Lazy Business People

While walking from the bus stop to our work buildings the other day, my roommate Karl and I came to a consensus on a modern day annoyance - people who walk to work with roller bags. Now I'm not talking about business people walking around downtown with big ol' suitcase roller bags, usually on their way to or from hotels or on the way to the airport. I'm talking about what is basically a glorified mini laptop bag with a long ass handle thrust out of it and a pair of little wheels on it.

Are people that lazy that they need to roll, at most, 10 pounds? I have a backpack for carrying my laptop and work gear to and from work. It works fine. Most people have briefcases. They work fine too. Others even have messenger bags, which are great as well. But, for the love of all that is holy in this world, why would you need to take a briefcase and drag it behind you? It's probably more work to extend the legs and drag the bag behind you than it would be to sling a briefcase strap over a shoulder or put on a backpack.

So, in conclusion, if you have a mini roller bag that you haul around downtown Minneapolis, don't be surprised if I walk up to you, kick your bag, and call you wuss-face.
