We’ve all seen a rom-com or two that goes something like this: guy meets girl and falls totally head over heels in love. Then the girl starts to fall in love with the guy, too, but then the guy does something stupid and the girl decides to go on that year-long trip for school. So, she heads to the airport, and the guy knows if he’s got any last chance of being with her – this is it. So, he rushes to the airport to win her back, and he usually does.
Some of these signs are super cute and would make nice additions to those Rom-Coms. Some of them are just plain crazy and would make you look twice if you were to walk past one at the airport. We’ll let you decide for yourself which are which!
Anna’s got 99 problems and this guy is definitely one of them.
Oh, man, poor Anna. All she wanted was for her next-door neighbor to pick her up from the airport after her 10-hour flight back home.
Too bad he has a terrible sense of humor.
What’s up, bro?
This guy and his brother-in-law are super tight, you just might not be able to gather that from this picture.
But hey, at least they are close enough that they can joke around like this!
Brand new daddy
This baby is about to meet her father for the very first time, so she decided to make him this sign! Just kidding, but how adorable is that?
Something tells us that this day will go down in history as one of his best.
Simon says buh-bye
Well Simon, you honestly should have known better before you bought a selfie stick. Britney, we fully understand your disappointment. See you later, Simon!
Don’t worry, you certainly have the tools to keep yourself occupied.
Holiday mug shots
These cousins chose the worst pictures of each other in existence for this sign. On the upside, they got what they wanted for the holidays!
We’re kind of interested to know what their idea of a fun time after dinner is, though. Mud wrestling, perhaps?
This dog mom came home to an adorably designed sign with a pretty awful message.
Guess she’s going to be sitting on the ground when she gets home!
Welcome home, new mommy!
This dad got trolled pretty hard by his kids when they decided to make him this little gem of a sign.
We’re pretty sure he turned a few different shades of red.
This military wife who can barely wait
This soldier’s wife has been deployed for a year, and she’s ready to get reacquainted, like – NOW!
It’s pretty safe to say that he’s more than willing, too.
This enormous head on a stick
Well hey, at least there are zero chances that Mokie misses that sign.
They can also probably repurpose that thing afterward to terrify some children on Halloween.
This super pumped army wife
This guy was definitely excited to return home to this sight! We don’t blame him, who wouldn’t be?
A. Neal reporting for booty, sir! Err…miss.
Love on lockdown
Or you know, in lock up. No more ramen noodles for this mom. Yay!
On the plus side, mom is probably super buffed up now – you’d better be on your best behavior, kids!
Definitely Michael Jordan
Okay, maybe this guy is just waiting for his son, who by the way – is not named Michael Jordan at all.
Or, maybe he wasn’t really waiting for anyone and he was just hoping to catch the basketball car on his way off of a flight.
This fetishist waiting for his Mistress
This guy totally has a thing for public humiliation. He probably paid for his dominatrix’s plane ticket, and for the chance to hold up this brightly colored sign.
Yes, it’s definitely a thing!
This Star Wars fan dad
Rebecca asked to have her face blurred in this picture because she was, “totally embarrassed,” my dad’s costume.
Hey, we actually think it’s kind of cool! When dad has the force, you should probably try and stay on his good side!
This Instagram savvy dad
His daughter was super impressed that dad even knew this word.
Also, her eyebrows were totally on fleek. Thanks, YouTube!
This incredibly sweet brother
Tell us how you really feel about your sister Jody.
Nah, we’re sure this is just another one of their inside jokes. If you happen to have a brother, we’re sure you can relate!
These super honest bros
So, they may have made one little mistake while their friend was out of town. At least they were upfront about the situation.
Let’s just hope that her brother is cool enough with whoever did the knocking up, otherwise, they may be in for some trouble.
This grateful husband
“Welcome back, honey. It’s so…nice to see you,” he says, as he holds this sign up in her face. Aww?
Kind of makes you wonder where it is that she went away too, though, huh?
