Traveling is fun and exciting! There’s probably a bunch of wonderful things that come to mind when you hear the word “traveling”. Maybe it’s a vision of a beach-side vacation or the idea of being reunited with your nearest and dearest.
Flying is exhausting, so, it’s a relief knowing that someone may be expecting you at the airport arrivals. However, in these instances, the passengers got more than they could have imagined.
Have fun looking at these 50 crack-up airport signs that welcomed weary travelers! You never know, next time you’re going to pick up a friend or a relative, you can get some hilarious ideas from this list! Or, some inspiration for how to punish them…
1. Reporting for booty
Even if it’s just pirate booty she’s referring to, they clearly have some catching up to do.
2. Entirely random
Do some guys just get a kick out of this kind of stuff?
Some questions are better left unanswered.
3. Dad jokes
But never fear if you have a dad like this one. He’ll make sure you find your way home ok – that is if you don’t die of embarrassment first.
From the look of this granddaughter’s “Resting Beach Face” shirt, it appears this is about what you might expect if you ask her to pick you up from the airport.
5. Welcome to Margaritaville
We agree that he seems like the best dad ever.
What a way to be welcomed home!
6. Brad’s brigade
It turns out he wasn’t even expecting an airport pickup, they just found out what flight he was on and decided to surprise him.
We bet he was surprised all right!
7. Fertility announcement
“My Air Force brother-in-law is coming home for the birth of his son/my nephew. I’m picking him up from the airport.”
What an interesting way to be welcomed home!
8. Sinister sister
This is how one man’s sister picked him up from the airport in London.
No word on how the ride home went.
9. THAT friend
Would you be looking for a new airport pickup after seeing this one?
Or do you just go with the online hookup implications?
10. Who’s your daddy?
Looks like her mom found a good way to help him recognize her!
We just love this sweet story.
11. Baby momma
We don’t know if that’s his girlfriend or if she’s even pregnant, but it’s safe to say he’s going to blush a little when everyone looks at him like he’s shirking his pre-parental duties.
12. Missed connection
We’re not sure who they’re picking up but it’s safe to say that anyone who saw the sign was confused and a bit freaked out for at least a second.
Imagine taking a long-haul flight, being exhausted, and thinking you somehow ended up on the wrong side of the country!
13. Parole party
Had he been in prison? No.
Will people take a step away from him while they’re waiting at baggage claim? Probably.
14. A compliment out of context
To be fair, we like to be called “smokin’ hot too” – even if we don’t feel that way when we get off a plane.
15. Sassy siblings
We wonder if they’re going to find some loving parents or some mortified parents. Then again, most parents are used to being both!
16. Keep walking
Then again, we might just keep walking so no one thought we knew these folks.
17. It’s all subjective
You’ve got to be careful holding this one up at the airport before some egomaniac gets in your car.
But this Redditor explained:
“My best guy friend came to visit me with his boyfriend, so I made them a sign for when I picked them up at the airport.”
18. The classic
This seems to be the most popular sign of all.
And we’d just like to say congrats to anyone who HAS been to rehab and succeeded!
19. Airport nerds
We’re pretty sure no one thought they had traveled to a mythical planet, but we have no doubt they confused more than one sleepy person who had just gotten off a plane.
20. Bra opa?
Luckily, the cute kid who made it will tell them all they need to know.
This grandson really knows how to welcome his grandparents home in the most mortifying way possible.
Then again, maybe they were at nudist camp – to each their own!
22. Sugar daddy
At least that’s a little classier than picking up any “loose women” at the airport.
23. Welcoming the newlyweds
But that won’t stop people at the airport from giving them a few side-eye glances.
24. A little too much attention
Hopefully, security had a good sense of humor about this one!
25. 10-week surprise
According to the OP, the rest of the waiting crowd got a big kick out of this sign.
26. 5th time’s a charm
We hope dad isn’t tired and cranky when he gets off that plane!
27. Say anything
And if you don’t get the reference, you need to get up-to-date on your John Cusack movies! Especially Say Anything!
28. Never leave us again, mom!
Looks like her family will be happy to see her.
We’re not sure how she’s going to feel when she sees this though.
29. Next level
This is some next-level airport embarrassment. We’re surprised anyone would even want to go dressed like this!
30. Mom Of the Year
Looks like mom is ready to turn the tables.
It’s pretty hilarious if you ask us.
31. Welcome home, bro
And if you did, they wanted to make sure they had a bigger one.
We can only imagine how we’d feel if someone took our worst photo and did this to us.
32. Picking up women
We really hope it’s the former. Although if he gets an offer, maybe he has found his soulmate.
33. Wanted sign
We hope this brother and sister-in-law got some revenge before they traveled home after the holidays.
This is why you don’t let people keep bad photos of you!
34. That takes some guts
That’s an interesting illustration as well!
Maybe no one will follow you into the bathroom after seeing this.
35. Go home
Then again, we’d definitely crack a smile if we saw this kid holding the sign.
36. That’s commitment that melts in your mouth
But does that mean he gets a discount on Oompa Loompa costumes?
37. Reasons to visit mom more often
In fact, according to her son, she made him “walk through the entire airport under her left arm.”
Maybe if you visited more often it wouldn’t have to be such a big deal!
