I’m on the road with Travel Man this week. Yesterday we took a short flight to the Sacramento airport. Only a little over an hour in the air (we call these up/downs). Everything went fine. Flight was good, got in just a tad late, walked through the terminal to get ourselves to baggage claim.
Oh wait, and before we mosied over to baggage claim Travel Man had to make a mad dash back on the plane. He left his Nexxus tablet in the seat back (this never, ever happens to him). He tried to claim I distracted his “normal” flight check routine. The nerve!!
Now we’re at the baggage claim waiting for our suitcases. Travel Man tells me a little story he read about suitcases being stolen right from the baggage carousel. We’re still waiting for our bags. Finally here comes the big Travel Man bag, his tool box, and we spot my bag with the pink luggage tag at the top of the carousel. Travel Man’s bags come around the carousel no problem, and then we’re waiting for my bag. Waiting, waiting and no bag. So, Travel Man booked it into high gear around the other side of the carousel. I’m watching the people leaving to make sure my bag with the pink tag is not rolling out the door without me. Travel Man gets to the other side of the carousel, and my bag was just sitting on the floor, off of the carousel. The nerve of some people. Someone took my bag off of the carousel, realized it was not their bag, and just left it sitting there. Luckily we were pay attention, and my Super Traveler rescued my bag from the perils of some other fate.
Thought for the day – always pay attention to your belongings when you are on the road. Oh and don’t leave home with out a Travel Man!!
