    Well not this time! Southwest Airlines is getting some major kudos for (literally) saving the day after a woman forgot her bridesmaid dress.

    You see, Taylor Kenney is a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding in Costa Rica. But she forgot her dress in Houston. So she tweeted this out:

    Her unlikely petition got a ton of attention after people started “liking” and retweeting her plea on social media. Then the airline got to work, even providing followers with a tracking number.
