Observations from an airport

Loud obnoxious screaming crying children remind me why I don't want kids.

I'm grateful of the parents that at least remove their loud obnoxious screaming crying children from the immediate area.

If somebody leaves their wheelchair unattended long enough, it will be removed. And the passenger is surprised by this! What's the point in the wheelchair if you're going to walk everywhere?

Books make the time go by.

Good looking fellow passengers make the time go by even better.

Coffee is the beverage of choice at 5am.

Women who are craving cigarettes at 6am are adamant that everyone is scheming against them personally by declaring the airport a non smoking location.

Some TSA employees like their jobs; others obviously only keep the job to make sure everyone else around them is miserable too.

Kids who wear differently camouflaged hat, shirt and pants must not look in the mirror before they leave the house in the morning. And camouflage? What are they hiding from? Their tragic fashion sense?

People will talk about the most personal things in the loudest voices when they think no one is listening.

Some people like the color pink way too much.

Happiness is an empty seat next to you on the plane.
