Airports Aren’t Immune To Strange Folk
People do the strangest things in their unguarded moments — and many of these happen at airports. Such moments seem to transcend culture, race and gender and just about anybody from anywhere is prone to making the darndest mistakes that, luckily, somebody managed to capture on camera for all of us to see.
Here are the funniest, most embarrassing and downright outrageous things that people have done while waiting to board their flights. Some of these you’d never believe a person would actually do. Are you one of these people or know anyone who has had the same experience? Feast your eyes on this gallery!
Getting those much-needed zzzs is never easy especially when you’re in a public place — and airports are among the busiest of them all. For one, you have to deal with the non-stop chatter of tourists who won’t shut up or, worse, toddlers throwing tantrums left and right.
However, when you have to sleep you really have to find a way to make it happen. Often, your luggage can be repurposed into a bed or a newspaper transformed into a creative blanket, if not to cover your body, to cover your face so people won’t recognize you.

Parenting Ain’t Easy

Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures
When you’re too tired and spent, you just won’t care anymore what other people think.
Just take this as an example.
Hmmm, it seems like somebody feel asleep on the job — or all those hours of flight school didn’t pay off.
