Where have all the real suitcases gone?

Everythings on wheels now.

Thankful for small mercies, me. :rolleyes:

Me and Mr T reluctantly caved in to the trolley case vibe after 20 years o lugging vast hard-body Samsonites aroon the place. The ones that had wheels but only a crappy pop-up handle so's when attempting to wheel em, they were pritty unstable and would fall over sideyways all the time. Bliddy exhausting.

Dead servicable still though, despite their considerable airmiles. I wonder if you can recycle em?

D'ye know, there was me talkin aboot this very thing this very (vexatious) week.

I have been around various proper spinsterish & cobwebby lady professor sorts at various venues all over the place, and we find ourselves wondering how the HECK such folk managed before the simple but quite wizard wheeze of simply putting wee wheels on yer case.

Prior to the wheels, how was one to get from train station to hotel when you know it is no more than a 5 minute walk? Ye couldnae humf it. You'd have had to get a taxi. For a 5 minute walk...

What a bunch of humfing one would once upon a time have had to do. Now ye just pull your wee trolly about; it's not a hassle. Why did it take so long to come up with this? How did the independent ladies ever manage?

Loadsa porters now outta work?

Here's a question though; is there a name for the noise a trolley case makes going down an urban pavement?

We all hear it a trillion times a week, it's become part of the sonic landscape.

Suggestions anyone?

Them Samsonites wur murder. Even when emtpy they accoontit fur hauf o' yer luggij weight allowince.

The name fur theez sootcases cums fae the name o' wanny the tribes o' Israel in the bible. It's well known that the Samsonites wur a right bunch o' hardcases.
