    A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3
    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 pop 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 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, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and
    Granddad says again in a controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy,
    don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, William."

    Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his
    groceries and the boy into the car.

    She said to the elderly gentleman, "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 he got, you just
    calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very
    lucky to have you as his grandpa."

    "Thanks," said the grandfather, "but I'm William .. .. . the little bastard
    s name is Kevin."
