About a year ago, my wife and I were sitting in the Vancouver airportAir Canada lounge, with seats looking out over the baggage handling area. There’s a point here where the driver has to make a sharp u-turn, and we watched one take the turn so quickly that luggage flew off.
Well, it would seem that this really isn’t that unusual event. As I write this, a year later,I find myself sitting in virtually the same seat as before. And, to my astonishment, another driver does exactly the same thing! He completely ignored the flung luggage and went on his way. Many other vehicles stopped to look at the luggage, but no one did anything.
Finally someone had the forethought to go and tell Vancouver’s own Mario Andretti about it. After a while, someone eventually came and took it away – but did not take it to the unloading dock.
What are the odds there’s someone waiting in the luggage area that’s not really happy right now…
