Slice 4 Visual learner needs clearly marked visual aids

   Just got back from dropping my two adult daughters at Newark Airport.  It was my first time there and I felt like a lost child following the directions on the signs.  We found a sign that said simply, Departures.  That’s what we wanted.  All is good.  Oh wait, an employee sweeps by saying this line is for group departures go over there.   We go to there. The sign says simply, Departures.  Five minutes later the man in front of us said the line was for Group Departures.  Moved on to the next line  where it said Departures AND it said baggage check.  Bingo in the right line since my daughters were departing and they had a bag to check.  But wait…. An employee sweeps the line and says must have boarding pass to be in line.  Oh!  Now one of us has to go to a clearly marked area that says Self Checkout Boarding Passes.  Do that and get back in baggage line.  Guess what? When you check your bag you can print out your boarding pass at the same time! I think they don’t post it because they want to keep it a secret and surprise you in the end.

    From one visual learner to another: Things continue to change rapidly–maybe that’s why there are no real directions!! I like your humor at the end though. Great slice!

    Airports are so annoying that way. Like some secret language that they don’t want anyone to know. I’ll never forget being in the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris with 45 minutes to get through passport control, security, and catch my flight. I desperately tried to read the signs but was dismayed when many of them just led to dead ends!
