Imagine spending hours on shopping for gifts, and when you reach the cash counter to make the payment with your card gets locked, the machine won’t accept the pin and you are not carrying any cash in your wallet.

That’s exactly what happened at a Tesco store in the UK when a mother was left is tears as her card pin got locked.


Paula Fletcher, 46, from Liverpool, was doing her last-minute Christmas shopping and had to pay £69 for the purchases but to her shock her card pin got blocked and she was left in an awkward position as she had no cash on her.

However, to her luck, a young girl came to her rescue as she volunteered to foot Paula’s bill.


“I went downstairs to unblock it (the card) but when I came back the girl had paid. I was overwhelmed. I had to sit down and I was crying,” Paula told Mirror.

She revealed that the girl was standing behind her in the cash counter queue. The cashier, however, thought the deed was linked to the 12 days of Christmas that often brings out the charitable side in people.

"I don’t know who you are, but I can’t thank you enough. You are one special person,” Paula posted on her social media page as she thanked the girl.
