When you see a novel warning sign, it’s almost always in response to something a person actually did. No one thought to warn anyone before some idiot came along. Occasionally these sorts of signs make you really wonder about people, like “this motorcycle contains no edible parts” and cartons of eggs that warn “this product may contain eggs” (or jars of peanut butter that flag, “may contain nuts or nut products”).
Who are the people who need to be told “this electric drill is not intended for dental use” anyway?
Austin’s South Terminal is a separate structure from the main terminal, less than three quarters of a mile away but a 7 mile drive. It currently serves Frontier and Allegiant. This sign was just spotted in the men’s room there:
Traveling on a low cost carrier really is a different experience (although even Spirit Airlines pays the higher rents of the main terminal to avoid flying from here). I just have to wonder, what were Frontier and Allegiant passengers doing? And how would this even work?
I think what the airport is saying is that it’s not possible to social distance and have more than one person use a urinal at once, because standing side-by-side means people are too close – so take turns at the urinal, one at a time.
If I was designing an airport low cost terminal restroom, I’d just place a sign above the urinals, “Don’t eat the big white mint.”
