This situation is even more accentuated when there’s a crowded baggage claim. Like the picture below.
Why does everyone think that they deserve a front row seat to the baggage claim?
“Oh, let me stand right HERE so that when people see their bag, they have to squeeze around me to get it and then I’ll give them a dirty look while I talk on my phone and stand in your way like I’m a Philadelphia Flyer screening Marc Andre Fleury!
If everyone would just step back 3-4 feet aaaaannnnnd WAIT for their bag to come along we’d all be able to see our bag, walk up, grab it and go on along. (Of course if this is USAirways in the Pittsburgh Airport, this is about 2.45121 hours after your plane lands.)
Here’s my assumption: These people are the same people that, as soon as the seatbelt comes off at landing, they stand… despite that fact that they are in row 48 and have to wait for the front of the airplane to get off! So I’m forced to stare are your belly button, belly or arse while you huff and puff about standing still.
Ober suggestion here: STEP AWAY FROM THE BAGGAGE CLAIM BELT SO THAT I CAN SEE MY BAGS, YA JAGOFF!!!
