Greenville, SC — The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office shared a story about a call that made one deputy’s day on Wednesday.

“Not all calls that we go to are in progress robbery and murder calls,” the agency posted on Facebook Wednesday. “As a matter of fact, the vast majority are quite ordinary in nature. So within the busy shift of answering call after call, just one like this will totally make your day as a deputy.”

The call was from a 2-year-old girl who needed some help getting dressed and chose to bypass her parents’ assistance in favor of someone who knows a thing or two about the importance of a uniform.

Luckily, Greenville County Sheriff’s Deputy Lohnes wasn’t far away.

“This little 2-year-old girl dialed 911 without her parents knowing,” Lohnes recounted. “I show up and she comes to the door with her pants half on, saying she can’t get them on. So I sit down on the stairs and help her put pants on. And then she proceeds to ask me to pick her up and hug her…and that would be the best part of my shift today.”
