“I assumed that a man in a business suit wouldn’t be patient…”

I dunno, I feel like I’ve been complaining a lot lately. So here is one of those many feel good stories that you see if you live on the web. It’s about an autistic child and a business traveler. I can relate, as I have flown more than a million miles on business:

Shanell Mouland, 36, from New Brunswick, Canada, uploaded a note to her blog Go Team Kate last Thursday detailing how the mystery passenger engaged her three-year-old Kate in conversation instead of ignoring her.

“Thank you for not making me repeat those awful apologetic sentences that I so often say in public,” she wrote. “Thank you for entertaining Kate so much that she had her most successful plane ride, yet. And, thank you for putting your papers away and playing turtles with our girl.”

Sometimes, putting your papers away is the right thing to do.
