Walmart cashier pays for family's groceries

"It just it shocked me and I didn't know what to say", Jordan said, "I still don't know what to say". "She said, 'Let me bless ya'll tonight'". Ashley Jordan took to Facebook on Saturday, February 18, to share the random act of kindness by Columbia, South Carolina, Walmart employee Sharnique Dasant that helped out her family.

"We're usually in and out, but Sharnique is such a wonderful woman, and we've become close!" she says.

According to a People magazine article, Ashley Jordan, a 27-year-old SC mother of 3, usually visits the big box retailer every two weeks to shop for her young family.

"She got in front of me and it's like I saw a different face on her", Dasant said, "and I just had like a little man on my shoulder that was like 'give her $100 dollars, give her $100 dollars'". "I didn't even know she had hard times or was on hard times or struggling or any of that".

Jordan said after their shopping trip, they knew everything was going to be OK because "there truly are good people out there". "I said 'ma'am, God told me to give you $100.' And she was like, 'What?' I said, 'God told me to give you $100", Dasant said.

Dasant didn't know anything about Jordan's other two children back at home either: Cayleigh and Aubreigh.

Dasant said "something" told her to do something nice for the family, who was checking out with two carts. We have the money. "I can't remember exactly what she said but it was along the lines of you must have a big family y'all have a lot of stuff".

Though we haven't heard boo (yet) from officials at Walmart, it goes without saying that a minimum wage cashier just schooled their entire PR department on the fundamentals of humanity.

Dasant later told local news station WLTX that it was her faith that inspired her to pay for the items.

The Jordan took a picture with Desant and posted the story to Facebook.

"There's really nothing special about us".

"Today me and my Husband Michael Jordan went to the Walmart on Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, SC".
