Airports can be a strange place at times — and if you’re looking for a good laugh, you’ll be sure to find one. Like this guy, for instance. This guy turns an uncomfortable situation into something he can use — an ordinary airport chair into a fancy footrest.
Using his backpack as a pillow seems quite uncomfortable, though. We wonder why he chose that as his main source of comfort for this cat-nap. A rolled-up sweatshirt could have been a slightly better option, no? Either way, mad props to this guy for absolutely not caring what anyone thinks, and here’s hoping he doesn’t have a stiff neck when he wakes up!
Bears on the Runway
Welcome to Alaska! Onlookers were freaking out when they saw this polar bear on the runway at an airport in Alaska. It’s not uncommon for airports to have issues dealing with bird strikes, but issues like this one in icy Alaska are a bit rarer. Just look at what's going on here...
This polar bear somehow found his way onto a runway at Utqiagvik. Airport personnel are not authorized to haze or chase the protected marine mammals. Security at the airport said they were happy the bears ran toward a snow dump rather than airport buildings or equipment, where they could have been a danger to people outside vehicles.
Sleeping in airports can be dangerous or illegal, but spending overnight in the airport is a cheap travel choice some people make. That is not to say that it is comfortable by any means. This is not a night at the Ritz. In fact, I can’t really imagine a worse place to sleep.
This cuddly duo, for whatever reason, decided to cozy up and sleep right here on this bench. I wonder how many minutes of shut-eye they actually clocked while using each other as human headrests!
Making Chairs Into a Bed
I’m parking right here for the night! When you are tired and you have to catch long-haul connection flights, there is absolutely nothing worse than not having a warm, cozy bed to snuggle up in and sleep off your jet lag while you wait for the next leg of your journey.
But there’s always one solution as a last resort, you can create a makeshift bed out of airport furniture. While sleeping in the airport is actually not legal, this tired traveler found a way to get a little bit of shuteye. Major props to her!
An airport is a place where you can find a number of people sleeping just about everywhere, and I mean, why not? Take this lady, for instance... This lady is out cold in this wooden chair. It sure does not look comfortable, but it does not seem like she cares one bit.
She has kicked off her shoes and put her feet up, literally. You have to wonder what made her feel so at home in this little airport chair. Maybe she has one just like it at home. Maybe she is just flat-out tired. Either way, you go girl!
