For John, BLUF: I can see tired and frustrated airline passengers not doing well in this situation, but that is when a sense of humor is most important. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede plus one:
Basically anyone who has ever been to an airport knows that finding an open power outlet can be one of the most stress-inducing aspects of flying. So it should come as no surprise that people are freaking out over this power outlet sticker prank."Basically," if you can't take a joke, life is going to be very hard.
Thanks to one beleaguered traveler’s commitment to exposing this diabolical trick to the world, a photo of one of the fake sockets has gone viral. “Whoever put up this fake sticker of an open outlet at the airport, you are now my enemy for life,” Twitter user Brandon Ewing captioned a photoset of himself discovering the ruse.
The up side of this is that it might prompt various airport managers to do some rewiring.
As a note, the video at the top of the story has nothing to do with the story.
