There are quite a few stories and videos circulating online that show how some baggage handlers at various airports mishandle people's luggage, throw them around or even open them up to remove things in some instances. However, a video that shows the complete opposite has gone viral all over social media. A video posted by Janine Brand on Facebook shows the airport handler going an extra mile and meticulously handling luggage at a conveyor belt. Since being posted on September 6, the video has collected over 1.2 million views and counting.
The video shows the airport worker, named Ephraim Sibeko, bending over a conveyor belt at Lanseria International Airport in South Africa and placing the bags in an orderly manner, even turning them over if the handle isn't facing outwards.
"If you have ever traveled in your life, I'll bet you 1000 bucks you've never seen anyone treat you or your luggage like Ephraim," Ms Brand says in the post shared along with the video. "He turns every single bag so that the handle of the suitcase is facing forward. All you do is grab and go," she adds.
She even asks everyone to "stop, thank and tip him" if you're ever at the airport.
