A mother has praised an Aldi cashier for his random act of kindness befitting her autistic son.
Sydney woman Melissa posted in the Aldi Mums Facebook group to talk about her experience in the Seven Hills store of the supermarket with her son Henry.

“My kiddo did very well, but ran a little at the end of his rope by the time we got to the cash register.”
Melissa said the cashier was patient and understanding even when Henry walked away and she had to chase him through the store.
“He could see that I was juggling my son and encouraging him:” Just stay there, buddy, we’re almost done, “her position continues.
“When I apologized, he said,” That’s OK, I’ll pause as much as you need. “
Melissa praised the rest of the Aldi employees who helped and the customers waiting in line for their patience in line.
“None of them was aware of my son’s challenges and how hard we both worked to get through the store,” she wrote.
“They were all just nice and patient for a complete stranger.
“It made our experience so much easier and more relaxed than it could have been.”
Melissa’s post made dozens of supporting comments, many looking for the helpful cashier to give him the acclaim he deserved.
“You have to tell the store manager, so that this employee can get some praise,” is one comment.
“Do you have time to send this to Aldi’s headquarters? This young man must be recognized! “says another message.
