Toilets’ automatic flushers can be quite scary for toddlers as they flush without warning! So, when a 3-year-old girl in Kansas was told to use it before heading home, she refused until a stranger intervened.
Tiffany Miller wrote her experience on her Facebook page of how a stranger gifted her daughter, Ainsley, with a bracelet so that the 3-year-old would agree to use the toilet located in a McDonald’s joint before heading home.
Miller wrote: “To the Woman in the Salina, KS McDonald’s bathroom:
“You heard me as I reasoned with a 3 year old to use the bathroom. You heard me tell her we had a long drive home and she needed to use the potty.”
As Miller was trying to convince Ainsley to use the toilet, a woman stepped in and told Ainsley she would give her a bracelet if she uses the “potty for Mommy.”
The post continued: “She perked up and agreed. I turned to quickly put her on the potty (before she changed her mind). You told her the bracelet would be waiting outside the stall for her.
“I turned to say thank you, but you were already gone. Outside the stall was a bracelet and a mini Snickers bar.
“Her eyes lit up as she put the bracelet on after using the bathroom.”
Speaking to KSNW, Miller recalled: “So we went out in the lobby trying to find the lady. We couldn’t find her anywhere. I didn’t see her in the parking lot.”
The family headed home with Ainsley still wearing the bracelet and “sleeping soundly” when she was put to bed after reaching home.
As Miller couldn’t thank the woman personally, she wrote her story on Facebook and hoped that the woman would see it. “Thank you for your kindness! I wish I could have thanked you in person, but maybe you will see this. If not, hopefully it inspires someone else to be kind like you were,” the post reads. Miller added that Ainsley woke up the next morning and still remembered the woman, telling Miller, “Oh! My bracelet from her! That was so nice of her!! I LOVE IT!!!”
