Girl stranded at London airport gets creative, finds love … (3 Photos)

For those of you who don't know, Europe is experiencing some of the worst winter weather its had in 25 years. The snow has left over a million people stranded at airports across Europe and England.

I posted the photo above in yesterday's 'Randomness' after which a Chivette named April, who happened to be stuck in London's Heathrow at the time, decided to get creative in theCHIVE comment section.

I must have been sent the following comment thread a hundred times yesterday but now we have an amazing ending to the story...

April sent me this photo this morning. Turns out Americans Richard (he goes by Rich) and April were supposed to be on the same flight, which ended up being canceled. Neither seemed to mind. They “hit it off immediately” and are currently in London having the time of their lives together. It’ll be a Merry Christmas after all.

    Is there anything the Chive CAN'T do? Can it bring world peace? Can it end homelessness? Can it make Lindsay Lohan stop doing stupid things?

      Aw, now wait a second, Androoooo. That last request borders on the impossible. Chive ain't THAT good. Comparatively, world peace is a piece of cake…

    The Chive:
    Bringing lonely strangers together to consume alcohol in airports since 2010!

    It's been one day. They've probably discovered that they hate each other by now.

    Great Christmas Story, Chive. Well done. High fives to all, and a Merry Christmas!

    Anyone else find it a little suspect that neither of them have posted a comment on their own post. I smell a hoax!

    This makes me so happy! That makes at least 4 Chive couples I know of.

    If this is another HOPA hoax I will cut someone.
    I will suppress my inner skeptic and let the warmfuzzies take over.
