Backpack Rant

Jump to last reply

Just got back from Rome via AMS and ATL. I spent two extra days in an airport hotel due to being rescheduled by Hurricane Sandy. Ergo, I shall admit to crankiness, but I have to post the following somewhere:

Dear Everyone Who Carries On A Backpack:
Hi! Yesterday in my 24 hours of travel I was conked in the head or body checked by a backpack more times than I can count. If you are going to wear a backpack, be aware that IT EXTENDS OUT FROM YOUR BACK (duh!) and when you turn, people minding their own business are hit, whether you're in line or moving down the aisle of an airplane. Please be more considerate. Thanks.

Okay, I feel better.
