Official figures today confirmed that the official population of wheeled luggage items in the UK continues to grow at a rapid rate.
Many owners say that wheeled luggage has revolutionised their lives. ‘It gives me a much needed excuse to go down the pub’ beamed new owner Steve Browning. ‘I just tell the missus I’m taking the bag for a walk and pop in for a sly pint or two’.
Not all establishments are so luggage friendly however. ‘Some of these gastro pubs have become quite baggist and have banned wheeled luggage’ complained Steve. ‘They’re trip hazards apparently.’
Inevitably, as the desire grows to be seen with the very latest wheeled holdall there are casualties. Previously much loved cases find themselves casually discarded by their owners. Fortunately, a refuge centre has been founded where abandoned luggage can receive much needed care and eventually be made available to good homes.
