Denver International Airport has a distinctive way of paging passengers on its concourses:
Mr. Smith, Mr. Charles Smith; Mr. Atkins, Mr. Derek Atkins; Mr. Sorkin, Mr. Aaron Sorkin – please dial zero on an airport courtesy telephone.
The familiar rhythm is oddly comforting.
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport also demonstrated a distinctive way of paging passengers during my layover there:
Charles Smith, please go to the nearest phone and dial 911 for a very important message.
I’m not sure how Charles Smith reacted, but I sure didn’t find it comforting.
