Carrying On About Carrying On
updated: Jun 04, 2011, 10:00 AM
My friend and I went to Chicago for the weekend a couple of weeks ago. She checked her bag, but I prefer carry-on. I had a small suitcase, a makeup bag, a garment bag, and my purse. A man during boarding got mad at me for carrying so much on the plane, and my friend took his side. She says that it is not fair, because people like me who "cheat" make it impossible for passengers to use the overhead compartments for their "real" carry-on luggage. I think it's the airlines' fault for charging extra for checking luggage. Whose fault do you think it is?

I think this is a made-up question. How did you get your makeup bag through security??
