According to the American, the briefcase suddenly “beeped” on one of the scanners at the airport when he was heading to the Golden State for Thanksgiving. The man recalls that he tried to persuade his grandmother to tell him what was inside, because he knew that during the flight he might be asked at the control. But grandma was adamant.
“The guards asked what I was carrying. I had to tell a strange story about a mysterious gift and my grandmother. However, this alarmed them even more. When I opened two gold-plated clasps with trembling hands, I saw a vintage typewriter inside. After that they let me go,” recalls the American .
In new videos on social networks, Gaffney shows his subscribers exactly how he uses this unusual gift. The man wiped the typewriter from dust and purchased special paper.
Netizens praise the man that despite all the risks, he kept his word.
“It’s so nice that you listened and didn’t open your briefcase,” wrote one commentator, attracting a large number of approving reactions.
