I want to send a universal thank you to everyone who has allowed a frantic traveler to skip ahead of them in the security lines at the airport.
Due to a family tragedy, we were racing to catch a flight at the last minute. The overwhelming majority of people allowed us to skip ahead to the front of the line with no disapproving looks or grumbling under their breath about failing to plan ahead, allow time for lines, etc.
You never know the fellow travelers’ situation, and travel is always a little stressful. Those understanding people made a difficult time just a little less so.
