The Good Grandpa

THE GOOD GRANDPA............
A woman in a grocery store happens upon a grandfather and his poorly behaved
3 year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that Gramps has his hands full with
the child screaming for candy in the candy aisle, cookies in the cookie
aisle; same for fruit, cereal and soda in their respective aisles.
Meanwhile, Gramps is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice,
"Easy, Albert, we won't be long -- easy, boy." Another outburst, and she
hears Gramps calmly say, "It's okay, Albert, 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 Gramps again in a controlled voice is says, "Albert, Albert, relax
buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, Albert."
Very impressed, the woman goes outside where Gramps is loading his groceries
and the boy into the car. "You know, sir, 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. Albert is very lucky to have you as
his grandpa." Thanks, lady," said Gramps, "But, I'm Albert -- the little
bastard's name is Steve."  I'm going to beat the shit out of him when I get
him home.
