8. Do not place food or drinks on the charging station
Because they spill. Kinda like you don’t put a TV by the bathtub. Only in this case, your stupidity endangers more than just yourself.
9. If you have kids, keep them at least 10ft away while you’re charging
Because you’re going to be too worn out to corral them, and in their furious excitement over being in an actual, real-live airport, they’re probably going to snag a charging cord and send someone’s computer crashing to the ground. And “sowee” (you know, sorry) isn’t fixing a $2,000 laptop.
10. Do not occupy a seat at/near the station if you aren’t charging something
Some people other than gate agents need to do actual work in the gate area. Others like to shop for matching “I Love Milwaukee” trucker hats. It doesn’t really matter what the people who need the charging station are doing, but they rank ahead of someone who just wants a nice view of the tarmac.
