On my fifth trip this year to Vegas’s McCarran, I saw something I hadn’t seen before. Not at McCarran. Or any other airport, for that matter. But it’s probably been there all along. I may have been too busy watching luggage spin around on those carousels to even notice.
No, it wasn’t the artwork I’m so fond of seeing in airports.
No, it wasn’t the slot machines. Not even Wheel of Fortune that gets you to come over with that methodical TV kinda voice: “Wheel. Of. Fortune.”
And no, it wasn’t all those ads for the headliner shows or even the banner for the Chippendales. (After watching Amazing Race, I always look for Jaymes and James.)
It was something quite simple . . . practical. . . workable — a sign that a chauffeur or greeter held up to indicate who he was looking for.
I’ve seen dozens of these signs, but they were always printed on card stock or affixed to a clipboard. Not the one held by this man (and lots of other guys at McCarran).
In fact, almost all the meeter/greeter folks were holding iPads boldly showing the name of the intended connection on a bright background. New to me.
New to you?
Just a little something unexpected you get to see when you travel!
