A mom named Savannah Philips was on a United flight from Oklahoma to Chicago when things took an unexpected turn. The man seated next to her was texting on his phone, and Savannah happened to catch a glimpse of his brightly-lit screen. She saw he’d just sent a text message to his wife with two distinct words: “smelly fatty.”
Savannah’s heart sank as she instinctively knew he was talking about her. She usually dreads sitting next to people on flights and thinking she’s the cause of someone else’s discomfort.
Not wanting to cause a scene, Savannah cried in silence and quietly wiped the tears from her eyes.
But she wasn’t the only one who saw the mean text. Another passenger — a complete stranger named Chase Irwin — was sitting across the aisle. He watched Savannah read his text and noticed her wiping away the tears. He says he felt sick to his stomach and couldn’t believe the cruelty taking place in front of his eyes.
Savannah, however, was absolutely blown away by what Chase did next. Absolutely incredible.
