Is this airport comedy?

The sign in the Seattle-Tacoma airport concourse says:

Why must I show my ID?
Identity is important. We need to make sure that the name on your ID matches your boarding pass.

Dear Sea-Tac:
Your sign merely restates what you’re doing. It does not provide any further insight into your question at all, much less provide an answer.
A Traveler With a Brain

Who does this?

I was going to grab a can of orange juice from the refrigerator at work this week, when I found the can below on the shelf. You’ll notice that someone seems to have tried opening it, but ripped the little opener off the can while it was only partially opened. So instead of taking care of their own mess, they put it back in the fridge. On its side and leaking.

Could we please take a little responsibility for ourselves? I know we’re a bunch of socially inept nerds, but this does not make us helpless children.


Very funny, United

There are two flights leaving Madison for Chicago around 7pm tonight. Mine on American Eagle at 7:00, and another slightly later on United Express at 7:21.

The time is 6:59 and we are still sitting at the gate with no plane in sight. The gate agent for the other flight comes on the PA system and says, “This is the final boarding call for United Express 6716 to Chicago. The doors will be closing in 1 minute for another on-time departure brought to you by United Express.
