Rental Car Shuttle

We were on a shuttle bus taking us from LA airport to a Rental Car office when I noticed an odd sign: “No Standees in raised section of bus”. I was baffled. I would have understood a notice that stated “No Standing”, or even “No Standers”. I wondered if “Standee” was even a proper word. It turns out that that it does exist, thus suggesting that buses around LA airport need to address a problem unique to the movie industry.

A “Standee” is one of those free-standing cardboard cut-outs that are frequently seen in the foyers of cinemas. Should you be traveling with a life size two dimensional Keanu Reeves (indistinguishable from the real thing) and plan to travel on a rental shuttle bus, please ensure you pack it or carry it in the non-raised forward part of the bus.
