Cab driver: ma’am are you the one with luggage bag?
Me : yea..
This happened outside my office building it’s been raining here for last 3 4 days, along with howling yowling growling winds.
It’s not raining anymore but cold winds are making sure my bladder is empty all the time.
For UAE it’s really cold here these days because we practically live in a furnace.
I went out of building and I knew walk to metro station is not going to be easy, so I counted my pennies called a cab.
Now, I was standing with a group of people waiting for cabs or their folks to pick them. My cab driver parked in a distance and I called him to tell he is standing outside the wrong building and then I heard these dreadful words.
I carry this thing..
Now you tell me is it odd?
Before this, I was carrying 2 bags, my laptop bag and my handbag and it would get too heavy. And I have so much stuff! And I have to walk a lot!!
Few days back I was in the elevator and our receptionist was constantly giggling and then she finally asked, what do you have in this bag?
I said, don’t ask I have got a lot of stuff in it if i get lost i can easily survive on my own for a few days.
I get this a lot.
Today I got embarrassed for 2 seconds when that cab driver called my roller bag (that’s the name I saw on a website) a luggage bag.
Luggage bag?? Seriously??
Today I shaved my man arms in office restroom because I didn’t have time and energy at home. What if I didn’t have my razor.
I have my coffee jar, because coffee machine is empty all the time so we have to tend to our own coffee needs.
2 types of hair brushes. Because..bangs..
A pouch of make up and stationary.
3 different size notebooks.
Sharpener. It’s a bit bigger.
I dont know what else..
Oh yea usb port.
Now where do I keep all of this stuff.
And I constantly feel I’m forgetting something.
In my old office, colleagues would call me grocery store.
But is there anything I can take out? I always keep thinking about stuff I need to put in my bag.. oh disinfectant wipes!!
So, I’m probably known as “the girl with the luggage bag”.
