As the child screams for sweets, biscuits, and cookies, granddad croons in a controlled voice, “Easy, William, we won’t be long . . . easy boy.”

After another outburst, the woman hears the granddad calmly say, “It’s okay, William. Just a couple more minutes and we’ll be out of here. Hang in there, boy.”

At the checkout, as the little horror is throwing items out of the trolley, his granddad says, “William, William, relax buddy, don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five minutes, stay cool William.”

Impressed, she goes outside and sees the grandfather loading his groceries and the boy into the car.

She stops by his car and says, “It’s none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don’t know how you did it. That whole time you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive your grandson got, you just calmly said things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his granddad.”

“Thanks,” says the grandpa. “But I am William. That little hooligan’s name is Kevin.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
