Sitting at the airport

When you sit waiting at the gate in an airport you can pretty much be assured that:

  • there will be some guy who plugs in his computer or DVD player and lays down on the floor to watch it as if he were in his living room...
  • a child will cry and whine and whine and cry for a reason that no one - not even the mother - can discern...
  • some guy will be wearing shorts and flip-flops even though there is snow on the ground...
  • someone will get angry at the gate attendant...
  • something will get spilled...
  • when you really want to hear what's being said on CNN, there will be a loud announcement on the PA about some flight departure in another part of the airport...
  • someone will talk on their cell phone for 45 minutes in a loud voice...
  • at least one woman will be wearing gold shoes...
  • someone will be reading a Christian book...
  • a deafening alarm will go off without any explanation...
  • people will jump up and run to board even though the gate attendant said please remain seated...
  • someone will have a new phone or gadget and you will really want one...
  • at least one person will look like he/she just got out of bed and came directly to the airport...
  • a guy in a tie will discuss business loudly over his cell phone...
  • you will stand in front of the counter and at least three gate attendants will ignore you while telling a funny story or discussing the work schedule...
  • at least one couple will be speaking excitedly to each other in a language you don't understand...

  2. HILARIOUS!! Thanks for the laugh!

    Also,

    ~there will be a mother of several children who seems to have an endless supply of snacks.

    ~There will be a couple of people talking very loudly to one another about their vacation as if they want everyone to be jealous.

    ~There will be an annoying person, usually a man, who is the expert on all things travel and flight who tries to instruct anyone who will listen.
