Maybe you should think twice before you choose your Instagram or twitter handle. This one really made me laugh. @thisbunnybites. Yes there is someone out there with this handle. It actually belongs to a lady who went ballistic when she thought that she had been robbed by American Airlines. When she opened up her bag only to find it filled with airline paraphernalia …. as per the photo she posted online…
In fact she had taken the wrong suitcase and her suitcase was waiting at the airport. But this was after she had vented online –
In fairness she posted an apology afterwards and said that maybe it was the jet lag. You have to sympathise with that and it is rather unusual that someone from the airline had used a bag so similar to her own to store runway equipment clothing.
The funny thing to me is her twitter handle – yes this bunny bites – that’s for sure.
But this lady had a real problem – people taking the wrong bag off the carousel. How many times don’t you see people halfway pulling a case off the carousel only to dump it back on because they realise it is not their suitcase. That’s why you see such a proliferation of ribbons and scarves tied to luggage to make it stand out. Some people are even going for a very personalised look –
Others are getting techy and using tracking devices. For me I would think that I would prefer to stop the problem before it started and try to at least make my luggage look unique with luggage straps and tags.
So this way your luggage will stand out and you won’t need to post frustrated tweets from this bunny bites or similar.
