A girl made her stepdad hand out a “care package” and apology to passengers on his flight to deal with his heavy snoring.
Grace Smith, 17, courteously put together the packets containing ear plugs, chocolate and a note to say sorry for 10 flyers to try and block out Alan Tattersall’s horrendous sleeping noises on his business trip from Melbourne, Australia, to Houston, Texas, which takes 32 hours.
In the hand-written apology, Grace wrote: “Hi. Enjoy your trip today. We thought you might be in need of a little assistance if Alan falls asleep – so hope this little care package helps.
“Love and blessings, Ros and Grace. P.S. the snoring usually only lasts a short time – while he falls asleep.”
According to UniLad.co.uk, Grace said: “At times, Alan’s snoring is pretty loud. It’s when he’s falling asleep – it can be pretty serious.
“He was in full swing one night before he left [to go to Houston], which is what convinced us the packages would be a great idea.
“He was due to take his first international flight a few days later.
“I’d heard of mums giving out little care packages when they have babies on planes – acknowledging that their infants might be crying.
“He’s used to me joking around and we thought it’d be a good idea to make some packs for Alan to hand out before take off.”
Alan, 62, thought it was a bit “cheeky” and doesn’t think his snoring is that bad.
