People have different reactions to seeing others argue in public settings: some might look for a way to remove themselves, others might move in closer for unobstructed viewing.
Eavesdropping may not be polite but when you are stuck waiting at an airport and a couple starts loudly arguing next to you it can be hard to resist listening in.
This is exactly the situation that Kimber Dowsett, who goes by "mzbat" on Twitter, found herself in. The cause of the argument was so unbelievable she just had to share it online.
The topic of the spat was finances — a common point of disagreement among couples — but this wasn't just your regular old money worries.

According to Dowsett, the woman had been offered a promotion at work but her man didn't like the idea of her earning more money than him.
He reportedly wanted her to turn down the job and that is when things started to get intense.
After this comment, Dowsett reported that the woman's reaction quickly changed from "not wanting to jeopardise the relationship" to throwing her plane ticket in his face.
Once the argument was over, Dowsett wrote a message of support for the unknown woman, urging her to continue chasing her dreams and to not let anyone hold her back.
The Twitter thread soon gained a lot of attention and people were quick to share their own messages of support for the mystery woman, with many of the responses being from people who are in a relationship where the woman earns more money.
