Sorta surprised this didn't actually tip off a TSA agent that he may be doing this to hide something.


He should have checked himself before he wrecked himself.

Do the jeans still count if they're old and sitting at the bottom of the closet, waiting for me to get off my lazy ass, bag them up and donate them to charity? I've got a sort of denim compost pile going on.

// As for shirts, you can never have too many shirts, old shirts become paintball / hiking / work shirts, then they become rags.

// I think I have 20 black t-shirts alone. Black t-shirts are a staple of my wardrobe and when I found a decent brand, I bought the FARK out of them. I am all about stockpiling clothing and shirts last a lot longer when you're rotating through 20 shirts (vs 2-3 shirts).

// if you're making statements about how many shirts and jeans a man should have in his closet, you need to get out of the closet.

Not surprised to find out he's Chinese.

CSB: I was at LAX checking in to a Virgin Atlantic flight and there was a Chinese guy and girl trying to carry on this enormous 4 foot tall Mickey Mouse they must have gotten from Disney and the check-in agent wasn't having it. They were getting more and more indignant because they were being forced to check it. What blew my mind is that if this was a round-the-world trip they were on did they really expect to not have problems carrying a 4 foot tall Mickey with them everywhere they went?

InternetSecurityGuard: I've been flying Delta a lot lately on the regional CRJ planes. The bins on these aircraft are really small. If you show up at the gate with a bag that won't fit in the overhead, they will "valet" check the bag with a pink tag. You leave it the Jetway just before boarding and they have it at the gate, sometimes inside the Jetway, at your destination.

Best I can tell, they do not charge for this.


As a matter of general rule, they don't. I used to fly ~ every week on those and smaller and I never had a charge. I fly now about 10-12 times a year and have managed to set things up so that I can do a week long conference out of a carry-on rollerboard and a briefcase. That even counts having a sport coat or two, exercise clothes, computer and accessories (along with charging cables), and so forth. It does make for some interesting casual gear for my footwear, though...

Am I the only one who thinks it's not possible to wear 60 shirts at the same time? After, let's say 10, you are now too big to fit a normal sized shirt over yourself. 50 more? No way.

hdhale: True story: I was told that my bag was several pounds overweight (using a scale controlled by the airline with no certification from the local authorities which means it could weigh a feather as being 20 pounds) even though at home it came in a couple of pounds under. Snotty clerk behind the counter stood there expecting to see my plastic and to charge me $50.

fark you, ain't happening. I proceeded to step aside and put on a sweater and suit jacket, put some of my toiletries in my pockets, and shove/wedge several more items including a pair of jeans into my carry on computer bag (I recommend Dell computers because they can take near ocean depth pressure, as a result). Checked bag was still a pound over weight...allegedly. $50 please. fark you, ain't happening. Out came sweat pants and a couple more items which a draped over my computer bag. Here's the bag, have a *nice* day.

I looked like a gypsy part way through the terminal. Stopped in a shop and found an athletic bag on clearance. Shoved several items in it and got on my plane just in time.

I will never fly the airline (had 'American' in the name...) again. I still have the athletic bag (which I also used on the return flight) though.


a) Your home scale could well be off by a few pounds. Home scales are not renowned for their precision.
b) Assuming the limit was 50 lbs, you fly with too much shiat. Just like my wife.

/thankfully I have finally trained her to start making an effort to cut down on the shiat we travel with

ElBarto79: I had an idea for a carry-on vest; a lightweight mesh vest, or trench coat if you really wanna get crazy, covered with giant pockets which you can fill with stuff to avoid baggage fees. Because it's a vest it would be easy to take off when you're going through the security check. Once you get to your seat you could just take it off and stuff it somewhere.


Someone actually did it.

Perhaps, but I've showed up with a carry-on bag packed full of electronics and they never batted an eye. Also I wouldn't pack it full of electronics, I'd pack it full of stuff I would normally have in a checked bag; clothes, books, toiletries etc.

That's not really what I'm thinking. Forget about something that looks good, and costs a fortune, I'm thinking of a vest you would only wear when you're going through security, the rest of the time you'd probably have it draped over your carry-on bag.

This is the closest I could find:

digital.hammacher.com

A vest like that, but with much larger pockets, back and front, all mesh, and dirt cheap. I want to buy it at wal mart for 20 bucks, fold up 2 pairs of pants, shoes and a bunch of other junk and stroll through security with it. Basically it would be like those cheap cloth shopping bags you can buy except in the shape of a vest.

I hope more and more people start doing this... maybe the airlines will finally start charging a base price for the seat plus a per-weight charge for flights.

i take up 1 seat, 1 carry-on "slot" and me+baggage = 180 pounds.
your 3 year old takes up 1 seat, 1 carry-on "slot" and kid plus baggage = 50 pounds.
your enormously fat wife takes up 2 seats, 1 carry-on "slot" and has 2 checked bags... hambeast + baggage = 570 pounds.

this encourages people to travel light (saving fuel)
