So, one of the things that I've been neglecting to share is something I have noticed while commuting: People bring a lot of luggage with them.
I'm often surprised by the lady with a pocket book/shoulder bag, a
laptop case and a little suitcase on wheels that they're dragging around
behind them, or the guy with the rolly suitcase, the gym bag and the
laptop case. I watch them navigate down the train aisle... bumping into everyone and trying not to, or just bull in china shop motoring through the train station to get where they're going fast.
People travel to work on a daily basis with more
stuff than I take away on a week's vacation.
And I have to ask... do we really need that much crap? I mean, maybe they're lawyers and they have a ton of stuff in the rolly case paperwork wise that they HAVE to bring with them places. But I get the feeling sometimes that it is gym clothes (the dead give away is the yoga mat strapped to the side of the suitcase).
When they get to their destination, do they really use all that stuff or is it a just in case situation. Maybe there is a change of clothes to go out somewhere fancy after work with the girls.
Maybe they never get a chance to get to the gym, or go out for cocktails at Nebo, because they're always just too busy.
But... they're prepared.
