So I was checking in at the Vancouver Airport today. Sending my gross old suitcases down the conveyor belt while the Not-Very-Helpful Airport Dude was standing there reminding everyone to place their suitcases "face-down" while doing nothing to help them do so. Then up steps this woman with two beautiful LV luggage pieces - one was a large keep-all and the other was a small suitcase. Well, she went to the desk for "special baggage" to get those big plastic bags to put over her LV. Can't blame her - I would have done the same thing - if I had the 'nads to actually CHECK my LV!! Anyway - the N-V-H Airport Dude then starts verbally admonishing her for bringing her "expensive" luggage to the airport!! I couldn't believe it! He was making a total spectacle of her! Here's him: "You know - you shouldn't buy luggage that expensive if you don't want it rubbing up against other suitcases. You should just leave that stuff at home. Why would you check that if you don't want it mixed in with the other luggage?" Poor lady - she totally ignored him. Which probably irritated him even more. When she was done, he called after her: "I would never have even given you those plastic bags to put over your luggage!" She walked past me and I could totally hear her swearing at him under her breath. I couldn't believe what a jerk he was to her!! Poor lady. AND HEY! IF this lady was YOU, a fellow tPFer - hats off to you for keeping your cool.
