Honestly, airports bring out the worst in me. What is it about an airport that turns ordinary sensible intelligent human beings into zombie like creatures who wander around aimlessly and get in the way. My pet peeves –
Checking the arrivals / departures board – Don’t stand right in front of the board so that nobody else can see. Share the space. After checking the board move away. Don’t stand there having a long conversation on the phone because other people want to check their flights too.
Waiting for your luggage at the carousel – How does it help for everyone to stand anxiously at the very edge of the carousel thus blocking anyone else’s view of their luggage. This results in panicked passengers pushing and shoving past people as they chase after their case. If everyone stood behind the yellow line it would be much simpler for all concerned.
Shame but I do feel sorry for her in this picture having spent a night on the floor in Dallas airport.
The techno maniac – Yep, he’s got an ipad, a cell phone, an iMac and he needs to charge them all. Didn’t he think of charging them before he left home? Never mind that he has taken up all the available charge ports. But let’s face it – you have to have power and you have to stay in touch so businessmen will find themselves sitting on the ground in their suits. There’s nothing dignified about travel these days.
Fortunately sometimes it is indeed a laughing matter – airports are like a little unique universe, a collection of the masses and if you keep your eyes open you will come away with a chuckle or two for your journey. Like these beauties –
