Everyone has gone through a long travel day and dealing with a serious hassle is the last thing anyone wants to do on those days.

Delilah Cassidy was having one of those days. She tweeted through her experience that ultimately had a great ending.

Unaware of a new policy that her airline charges for a carry-on, her bag was measured and deemed too large, so she was charged $50.

Coming from a trip overseas with no cash, the ASU grad Cassidy’s bank declined her credit cards because her bank hadn’t recognized she was back in the states.

Begging for some way to get through the situation without having to miss her flight, a man walked up and asked how much the charge was. The man paid the charge, and it turns out that it was Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham.

Cassidy attempted to pay back Graham when seeing him on the flight, but Graham refused and told her to pay the good deed forward.

Several members of the Cardinals and NFL community reached out to react to Gresham’s generosity.
