My wife came home from work yesterday and shared a very touching story that one of her office colleagues told her about a recent trip to the airport. (Make sure you read to the end!)
As he and his wife waited in line for ticket sales, he overheard a man at the counter trying to get a ticket to Las Vegas. I was having trouble. He only had $ 150 and that was not enough. The ticket agent was quite unhelpful and told him that he needed to go online and look for other options.
The man kept trying to explain his situation to her, but was getting nowhere. His English language skills were limited, making it difficult for him to communicate. He was getting more and more frustrated and she was getting more and more indifferent.
After finally, dejected, he stepped away from the counter, my wife’s colleague, Fernando, approached the man and asked him what was wrong. He speaks Spanish, so he was able to understand his story.
The man had lost his job here in the San Francisco area, had no place to live, and only $ 150 in his pocket. He had family that lived in Las Vegas and was trying to get there. They told him that he could get a ticket for $ 150, but he told Fernando that he could not read, that he did not have a computer and that he did not know how to access the Internet from the airport, let alone navigate how to buy a low fare. fare ticket.
Fernando believed him and wanted to help him. They walked back to the counter and Fernando bought a $ 330 ticket to Las Vegas for the man.
Fernando didn’t ask for anything and trusted that this guy’s story was true. He followed his heart, because he wanted to help him. And most importantly, it did.
May this incredibly kind gesture from a stranger, who paid attention and cared enough to hear this man’s story and take some action, be a turning point for you to get back on track.
He was a Good Samaritan helping another who was unlucky, probably an immigrant, definitely a human being, so that he could have some security, improve his life and be with his family.
Not only that, a month later, when Fernando’s wife was checking the credit card statement, she saw the charge and asked her husband: “Wasn’t that ticket $ 240? Why is the bill $ 330? “
Fernando responded timidly: “I improved it.”
