When you travel frequently you accrue lots of experiences, both good and bad (although the bad ones tend to stick out).
This morning I am very happy and wanted to share my joy because the guy at the airberlin checkin counter took my suitcase and my backpack. They were both marginally over the weight limit which made me nervous, but he passed on the suitcase and then asked if I wanted to checkin my backpack for free.
It was his first day and I think he was somewhat nervous, especially with the trainer standing above him with a critical look, telling him everything he was doing wrong.
This single act means that instead of being burdened and stressed through the airport both here and in Chicago, I should have a carefree transit. Thanks airberlin!
