What Airline Employees Really Think Of Your Luggage
If you're doing any dead zone travel this week or next, don't think that just because the airport is empty everyone's happy to see you. Nope, a tourist is a tourist is a tourist--at least according to humor site Holy Taco, which has put together a handy compendium on what people are thinking when you travel.
While the inner monologues of taxi drivers and baggage handlers giving your suitcase the Rex Grossman treatment are funny enough, we got the biggest laugh out of what every airline check-in agent must think at least a dozen times an hour:
Is that the only baggage you’ll be checking? Let me tell you about how we’re charging for that now, so that you can act really shocked and outraged, even though there’s not one thing I can do about it, and you already knew about this months ago because every news outlet in the entire world has reported on it.
Our tip? Don't be that guy. Brush up on the rules before hitting the airport, either at your airline's official website or on FareCompare's airline fee chart. And if you want to skip the judgy airline employee altogether, check in online before leaving home. You can even do that if you plan to check bags; just drop them off at the designated counter when you get to the airport and you're on your way.
