My Luggage Quit Me in the Airport: These Bags Ain’t Loyal
I’ve been on about 10 trips this fall (since September 1) and I usually carry my trusty red 20-inch California Pak carry-on. These last 2 weeks have been especially nomad-y and I’ve gone to NYC twice and then ended up in San Antonio. I’m TAHD and I guess my luggage is too because it quit me right in the middle of the airport.
I was switching terminals and going to my connecting flight when I pulled on my handle and looked down to see one of the screws was gone. I pulled up one good time and the handle just came un-done on one side. So damb petty, yo. Here I am, standing in front of Popeye’s, looking like WTF? I musta looked especially pitiful because this woman walked passed me and said “Aawwwwww.” I KNOW, LADY! I KNOW!
Disloyal ass luggage, man. Did it have to act up like that right there? NO damb behavior to be had. This is my 2nd CalPak luggage to break this year too. In February while I was in LA, my first one just cracked when I was going down some stairs. Cracked like Humpty Dumpty. Disrespectful.
I posted on it on the Awesomely Luvvie Facebook page and y’all know the only people who lack as much chill as this bag are my readers.
“Complete disrespect lol Don’t that bag know it can be replaced? You can have another one in a minute? To the left, to the left!” – DH
“Your luggage just straight kicked rocks. Didn’t even throw up deuces.” – KM
“Your luggage said welp I’m unable to can, leave me here to die.” – MM
“Well, your luggage does belong to the Queen Giver of No Dambs….lol” – LDG
“Your luggage was singing “I get wearyyyyy, and sick of tryinggg!!!” LOL’ – QDB
“Your bag said “I Can’t!” – JC
‘Luggage acted like Tamar and said “this is my last scene and season!”‘ – DR
“Aww that luggage said f-it! Hold me or go on without me!” – DW
“A moment of silence for luggage. It had a good life carrying beautiful shoes and traveling the world.” – SRM
“Luggage started singing Take me to the King…..truth is I’m tired. Right at the airport tho. Now that’s just showing out.” – DR
“Luvvie don’t just stand there taking pics. Grieve properly! Put on your bathrobe. Put on your Ugg boots. Grab some fried chicken. And just sit down in the middle of the airport. Then send a TSA agent to find you some chips. Smellie Mellie done taught you how to grieve. Do it right.
Will there be a fune? Is your mom gonna make rice for the repast?” – JCA
LMAO! Yall ain’t shit. Some people felt my pain cuz they had been there too.
“My suitcase’s wheel decided to break after the cruise so my daughter is pushing it on 3 legs lol!!!” – JW
“LOL I had a disloyal wheel on my suitcase once. I was too broke to replace it, so it had to last three more trips.” – TW
“Still not as bad as a wheel flying off in a crowded terminal while you’re rushing to make a connection, shaming you the entire way, as the bag makes a sound akin to a prolonged fart in protest as you try to navigate your way through a sea of people.” – DG
“The zipper on my luggage broke as I was boarding a flight. The Delta ground crew was like “don’t worry, we got you.” Got it back and it was duct taped like a crazy person at a fun house. At O’hare, the cab driver snatched it from me and threw it in the trunk with the quickness. Once inside the cab he said, “Sorry if I was a little rough with your bag, but I didn’t want you to be embarrassed anymore by standing with it.” – LE
Ennehweighs, I’m done with CalPak because this wheelie is only like 8 months old and it was the replacement to the broken one from February. WOMP. I’m on the hunt for a new carry-on. Thankfully, I’m grounded for the next 2 weeks so I have time to research and pick some new gear. This is my 2nd broken CalPak luggage this year so dassit for them.
I need luggage recommendations, yall. What brand do I get? Do they have red bags? I only carry red suitcases because that’s my signature color and they’re easy to recognize. And I prefer hardsides. I only need a 20-22 inch carry-on cuz that’s my go-to since I don’t check in luggage unless I’m going international or unless I’m gone for 1+ week (plus I have a LOT of other luggage that’s big).
Lemme know, my peoples!
P.S. I am just getting home and I am just about to watch last week’s Scandal episode. Recap soon come!
