There was nothing stopping this American Airlines employee from dancing.
People are finding all kinds of ways to pass the time while waiting for their planes to take off.
For the boyfriend of one Twitter user, the time was passed making a new friend.
Twitter user @bricheeseyy, who later said her name was Brianna Kolbe, shared a video of her boyfriend, Robert Meadows, playing rock-paper-scissors with a tarmac worker while waiting for their plane take leave Atlantic City, New Jersey.
She shared the video with the caption, “My boyfriend literally has no problem making friends with anybody…”
The video has been viewed more than 6 million times and has been retweeted more than 150,000 times. It had been liked more than 900,000 times as of Monday evening.

In an interview with Time magazine, Meadows said he’s ready for a rematch with the tarmac worker, identified by the magazine as Spirit Airlines worker Allain Bantaya.
Bantaya shared a photo of himself Monday afternoon with the captain: “Some heroes don’t wear capes.” He replied to Kolbe’s video with “bro ur boyfriend was trashinggg me.”
“People always have a kid in them and you just have to find a common ground,” Meadows told Time. “I feel like rock-paper-scissors-shoot is such an easy common ground that everyone can relate to. Everyone kind of just needs to have a good time.”
Another Twitter user replied to Kolbe’s video with another video of Bantaya playing rock-paper-scissors with someone else.
Kolbe’s video generated some positivity on Twitter on Monday. A few replied letting Kolbe know her content was what they preferred to see on the social media platform, and many agreed the video was cute.
