When you are only carrying a small garment bag and attache case, and you encounter a mother struggling into the airport parking deck elevator with a toddler in hand, giant carseat over one shoulder, suitcase rolling behind and attache case over the other shoulder, the correct thing to do is NOT to say: “Boy, you sure don’t believe in traveling light.” and then get off the elevator, striding toward the shuttle bus stop with nary a backward glance. The correct thing to do is say “Would you like a little help with your load?” and then help her carry something to the bus stop. It wouldn’t have cost you more than a few seconds, but it would have saved the mother’s shoulder two days of achiness.
So glad you are not my husband.
Dear Nice Guy,
Thanks so much for helping me get the carseat on and off the shuttle bus. You made my day.
