That is a quality human being right there.

That's the most kick-ass story I've read in over a year.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Bravo, sir. Bravo.

Bravo, indeed. It's nice to see stories like this, as they restore my faith in humanity.

Air travel represents all that is wrong with modern civilization.

This gentleman represents all that is right.

What this man did was awesome and I totally agree with all of the folks on here who say the same. That said, it's comments like these that make me lol and help on some of the longer days :)

The guys job: ACS is a global leader in business process, outsourcing, and information technology services.

...so this guy is responsible for who knows how many layoffs leaving struggling families out to dry in order to pay pennies to those working in developing countries. Yet he helps an old woman and all is forgiven? I think not.

/ya, I just pissed in the coffee.

Every dollar spent on an old lady is a dollar not being spent on a giant robot sex doll with artificial, but realistic, scent glands.

Poor Elsie.

Had to return to Winnipeg in winter.

So what you're saying is this: Not only does this guy get positive press and publicity, but he's gonna win an Oscar too?

I'm using adblock so I didn't notice. I actually white list Fark (along with other websites I like with advertising that isn't in your face), but I'm currently using my girlfriend's computer, so they're blocked. I guess I won't be turning them off on here tonight.

I was the recipient of a similar Good Samaritan incident in Chicago.

My flight out of Denver to O'Hare on Christmas Eve was delayed by about 30 minutes for some random reason, so when I landed at O'Hare I missed my connection by what must have been two minutes. I went over to customer "service" and was informed that was the last flight home that night, and there were only two on Christmas Day, a 1:00 and an 8:05. And of course United was going to blame it on the weather and not help us out, despite the fact that my delay was not weather-related at all (the customer service agent just pointed to the weather map behind her with a scowl on her face.)

Fortunately, I found a middle-aged couple behind me that had missed the same connection. We decided to try renting a car and driving, but after two hours of searching everyone we could find in the frigging city of Chicago was out, so we biatched to a different United agent and they put us up in the Hilton. We rode the CTA and walked a mile downtown through the ghetto in full-force rain to get booze to drown our sorrows, then watched A Christmas Story together.

We caught a flight out at 1 PM Christmas Day. Without them, I would have been completely alone in a strange city for Christmas.

Sometimes people aren't dicks, especially when they're in the same boat.

/cool story, bro

My husband was in the Dallas airport that day, on his way back to Iraq :( Glad it turned out better for this sweet old lady.

Germeyer quietly arranged for Clark to get off the plane first with him

I think he just wanted a excuse to be first off the plane

Don't blame him; far too many businesses *want* to outsource in the first place. No idea if that trend has changed lately or if we're still outsourcing like when it was the hot new thing to do.

But, but, but all rich people are a-holes, right?

You're not supposed to get it in your eyes, use a tissue.

I approve.

I'm guessing the guy paid for the lady's room and board out of his pocket, not out of some ACS slush fund. I'm wondering, though, if he's just characteristic of ACS, whose education support services division administers my student loan repayment plan. I used to be with Sallie Mae, which was bleeding me dry and treating me like shiate. I consolidated with ACS, which always answers any queries I have immediately, gets me my tax info and other necessary paperwork in a timely manner and with a minimum of fuss, and has lowered my interest rate twice just for paying on time. My loans will be fully discharged by September next year. If I were still with Sallie Mae, I'd be paying them off well into retirement.

/yeah yeah, cool story, et c.

He did it only because he missed Santa's Nice List this past Christmas. Srsly though, very, very nice of him.

I didn't see the Co$ adds but these t-shirt adds popping up are atrocious. The products aren't funny or original. They're friggin stupid. I hope I never see anybody wearing one of the douche covers.

FTFA: "I had to use my cane just to walk to the bathroom."

What an asshole! Who puts an old woman up in some hotel suite that forces her to walk so far to reach the bathroom??
