in a series of four satellites for the Joint Polar Satellite System, JPSS-1 .
"This gentleman's items were scanned and he was given the total", Bowlin wrote on Facebook.
That's when the cashier took his hands and dumped all of the change on the counter. "'This is not a problem, honey". We will do this together, " the post continued.
After the cashier completed the man's transaction, Bowlin thanked her for being patient and kind. But Bowlin said the cashier wasn't fazed.
"She shakes her head and replies: 'You shouldn't have to thank me, baby. What's wrong with our world is we've forgotten how to love one another", she said, according to the post.
