immigrants love MB's

So I was 'taking in the fresh air' down on the tarmac of Orlando International Airport (due to my position, I am granted un-escorted access to that portion of the airport) and I noticed some immigrant cleaners pushing a cart that one of them had tagged up with a magic marker to resemble the features of a Mercedes-Benz automobile (I think it looks a little W220ish). The hispanic guy pushing the cart responded in a weak attempt at english "G500" (that was it, nothing more) I thought it funny enough to capture the image on my camera phone and share with you all.

I used to have the same access at ORD, STL, and DFW until recently. Had all the jetbridge keys too. If I'm not mistaken, photography of any sort around the tarmac was grounds for confiscation of my FAA badge...

That is funny...and they tag their own work gear?

There's an artist in all of us, just waiting to bust loose...

that reminds me, I once saw a gold plated star on the front of a caravan or something, with the matching smaller one on the back.

I had to pull over cause I was laughing so hard!
