I have written about a similar topic “What do we call this” sometime back.
Yet this is quite different from my earlier post.
I was at the airport the other day to see off my wife. (yay…..:)) .
She was all tired and wanted to sit down, and we approached a near by bench. Apparently the bench was occupied with BAGS. I asked the person standing next to it, if it was his bag. He said ‘aha’ and looked the other way.
I asked him “Could you please move your bags so that we can sit down?”
He nodded hesitantly and moved the bag a little.
I asked my wife to sit down.
I mean what are these benches and chairs for??? to keep our baggage?
Its funny because, we put our bags on the road, trolley it all over, but yet when we see a place which is meant for people to sit, we keep our luggage instead.
How much can it hurt if you have to move your luggage for another person to sit?
I guess it’s the story everywhere, railway stations, airports, bus stations or even at the doctor’s clinic.
