Holidaymaker Skips Two Hour Queue At Airport By Pretending He Needs A Wheelchair
| Last updated
A bloke did the unimaginable by pretending to have an injury so he could use a wheelchair to skip ‘two hour’ long queues at a Turkish airport - you can see a video of him in action here:
Wolf Jenkins pretended that he had sprained his ankle when flying out from Milas-Bodrum Airport on 16 June by removing his shoe and sock and putting on a limp.
The 28-year-old was then asked by airport staff if he had a fight to fly form, but told them he had only hurt his ankle on route to the airport and that he could walk if necessary.
However, the staff got him a wheelchair and pushed him around the airport before he took his seat on the flight.
While he was aboard, he and his friend were then given rows to themselves so Wolf could stretch his leg out.
Wolf filmed his stunt and shared it on TikTok where it has since gone viral, racking up more than one million views.
Wolf said: “I flew from Bodrum to Bristol at midnight. When we arrived at the airport the queue was out of the door and we knew we would have missed our flight.
“I’d say around a two hour wait to get through security and check in at least. The queue outside of the airport was insane, I didn’t expect it at all.
“I saw people in wheelchairs being pushed through so my friend waited in the queue and I went outside and took off my shoe and sock.
“I then limped back towards the door and a member of staff asked me if I needed assistance so I said I had twisted my ankle at the hotel just before getting into my taxi.
“I was then ushered through security and to check in immediately and they asked me if I had a fit to fly form but I said I have only just done it and that I could walk if necessary.
“But they said not to worry about it and let me through.
“We were originally in separate parts of the plane but they gave us a whole row of six seats to sit with each other and the staff were the same as who had been on the flight out there so they remembered us and were extremely friendly.
“It was all just a way to get through and make sure we didn’t miss our flight.”
Well, Wolf's viral post has certainly received a mixed reaction online, with many hailing his actions: "Work smart not hard."
Another even said: "Get your money's worth lad!"
However, some weren't impressed, with one user saying: "Imagine pretending to need a wheelchair. My son actually needs a wheelchair and it's not something anybody should be pretending about.”
