36.A woman in a supermarket is walking behind a grandfather and his badly behaved three-year-old grandson. It’s
obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets in the sweet aisle, biscuits in the biscuit aisle,
and for fruit, cereal and soft drinks in the other aisles. Meanwhile, Granddad is working his way around saying in a
controlled voice, “Easy, William. We won’t be long…easy, boy.”
Another outburst, and she hears the grandfather calmly say, “It’s OK, William. Just a couple more minutes and we
will be out of here. Hang in there, boy.”
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and Granddad says again in a controlled voice,
“William, William, relax, pal. Don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five minutes. Stay cool, William.”
Very impressed, the woman goes outside to where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car.
“It’s none of my business,” she says, “but you were amazing in there. I don’t know how you did it. The whole time, you
kept calm, and no matter how loud and annoying he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be OK. William is very
lucky to have you as his grandpa.”
“Thanks,” replied the grandfather, “but I’m William. The little twerp’s name is Kevin.”
