There's nothing like a good samaritan story to remind us that despite all of the angst and hate in the world right now, there is still hope in humanity.
According to a 'Love What Matters' post submitted by Kevin Leslie, a father was travelling with his two year old daughter over the weekend when he was held back at the airport because his toddler didn't have a ticket.
The young father was under the impression that his infant could fly for free as she had just turned 2 in January, after he had already booked the tickets. He made it clear to the agent that he wouldn't be able to rebook the flight or buy an additional ticket on such short notice."He stepped aside and tried to make a few calls. Hugging his daughter and grabbing his head, you could tell he was heartbroken." wrote Leslie.
Thankfully, things took a turn for the better when a woman standing next to the distraught dad asked what was wrong. After a chat, they walked up to the counter together where she offered to buy the little girl's ticket.
According to Leslie, she pointed back at his daughter and said, "I wanna buy her ticket." The agent asked her: "You know how much this ticket costs right?"
The woman responded "$700 something?"
''$749" the agent said.
The woman then proceeded to pay for the ticket with her credit card. The relieved dad asked for the kind woman's contact information so he could pay her back but she kept saying "don't worry about it."
Although the woman wanted to remain anonymous, she was later identified within the comments as Debbie Bolton, co-Founder and Global Sales officer at Norwex - a company that sells home cleaning products.
