This blog post comes from the air. I went home to New Jersey this weekend to visit my boyfriend and now I’m on my way back to U of M.
Everyone knows that airports and plane rides are no fun, so I set out to make some people’s trips just a little better.
I let a hurried man cut me in the security line. I moved my seat at the gate so a husband could sit next to his wife. And I swapped seats with a woman on the plane so she could be more comfortable with her child on board.
The first man and the third woman were so appreciative. They made me feel like I had really done something nice. The flight attendant even offered me a snack only available to first-class as a sort of thank you for helping the overwhelmed mother.
The couple didn’t seem all that thankful, but it still made me feel good and I consider that a win.
