“I just wish in the future I can have the same kindness in the airport.”

I will have 36 hours of flights and layovers to try and troubleshoot it. But I guarantee, I guarantee on the way back, I’m going to be such a mess, I’m going to be crying in NAIA. I’m going to be crying in the airport, in the terminal, in the plane. Last time I flew back from QC to Grand Rapids, I literally — I was sat next to this grandma. And they gave — they were passing out this like Haagen-Dazs ice cream. I don’t know. I don’t feel like — at the beginning of the flight like Haagen-Dazs, and I was crying, like I was sobbing in my seat quietly, but albeit very, very distressed. 

And this poor little lady, she looks at me, and she does not speak any English — I do not speak any Thai, because she spoke Thai. And I just — I was just like looking at her, and she looked at me, and then she was like going over to like the, what is it? What is it called? What are they called? Stewardess? I think that’s — flight attendant. Flight attendant. And she’s like, she’s like gesturing for like more, and so she got like all these Haagen Dazs, and she gave them to me, and I was like, “No, no, like I’m lactose intolerant, it’s fine.” And she’s like, “No, no, no, no take it, take it.” And I was like, “Ope,” so then I just had all of this Haagen Dazs, and it was kind of a beautiful moment.

But I also was like, I feel so bad whenever I feel distressed in public that I’m like visibly, visibly crying, because then I feel like people are like, “Oh you poor thing, like, how can I help?” And I genuinely don’t know, like, I genuinely have no idea. But the Haagen Dazs, the Haagan Dazs was a very nice surprise. She was so sweet. She was so sweet. Um, I just wish in the future, can have the same kindness in the airport. Otherwise, it may not be as enjoyable as a journey.
