A Portland International Airport traveler decided he needed a bigger screen for his video games Thursday. And he found one, it just happened to already be a monitor used for official airport business.
According to Port of Portland spokesperson Kama Simonds, who spoke with KXL News Thursday morning, early in the morning, a traveler plugged his Playstation 4 into a monitor that showed a map of the airport.
“That is obviously something that we don’t want to have happened,” Simonds told the radio station, “because travelers need the information that we are putting on the screens for them.”
Operations supervisors approached the gamer, Simonds said, “and very kindly asked this person to unplug and cease using the monitors at the airport.”
According to Simonds, the man asked “very politely” if he could finish his game. Sadly for him, the answer was no.
“Apparently it was a very polite and cordial interaction,” Simonds said, calling it “a good reminder of what not to do at the airport.”
