VIDEO: Woman melts down after missing her ferry in B.C.

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Jan 21st, 2015


An video recording of a woman’s overly frustrated reaction after missing her ferry in British Columbia has gone viral.

The unidentified woman, with her suitcase in tow, stands at the counter, and then begins yelling “You have no idea! You don’t understand!”

As she walks away from the counter, she begins shrieking, “You don’t understand what this means!” and screams “I’m so mad,” as she storms out of the terminal, stomping her feet towards the end of the video.

The video was posted on Monday to a Facebook page called Spotted in Victoria.

So far, it has been viewed over 663,000 times with over 7,200 shares and over 5,100 likes.

“She had a little temper tantrum after finding out that BC ferries were full!,” the post reads.

However, according to a report, BC Ferries said the woman missed her boarding time to Vancouver Island by three minutes.

The video was reportedly recorded on New Year’s Eve.

While some commenters chuckled or expressed bewilderment at the incident, others were more sympathetic.

“I don’t find this funny. It’s sad how other people’s problems and distress become everyone else’s entertainment,” one person wrote.

“Poor woman. something is obviosly [sic] upsetting her in her life that has nothing to do with BC Ferries. My first thought is that there is some kind of emergency. I don’t find this funny,” another wrote.

Toronto police also weighed in on the post, saying “What value is it? Be kind.”

    I agree wit the comment offered by spokesman for Toronto police: Be Kind! Kindness costs nothing, but can be an invaluable gift offered to the distressed person in a time of emotional turmoil.
