Boy with cerebral palsy's day is made by thoughtful cashier


It may seem like a mundane task, but this California teen's day was made when a grocery store cashier invited him behind the register to help check out a few purchases.

Andy Robinson, 14, of Temecula, Calif., often has trouble doing things because of his cerebral palsy, but he loves lending a helping hand whenever he and his mother are at the store.

"When Andy and I go grocery shopping, he always wants to push the cart until it gets too heavy for him, and he gets a little upset," his mom, Jeannie Robinson, told "At the checkout, he usually helps unless there's a line of people and we're kind of in a hurry, but he tries to do what he can."

This time, their cashier at WinCo invited him behind the counter to try his hand at checking out a few items.

"She offered to have him come behind the register," Robinson said. "He was more than excited to bounce behind [the register] and couldn't contain his laughter."

Andy could be seen in a video shared by his mother with the widest grin, as the cashier, Shaeleane, helped him scan some items.

"To me, it meant more than just him getting to scan a few items. It meant he's accepted, he's included, he receives attention for his smiles," Robinson said. "He's still over the moon about it."
