Nick was working his evening shift on Friday night when the incident occurred, as CBS News reports. When the woman and her children approached Nick he simply asked: "One of those days?"
The woman was visibly nervous and didn't want to hold up the line any more than she had to. She apologized to Nick before pulling out a WIC card. A WIC card is a part of a federal program that supplies food to new mothers who aren't able to afford to provide food for their children.
She then explained to Nick that she had never used a WIC card before and was unsure about how it works. Nick swiped the card several times, but the card wasn't working. It was apparent that the woman had items that could not be paid for using WIC. That's when Nick decided to do something that most people would never do. Nick paid for her food.
The woman used Facebook to express her gratitude towards Nick.
You can see Nick tell his side of the story in the video below.
