We get that #gameislife for some, but one man took his hobby to the next level by plugging and playing while waiting for his flight — using one of the airport’s monitors.
A man waiting for a flight at a Portland,Ore., airport decided to pass the time by plugging his PlayStation 4 into one of the terminal’s displays until airport staffers said “Please Nintendon’t do that.”
The photo was taken by Stefan Dietz, who took the photo around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday at Portland International Airport.
“I couldn’t believe it. You’ve got all these monitors there and he’s playing a video game,” Dietz told CNN.
Airport spokeswoman Kama Simonds said the monitor usually displays a map of the terminal.
“He politely asked personnel if he may finish his game” when airport staffers to disconnect the gaming console, Simonds said.
The man complied when he was told no.
“We would love travelers to plug into our power outlets, but just ask that they don’t plug into anything else,” Simonds said.
The way airport security is set up these days, that man was bold.
