ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Airports can be frustrating and make people grumpy.

But, that couldn’t be farther from the truth for a man returning to Colorado from a hunting trip in Alaska, according to KTUU.

He went to a spa at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, and got an hour massage.

“He was sad because he said that he only got a wolf and his friend got a bear and a moose,” said massage therapist Kaleigh Hansen. “So, he thought he deserved the massage more.”

The bill was $120. But, the man was feeling generous and added on a $5,000 tip.

“Even my coworkers quadruple checked,” said Hansen.  “They asked him ‘Are you sure? Did you put too many zeros on there?’ But, he told them it’s what he wanted to give.”

Hansen says she will do nice things for other people with the money, like the man did for her.  But, she plans to save most of it.
