I was waiting for my flight when I heard the following announcement—
“Whoever left their walker at Gate D12, please return to get it. It CAN NOT be left at the gate.”
I looked up from my book, wondering if I had somehow misunderstood the message. If a walker was needed to get to the gate, surely the owner would need it to walk away from the gate. Right?
The announcement came on again, and my curiosity was now piqued. How far had the person gone? Would they walk back to the gate if they heard the announcement?
What if they got tired?
I kept my eyes glued on the walker until my flight was called, but it remained unclaimed. Another unsolved mystery at the airport!