This jerk of a friend
But now everyone is very much aware of what kind of addiction Chris is in the grips of.
Yes, pun intended. Hopefully, poor Chris was able to beat it. Hehe.
Be careful what you wish for…
This guy, who is waiting for…okay, what is this guy waiting for? Oh, it’s a heavy metal band? Phew.
Still, that sign seems to be sending very mixed messages.
Tom’s friend who wants to be more
This guy keeps dropping hints, but Tom is either blind to his admirer, or he just keeps putting him in the friend zone on purpose.
Or maybe Tom isn’t interested, buddy.
Hugh Jarse? I’m here for a Hugh Jarse
We wonder if this guy was the butt of a joke or if he knows what he’s doing there.
Well, hopefully, his party showed up either way.
I’m not smiling, are you smiling?
Well this chick is definitely smiling. And we’re kind of creeped out, so we’re just going to catch a cab.
Let’s just back away very slowly…
This girl’s boyfriend was sweet enough to pick up the medicine she asked for but mean enough to blast her about it on this sign.
If she really did need Imodium, though, that must have been one super uncomfortable flight.
This guy thinks he’s really hot stuff, holding this sign up for his wife. She actually really loved it.
Or, maybe he’s just trying out a new method of finding women.
Welcome to the north
We wonder if they had some delicious poutine with them for the welcome party? Mmm, poutine.
If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out, eh?
These 20-year-old orphans
We hope that they were able to find a family with huge hearts that could raise them as their own.
Poor children, they’re so hungry and cold!
He may as well be holding a sign that says, “looking for chlamydia.” Or hey, maybe…
Nope, that’s pretty much what it says, dude.
This intelligent baby
Oh my god, this baby is a genius! Look, he wrote this sign all on his own! I guess mom is as funny as she is hard to handle.
We’re sure that soldier is glad to be home with Kaden, who potentially has a future in graphic design.
This true friend
We’re really digging the fact that he knows his 90’s pop culture. We truly appreciate the reference.
Unless of course, that’s really the name of whoever he’s waiting for, and in that case…why, mom?
This Willy Wonka weirdo
This guy was picking up his buddy, who actually owns a chocolate making factory. That’s some serious commitment.
Although, it’s also possible they’re headed to a killer party at the club.
This bittersweet symphony
Hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right? Cheers to this guy for having a portable margarita stand!
Except, we just see the mixer, where’s the most important ingredient, bud?
Poor, poor mumsy
This woman came home to a loving daughter and a lazy husband. We hear she did a 180 and took another 2 days’ vacation.
Maybe it’s time to invest in a Roomba?
Best friend keeps it real
If we know one thing about their friendship, it’s that it’s honest! And a little bit sassy, too. We like it.
Although if you think about it, a lot of people can probably relate to this sign.
This new catch-phrase
Okay, so you’re going to start saying this right? We’re going to start saying this.
Hey dude, you’re the duck’s nuts – duck yeah you are. Aha, take that, autocorrect!
Someone’s going to learn today
Okay mom, do you like washing dirty underwear? No? Well uh, time for some lessons in the laundry!
Looks like it’s time for a store run, too. Always, always keep backup undies for emergencies, kids.
This super festive suit
Wow, that’s one brightly colored suit. It’s so bright that Kris Kringle has on his shades!
He doesn’t really need a sign, he can just wave.
This awesome bromance
He chose the neon colored poster board and everything. We admire the kind of friendship these guys have.
But judging by that drawing of a beer mug, it seems like maybe this won’t be the last time this happens.
It’s the motion of the ocean
But poor Richard apparently has one little boat. Maybe he got in trouble and this is his punishment.
Hey, at least he seems to be taking the whole thing in stride…no matter how little the thing may be.
These roommates decided to dress up and go all out to pick up their buddy. We give them five stars.
After all, who wouldn’t want to be picked up by the Men in Black? Well, except for little (and big) green space aliens…and all other space aliens.
The sign says one thing...
