You Can Watch What Happens To Your Airport Luggage Here [VIDEO]
Ever wonder? I do. These things keep me up at night. When you hand over your Samsonite to the nice lady behind the counter at Albany Airport, where does it go?
Here is a fascinating piece of diversion, this little video here. I've always wondered, haven't you? One time, before I got into this crazy little thing called radio, I was a performer for conferences and used to travel all over the country. I was sent to Orlando, but insisted on bringing my own keyboard for the gig. I handed it over in it's metal case (very sheepishly), they weighed it and put it on the belt. I made sure the correct name tag was on it - Richie Phillips, blank blank street, Albany, NY.
Upon my return, I went to the luggage carousel and --no keyboard. It didn't come back for 4 days. Why? Cuz they sent it back to Albany----Albany, GEORGIA! Yes, there is such a place, believe it or not. It did eventually make it back to me, even though the metal case was cracked in the middle. No lie.
Here is a video compliments of Digg.com that traces the trip that each piece takes from start to finish.
Enjoy it? Now you can thank me for wasting just a little more of your precious time….
