Boarded my flight from ATL to NYC and this woman (clearly a consultant) bats her eyelashes and asks a guy to put her overly stuffed roller bag in the overhead bin. If you can't lift it...check it!

I like lifting things for pretty ladies.

I hate when another woman acts helpless.

I have back problems and have to ask strangers to help me with my bag, and I actually hateeee it because it makes me look like this. Yes, could check it, but with traveling every week and waking up so early, the extra time checking adds up - especially when there's always a nice stranger. Again though, I have serious back issues, and I cringe every time I ask (I generally preface).

You don't know why she's asking for help so don't judge. I had surgery several months ago and could not work out so lost a lot of upper body strength. I hate asking people for help but on one of my first flights after my leave, I tried to hoist my bag up unsuccessfully, I managed to stop my bag from falling - with my face and sported a giant bump on my head to the client site. So no more pride, I can't lift but I also can't afford to lose my luggage so I'll ask for help if it not offered.

I am short and sometimes find it difficult to put it up or bring it down without knocking off people on the way. So stop judging when someone needs help coz I ain't spending on checking a small bag every time 😑

Thanks P1. Hope you feel better as well. Almost green lit for upper body exercises. Which is great bc winter clothes are heavier.
