Overheard in the Airport

Overheard over the PA system in the Las Vegas airport: “May I have your attention please? Will the passenger who left his false teeth and hearing aid please report to the nearest customer service counter? Will the passenger who left his false teeth and hearing aid please report to the nearest customer service counter?” Long pause. “That’s assuming, of course, that you can hear me, I guess.”

  • Until this, my previous favorite had been a long rambling announcement in a department store in English for a couple of guests that were clearly part of a group of foreign tourists.

    Over and over. Over and over.

    Finally someone else came over the loudspeaker (is a foreign language) made a short announcement and then it was over.

  • Loved the story, Mark. It has been a long time since I checked your blog. I was delighted to find you still writing writing it, but was was surprised to learn you and Clyde are no longer in Jackson. If you have a chance shoot me an email. I would love to catch up and find out where “Midtown” is. Johnny
