Thoughts while shaving

If you fly frequently you can relate to this, and maybe you’re one of the “offenders”?  People have more carry-on luggage than ever before and bigger than ever. Maybe it’s because they charge for luggage now although it makes little sense if you’re already paying several hundred dollars for your ticket. Another reason, probably, is to avoid waiting for your luggage when you arrive, although with the long walk to the carousal these days, the luggage is there before you. The elderly and young girls SHOULD check their luggage because they usually need help getting it into the overhead bins, holding up the boarding process. If the plane is full, sometimes before boarding, airline personnel will walk around “pink tagging” larger pieces to be “checked” and picked up when deplaning, because there would be no room in the overheads when the plane is full. THEY get personal luggage service at no charge!!  I have no idea where they put the “pink tagged” luggage.
