This Airport Picture Has Gone Viral For All The Right Reasons [PHOTO & STORY]
This morning, I was strolling around Facebook and I came across a picture with a gazillion shares. I didn’t click on it right away.
Then, I saw the same picture over and over so finally I clicked the link to see what all the fuss was about.
I was immediately so glad I clicked so I wanted to share the story with you.
A man was boarding his flight when the airport worker asked how old his daughter was. He told them she was two-years-old. Then, he was informed that she would also need a ticket for herself.
That alone is a complete travesty to me. You’re telling me that a two year old needs an actual ticket when everyone knows she could have easily sat on his lap. What a bunch of crap! Sorry, I guess the dad in me came out.
That’s not the worst of it though. He asked how much a ticket would cost for his daughter, and the worker told him that it would cost nearly $800.00.
EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS PEOPLE.
The man was quickly overcome with emotion. He simply didn’t know what he was going to do. He did not have the money for his daughter, and he had no way to possibly get her on that plane.
A woman near him heard the whole thing, and noticed how upset he was. She walked over to the man, spoke for a moment, and they returned to the counter together. She told them that she intended on buying the plane ticket for the little girl. Immediately she was asked, if she knew how much the ticket costs. The woman acknowledged how much it costs, and pulled out her credit card.
The rest is history.
Below is the picture that everyone is talking about, with a little more of the back story according to a witness.
