The video showed the man walking with a green holdall in one hand and his daughter, clad in pink, being dragged along the floor in his other hand.

He appeared unfazed by the situation as he continued to look straight ahead while walking around the airport.

The girl allowed herself to be dragged past the baggage carousel with her arms folded, without making any noise or commotion.

A passenger walking closely behind looked on at the situation in confusion while most travellers took no notice.

The person who recorded the footage said: “I was waiting at Dulles International Airport to pick up my girlfriend on New Year’s Day when I noticed this father literally dragging his daughter through the airport by the hood of her jacket.

“She wasn’t screaming or anything, just hanging out while another girl, presumably her sister, was walking 20 feet behind her out of embarrassment.”

The clip was shared on Reddit, where it received more than 121,000 upvotes, with many users expressing that they had “been there” too.

Another user, thatswiftboy added: “Another Dad here, can confirm that is a normal “Done with your sh*t” moment.

“My daughter is a toddler and has discovered tantrums. It’s been “fun”.”
