Come On Eileen

> 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, his name is
> Kevin."
