A woman at the airport was just minding her own business when she noticed a man having a really bad day. The man was with his toddler and basically told he could not get on the plane unless he purchased an additional ticket for the child. Since he bought the tickets before she turned two-years-old, he was under the impression that she was still able to ride the plane for free.
Nope. That's not how it goes according to the airline. You have to be a certain age at the time of the flight for that to happen. A simple misunderstanding leaves a man and his child stranded. He's unable to afford another $749 for the extra plane ticket. He explains he doesn't have the money on such short notice. That's when the woman nearby takes action.
The woman nearby does the unthinkable. She offers to buy the extra ticket for the child. But that's $749 - can she do it? Her response is priceless "don't worry about it."
She is an inspiration. Of course, not everyone has an extra $749 laying around, but this is one of those amazing stories where someone really melts hearts across the country.
Here she is. Whomever she is, thank you!
A woman standing in line at an airport witnessed a heart-broken father unable to buy his toddler a plane ticket. What she did next had the agent "talking about her goosebumps".
The story was posted on Facebook by Love What Matters, a site that collects real stories from real people with the motto "Love always wins".
According to the post, a father was checking in for a flight when the agent asked how old his daughter was. She had just turned two, so the agent asked for her ticket. "The man was confused, because he was under the impression she could ride for free," the post said. He had purchased the ticket before she turned two.
The witness describes an emotional scene. The father was hit with emotion and said he was unable to afford the $749 ticket on such short notice. He was hugging his daughter, and holding his head. He stepped aside to make phone calls, when a stranger approached him. They talked quietly.
A few moments later, the stranger walked up to the counter with the man and said she wanted to buy the ticket. "The agent kept talking about her goosebumps while the man hugged the woman and asked for her name to repay her. The woman just kept saying, 'Don't worry about it.'"
