Delilah Cassidy is a former social media manager for Revenge of the Birds, a writer and SMM for a number or sites and a big fan of Arizona sports.
She has been on vacation, working her way through Europe and was ready to come home… At least she thought she was:
WOW okay so the most amazing thing just happened to me and I can’t help but share it with the world. American Airlines instituted a new policy where you have to pay to take a carry-on onto the plane. Which is ridiculous but off topic.— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
I consolidate my bags into one and they measure it and say it’s just a little too big. They proceed to charge me $50, except they only take credit card, no cash. Since I just got back from Europe all my cards are being declined as Chase doesn’t know I’m back.— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
They tell me that I’m going to have to miss the flight and head back to the ticket counter to pay down there. I’m pleading, devastated after a long day of travel. Then, this man walks up and says, “How much is it?” They tell him $50 and he says “I got it.”— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
I’m astonished and tell him it’s fine not to worry and he hands the lady his card as the American Airlines employees stand in silence shocked by this man’s generosity. They swipe the card and he tells me to have a great flight and hop on board.— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
I’m crying as I write this and as I board the flight. This man was an angel. I stop him as he’s sitting in first class and try to give him my money but he just shook me off and told me to pay it forward.— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
My heart is so happy. There are good people in this world. Be that person for someone because I know after this I sure will be.— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
Poor Delilah just wanted to come home and of course things were a little crazy for her.
Having just traveled, I can relate to the overwhelming feeling when you here you won’t make it to your original planned destination.
However, a good samaritan stepped in and sent Delilah on her way.
Of course as it came to be, that good samaritan was…
Update: It was Jermaine Gresham. pic.twitter.com/aJ0bXoNm8Q— Delilah Cassidy (@Delilah_Cassidy) May 30, 2018
We’re glad you had a good trip, Delilah, but also glad to have people like Jermaine Gresham on the Arizona Cardinals to cover.
Now, enjoy the viral tweet thread as there are plenty of big names who have retweeted this great act from Gresham.
