Man Gets Caught Fat-Shaming Passenger During Flight, Ends Badly For Him
Nov 7th, 2019
Traveling is not all fun, especially if you have to do it by air. Even though there are plenty of ways to get you from point A to point B, flying is the most convenient and the fastest way to get to your destination. It sounds like a perfect solution but it doesn’t really go well sometimes.
There are flight delays, rowdy kids running around throughout the flight, or being stuck with a person sitting next to you who is not really a fan of sitting alongside other people. This can get really uncomfortable.
Savannah Phillips has been traveling for three weeks and when she boarded the plane that day, she did now that she will be sitting next to a person who would make her feel bad about herself. As soon as the plane was up in the air, the man sitting beside her did not hold back on the insults that he’s throwing on her. It was beyond hateful.
As soon as she got off the plane, she decided to share her story on Facebook.
According to her story, she was on her way to Chicago but it was not her original flight. When she travels, she makes sure that she chooses a seat in advance so that she does not have to sit next to anybody as much as possible. She said that she may not be the biggest person on that flight but she was not also the smallest.
She said, “My worst nightmare is someone being uncomfortable because they have to sit next to me. ”
The seat that was given to her on that flight made her nervous because she ended up sitting next to an old man who claimed to be a comedian. He looked like he was in his 60s and nobody can ignore him because he was wearing bright yellow sunglasses.
He looked harmless but Savannah did not expect that he would turn out to be the kind of person that she would end up feeling uncomfortable sitting next to.
While the flight attendant was giving instructions about safety, the man pulled out his cell phone and started texting someone. Savannah did not mean to eavesdrop but he had a pretty large phone and screen was too bright to ignore. But what she saw shocked her. The man texted someone saying that he is sitting next to a ‘smelly fatty.’
As soon as Savannah saw this, her heart dropped. She turned away but those words cut deeply. Savannah is used to dealing with negative thoughts regularly because of her size and what the man did only make it worse.
She also wrote:
“Before I knew it, I could feel hot, salty tears coming down my face. I sat and cried silently, hoping this guy didn’t try to make small talk, because I didn’t trust how I would react and I didn’t want to get kicked off the plane. I was so hurt. The pilot came overhead and said there would be a 30-minute delay before he could take off- great. Just more time I would have to sit next to this creep.”
She can’t stop herself from crying and she was hoping that nobody would notice. But suddenly, a man tapped the old comedian on the shoulder and asked to switch seats with him. When the comedian asked why, the man said, “you are texting about her and I’m not putting up with that.” Before the comedian can respond, Savannah’s unknown rescuer shoved him out of his sit and sat down next to Savannah.
The man encouraged her to not let what the guy did get to her. They chatted all throughout the flight and he shared that he happened to see what the guy was texting and decided that he had to do. After getting off the plane and sharing her story on Facebook, she tried looking for the man and she found out that his name is Chase and he is from Nashville.
Savannah was grateful that she met her hero that day.
