I've spent quite a bit of time traveling this year, which means a lot of time in airports and a lot of time to people watch. Last week, I observed some interesting behavior while waiting for a connection at LAX and by the end, I found it somewhat hilarious.
It was around 9 in the morning at the American Airlines remote terminal and a couple of individuals were so comfortable in the gate area, I actually felt like an intruder in their living room. Now of course, if there are massive delays or it's really early in the morning or really late at night, you might see people sleeping on the ground around the gates or trying to get comfortable on the chairs in the gate area, but this was a little different.
I started Snapchatting the situation to a couple of friends who were also traveling that day and realized that things were getting weirder and weirder - so much so that it was pretty hilarious to watch.
What follows are my (quick and random) snaps of the situation over about 40 minutes, which was really one of the odder ranges of behavior I've seen for grown adults at an airport.
What do you think? Is this appropriate behavior for an airport gate area?
Just a twenty-something with a full-time job and a full-time obsession with traveling. It's best to LiveTraveled.
