Easy boy

Hi Terry, hope you enjoy this one and thanks for visiting 4paws blog, and Marge, is it Marge memyself? if so I can't locate your blog. but thanks for visiting too.

A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badlybehaved 3 year-old grandson.
It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming forsweets in the sweet aisle, biscuits in the biscuit aisle; and for fruit,cereal and pop in the other aisles.
Meanwhile, Gramps 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, 
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the buggy, and Gramps
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 hisgroceries 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 
kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you 
as his grandpa."

"Thanks, lady," said the grandfather, "but I'm William....The little b******'s name is Kevin."
