There’s arguably nothing better in this world than grandparents – and this granddad has proved exactly that, by leaving the internet in tears with a simple act of kindness for his granddaughter.

TikToker Kay was visiting her granddad in Scotland one day, when she told him she felt uncomfortable driving back onto the main road because of fast moving traffic.

At 18, we can assume she hasn’t been driving for too long, but even veteran drivers among us can appreciate just how intimidating pulling out onto a busy main road can be.

So, in a typically magical grandparent fashion, Kay’s papa decided to help her in the most adorable way possible – by acting as her own personal traffic light, letting her know when is safe to pull out.

Honestly, it’s the little things in life which just fill your heart with warmth.

But, this simple act of kindness was far from a one off, as Kay’s papa now makes his way over the road to the other side to signal for his granddaughter every single time she goes to visit him.

“My papa stands there every time to tell me when to go because I told him one time that I don’t like the junction,” Kay wrote alongside the clip.

Sharing the video, Kay added that her papa’s thoughtful act was her ‘favourite part’ about going to visit him, and it’s not hard to see why.

Unsurprisingly, the people of TikTok were also left melting, with one commenting: “This just cements my theory that granddads are actual angels.” It sure does.

“My papa used to do this too, even though he lived on the quietest road. Anything to keep his grandbaby safe,” another commented.

Meanwhile, many others reminisced over memories with their beloved papas who are no longer with us and urged others to cherish their memories.

We’re not crying, you are.
