Pizza has the power to save the day.

We all know this, but the following sweet story only emphasizes this fact of life.


Passengers on an Air Canada flight were stranded for hours on snowy tarmac Air Canada Flight 608 left Toronto bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Monday evening.

Inclement weather forced the flight to divert to Fredericton, New Brunswick. The passengers were stuck for several hours and were growing progressively more cranky, as passengers in such a situation are apt to do.

Then the pilot decided to order pizza.

Jofee Larivée, the manager at Minglers Restaurant and Pub in Oromocto, told reporters he received the call for 23 pizzas topped with cheese and pepperoni.

"We told him we could have them made in an hour or hour and a half," Larivée said, adding that she and her staff were "laughing all night" because no one had ever delivered pizza to an airplane before.

The team made the pizzas and brought them over.

The passengers were pleased!

Passenger Philomena Hughes praised the pilot's action:

"It was something that could have been very stressful; he made it a lot easier. There was lots of help, there were a couple of Air Canada Jazz pilots that were traveling on the plane and they were helping to pick up the pizza and distribute it. Everybody chipped in, so he didn't want to take the whole credit for himself."

She wasn't the only one who loved this:





Kudos to you, sir. That was lovely and thoughtful of you––and it gave all of the passengers a great memory for years to come.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
