Teo Jordan, a senior at Holmes High School and employee at Kroger, demonstrated that no good deed goes unrecognized in his neighborhood by helping a man pay for his groceries.
After school, Teo, 18, bags groceries at the Kroger in Covington, Kentucky. The teen had only recently started working there because he is attempting to save enough money to buy a car.
He was working the checkout line when he noticed an elderly man going to pay for his goods but unable to afford to carry everything home.
The old guy had to make the heartbreaking decision to inform the cashier that he would have to put some of the products back because the total of the items had over $100.
Young Teo Jordan made the decision to intervene at this time. His initial thinking as he recounted the incident to WCPO 9 was, “I got $35 in my pocket, and I’m just gonna give it to him.”
Teo’s kindness at that precise moment enabled the old man to purchase the food he desired. Even though the high school student didn’t intend for this out of kindness to garner attention, it has.
Teo, a senior at Holmes High School, intends to attend the University of Kentucky to study marketing. Teo’s mother, Stephanie, is happy that he has been paying attention to the lessons she has been trying to impart in him.
