This probably won’t interest the ladies, but for the gentlemen out there, there’s a suggestion I have for you when using the bathroom at airports.
Presumably if you’re traveling and in the airport, you’re going to have some sort of luggage with you, and a majority of the time, I’m betting it’s a roll-aboard. If you’ve got to go “#1,” whether in the public terminal restrooms or in the airline clubs, you’ll inevitably roll your suitcase inside, walk up to a urinal and do your business. That’s where the problem starts.
You’ll end up keeping your luggage right beside you or behind you, but that’s a perfect time for a thief to snatch your bags and run, since, for a brief moment, your chances of running after them are hindered by you finishing your bodily habits. The thief knows that, and that’s exactly why they’ve taken advantage of you.
Here’s my suggestion, and something I always follow when in airports: I always use one of the private stalls. I can roll my luggage in, close the door, know if won’t be easily taken away, and carry on.
It’s a simple “trick” I’ve always had a habit of doing, and an easy way to avoid a nasty interaction with a crook.
For the ladies reading this, you’re already covered. 😉
