Now that airlines are practically charging more to check your luggage than they are for the actual ticket, many passengers are trying to bring WAY too much in their carry-on. I’ve also noticed that the airline staff never enforce the size limit of your carry-on luggage.
You see, the problem all began with the luggage industry’s discovery of the wheel. This enables tiny, attractive, narcissistic daddy’s girls to pull carry-ons the size and weight of sleeper sofas onto the plane. And, yes, I understand that men and women have different needs when they go on a trip. As a guy, my packing generally involves stuffing two pair of clean underpants in my laptop case. That’s pretty much it.
I have a solution.
No more wheels on carry-on luggage. Wheels on carry-ons should be as illegal as guns on an airplane.
After all, it’s a carry-on piece of luggage – not a wheel-on.
If you’re unable to CARRY your carry-on from the shuttle to gate K-42, then you don’t need to be hogging all the overhead bin with it.