And the kids’ body language and faces say another! But we all know who really wrote the sign.
Hint: mom. The kids are ready to go home and have some cookies.
Clans and Kilts
This guy took a trip to Scotland and returned to this. Hey, at least his friend made an effort.
Or maybe it’s his brother, Gavin McGregor.
Welcome to the Sunshine state, Sarah.
We’ve got beautiful beaches, palm trees, and alligators lurking around every corner!
You’re so hilarious
This guy’s friend decided to get a little creative with his sign. His friend is straight. So is he. Nah, just kidding.
Very nice work on the bubble letters, boys!
This super sweet husband
His wife thought this was adorable.
So did the group of single 40-year-old divorcee traveling through the airport on their way to an Alaskan cruise.
Now under CIA interrogation
It was all fun and games until the feds got involved. Apparently, his friend’s name was Eddie. Oops.
We’re sure they didn’t hold him underground for too long…probably.
What we meant was, boo-hoo. Okay, we sort of meant both.
Let’s head straight to the bar for some stiff ones, yeah?
A new language
This says something, she swears it. It says, “welcome home, daddy, you’re my favorite person ever!”
Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
When you’re waiting for your boss
They’re just following orders, man. Their boss can be a real nightmare. Seriously, though…that’s some major commitment.
Here’s to hoping that whoever got off of that plane was dressed like Darth!
“Aww, C'mon, mom.”
This mom embarrassed her son through the entire train station. She asked a few people to take pictures along the way, too.
But did you have to wear the feather boa too, mom?
When you finally meet your online friend IRL
And he picks you up from the Israeli airport, Natbag with this sign that just makes you say, “WoW!”
Enjoy the battle for Azeroth, you two.
When you get the whole family involved in grandma’s recovery
Except grandma was really just in Las Vegas, and she definitely wasn’t the slightest bit sober.
On the upside, though, she did hit pretty big in a few casinos! You go, granny!
This trio of giddy military wives
So glad everyone was prepared! Well, almost everyone. We’re looking at you, Martha in the middle.
But if she didn’t make that sign in advance, where did that shoelace that’s keeping it around her neck come from?
A blonde walks into an airport...
And gets snapped spectacularly holding this sign the wrong way.
Somebody grab the sunscreen because this blonde burned herself pretty badly. Ouch!
This amazing name that we hope is real
“Gleeballs, paging Gleeballs. Dan Gleeballs.” O-M-G, please let this be his real name.
Poor kid probably had a tough time in high school, though…
This sweet girlfriend
This girl went to the airport to pick up her boyfriend and their best friend.
She didn’t want the friend to feel left out…we hope. Or hey, maybe it’s a poly thing.
This big baby in a onesie
These parents forgot to leave an extra box of cereal in the basement kitchen for their overgrown crotch goblin.
Hopefully, this is just an inside joke in this family!
Ugh, rideshares with strangers can be the worst.
We hope Alice wasn’t too uncomfortable on her way home. At least no one had to sit in the middle seat, though!
The best little brother ever
This little guy really is just interested to know.
How was the food? Did anyone try and shank you? He has questions!
In your face, ICE!
Although we sincerely hope that this sign was created solely for protest, and not because the person who made it was really missing a family member.
Whatever the reason was, they put a lot of effort into it.
Musical cab seats
We know that this is a band, but we’re still not sure if we would step foot inside that guy’s cab.
He could be a serial killer with a great taste in tunes and a nice sense of humor.
This sort of sad new mom
We hope that she’s not caught up on her post-baby weight!
Ladies: you are beautiful just the way you are! Plus, that dress is adorable, momma!
This sign that is weird and inappropriate
Hmmm…we’d say that sign tells about one thing too many about the person who it’s for.
Now we can’t stop imagining things. Please send help!
A big thumbs up
Hey, we know we’re super excited! Steven, Taylor, everyone, ready?
Okay, and how amazing are the little thumbs up? Yeah, we think so, too.
