No one is more surprised than Flynn. On Sunday night, she saw the young woman at the checkout stand remove three of the four large boxes of diapers in her shopping cart and put them aside because the store wouldn’t price-match the items. (The mom had seen the diapers advertised for a lower price at another store, but Walmart would only match the cheaper cost for the first box.)
Flynn, 73, placed the three boxes back in the mom's cart and paid for them.
“I thought, ‘If she needs diapers, she must have a little one.’ Little ones are close to your heart when you’re a grandmother,” Flynn told TODAY.com.
The mother tried politely to decline the help, but Flynn said she knew she could make the $120 purchase, so she did.
