I don’t usually ask you to share my post, but this time PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE SHARE IT. I want it to reach that person, whoever he is.
As you may know, Momzilla was suppose to arrive to Shannon, Ireland at 15th of December. To make it funnier, we miscounted the days and we thought she will be here day later. But her trip wasn’t fun at all.
She stayed in Guangzhou, from where she flew to Beijing, then London and finally she was suppose to arrive in Shannon. Every single time she travels alone we are scared – she’s a tiny older lady who speaks no English. The night before her journey Sing was trying to explain the roman alphabet to her – she didn’t know the difference between ‘1’ and ‘I’. To make matters worse, the travel agency she chose, picked a terrible flight. Not only it had two exchanges, but the one in London was only 1.5 hour long.
In that little short time she was suppose to pass the security, immigration and get to the right gate. I don’t know what changed in last two months, but apparently now you also need a ‘security sticker’ to get to your airplane. She almost made it. Almost, but got blocked right at the gate.
Air China staff was already off (and the airplane doors didn’t want to open for like 20 minutes), Air Lingus didn’t care – they just flew without her, I cannot even tell if anyone tried to look for her.
And then HE showed up. The Airport Man. During the day he’s just an ordinary person, but at night he helps old ladies to get to their destination.
Can you believe that man? He spend so much to call from UK to Ireland 3 or 4 times, those were really long calls. He run with Momzilla between airport staff, went to check possible flights to Ireland. He even wanted to go and help her get a sim card so she has a way to contact us.
He checked her invitation letter in case of any typos she could make rewriting it. In the end he helped her get another ticket, took care of her documents, made sure she gets to the right gate. He even made it possible to get free transfer to Cork.
I don’t know who you are, I wish to know it. I hope you can read this post – thank you so much. World needs more people like you.
Kind people, who want to help others and expect nothing in return. There are no words that I could use to describe how thankful I am for what you did.
I know I sometimes complain about Momzilla, but I wouldn’t want anything bad happen to her. I’m glad The Airport Man was there for the whole time. I wish you could see how Sing was relieved when we got help.
Thank you! Dziękuję! 萬分感謝!
Again everyone, please share this post. I really hope The Airport Man can read this.
I also hope you can be The Airport Man to someone else. We need more acts of kindness, not only around Christmas.
