2:40 pm - New one...

Hi. I've decided to join after I'vee been looking over a few posts a bit. At my campus only the kids who are disabled or have a shitload of classes have to roll their stuff around. Oh yeah, I'm forgetting the old people who take classes here too. Meh...

I only take two classes each semester, which is good for me since I have a little load of books. Recently I bought a zipper binder. The 5 Star one. With all my papers in it it's teh huge. But luckily it can still fit into my backpack, but just barely though. I'm thinking of buying another backpack, except larger, like the Big Student Jansport ones. But the thing is, I don't mind the weight, but aren't there anyones with straps that you can close so as not to make it heavier than it is on your back? In the past, I've had to use a rolly backpack, mainly in high school because we had a bunch of classes back then.

But yeah, whenever I hear those things rolling down the street or across the trolley tracks they are very annoying, and so loud too. Yesterday I saw a kid going to school *elementary it seemed* and her backpack was open a bit. I took a peek and all I saw was an empty binder and a piece of paper. Geez. I dunno.....

Oh well....

current mood: okay

Yesterday, I saw a little boy with a rolly backpack in tow. Now, I will admit, it was an absolutely adorable sight ... however I am very disappointed in the mother for allowing the child to own a rolly backpack. Poor parenting. tisk tisk

I had the most odd rolly-backpack sighting yesterday. I was down in downtown Atlanta and I see this sharply-dressed business man. Then he walks a little farther and I notice that he's carrying a ratty rolly-backpack. The funny thing was that it was open and all that was in it was a folder. Couldn't he have just carried the folder with his hand? I just didn't understand.

12:12 am - A calm, cool evening ...

I was outside just now, enjoying the peace of the late night. Thinking about life, reflecting, etc ... when what should disturb the peace, but a rolly-backpack. It's bad enough that we have to deal with them annoying us during the hustle and bustle of our busy day, but at night when we try to relax?!?! Come on people!! Carry the damn bag!

Hopefully it is just a fad, as I am seeing far less of them, but ... 'knock on wood' *knocks head* I'm not holding my breath.

current mood: sleepy

I have recently had two massive rolling backpack sightings that I made a mental note of to report to everyone, but they slipped my mind until a few minutes ago.

Firstly, I want to say I claim no responsibility for my residents that use rolling backpacks. I saw of the the people that live on my floor pulling a bag behind him and thought, "Oh no, no, no! What are you doing to yourself?!" It was very much a Miss Noxeema Jackson moment. Except I wasn't in drag.

The second sighting occured today at about 3pm. I looked up from a discussion with friends while sitting in the Multipurpose room (MPR) and saw a lady stand up and start to pull a rolling backpack behind her. Now, she appeared to be an older woman, so I can cut her a little bit of slack, but what I saw next was enough to make me comment to the people I was with. SHE HAD FLASHING LIGHTS IN HER WHEELS Everyone remember the shoes that would flash when you walked on them and everyone thought was so cool (well, at least back in the day - gosh, I sound old)? These lights were similar to that, except they would flash as they rolled. My friends and I then began to ridicule her as she left. I'm sure that our (unknown) mockery of her was enough to make her want to change her ways.

So, you know how they say that people eventually start to look like their pets? Well, today I saw a woman who looked like her rolling backpack.

She was wearing a pink shirt and black pants, and her backpack was pink on top and black on the bottom.

It was really weird.

Ahh, yes. It's that time of year again. Spring quarter has started, the sun is out, the snow is gone... time to give those poor, tired shoulders a rest and break out that nice, flashy lookin' rolling backpack! You know, the one you got free for signing your kid up for Hooked On Phonics or some shit. It doesn't matter, you're going to be the talk of campus with your trendy new bag, right!

Well, yes, that person will be the talk of campus. Or this community anyway. Now that all the snow is gone, we can all get back to reporting all of the stupid people we see, that insist of rolling their backpacks along the sidewalk. That sound... that 'bumpita-bumpita-bumpita' that sends shivers into the very soul, must be stopped. I think we should make some stickers or some sort of propaganda that we can distribute on campus, to discourage the use of rolling backpacks. Maybe something like:

All users of rolling backpacks will be publicly mocked!

I dunno... I'll work on it. Maybe a simple breaking of the kneecaps would suffice. I mean, if they are insistant on rolling something, it might as well be their body.

I was getting out of an elevator at the hospital today, and this lady getting into the elevator (who pushed her way in before I even was all the way out) almost ran me over with her rolling briefcase. I've never seen a rolling briefcase and this crazy lady almost killed me with hers.

I was in an elevator today, going up two floors, which is lazy, yes, however I was the only person getting on the elevator (and there are only three floors in that building anyway) when I got on.

As the doors were shutting, someone stuck their leg in, to open the doors back up so they could get on. I didn't care until I saw what the person had with them.

A rolling backpack. And guess how many floors they were going up.

ONE. They went from the first floor to the second floor.

I don't know about anyone else, but I get a HUGE kick out of watching people with rolling backpacks trying to pull them through 12 inches of snow. :)

6:43 pm - "Carry the Damn Bag" Award

I've just decided that princesslika gets the "Carry the Damn Bag" Award for the week.

We were sitting in the PUB on campus on Tuesday morning, eating breakfast, and because it was so crowded, we were in a corner next to the stairs. Suddenly, we heard this loud BUMP BUMP BUMP BUMP right next to us, and we look over to see this girl dragging her rolling backpack down the stairs! Rrrr! We were all thinking, "Damn, how annoying," but Lisa was the only one with enough balls to say (yes, she really said this!), "Pick up the damn bag, it's NOT that heavy!!" The girl, obviously, heard her, because as she went down the next set of stairs, she picked up her bag!!!

current mood: pleased

I finally started to see more of them. Luckily there are only two that I have seen at my school, both maned by the mentally handicapped kids. Thats alot more understandable than just crazy short people running around bumping into people.

Although. Another thing that baffled me. There was a kid in my geometry class that had a pencil box. No joke. Do you remember those? You'de put them in your desk in elementary school and fill then with crayons and pencils sometimes glue. High school. We are in high school. I just kind of looked at her with a puzzled look on my face. I thought that was why we had little pouches you clip to the inside of your binder. Well that obviously wasn't enough space, so she just carts around the pencil box. Can never have too many pencils.

current mood: confused

3:39 am - MY rolling backpack

Yes, I am one of them.. I pull around on campus my pink and black rolling bookbag. In it sits my huge textbooks, my giant binder, and my wallet. This all comes to a whopping 57 lbs. Why am I one of those? Allow me to explain...

Three years ago, I would have carried all of this in a backpack on my back. Now? I can't. I have a dislocated disk. I am supposed to have surgery, but my doctor keeps pushing it off (It's an HMO, what do you expect?). My doctor told me I am not allowed to lift ANYTHING over 10 lbs. I have to take elevators, I am always late for class, etc because of this bookbag. I hate it, but it has saved my back from further damage.

You never know if the person you are complaining about has a medical reason for that roller. This is why I never complain when I get tripped. I know from experience not to.

I think it's funny that the Hooked-on-Phonics rolling backpacks are described as "rugged, stylish, and spacious." :P I think they forgot "annoying" and "obnoxious."

Hi, I'm new. I hate rolling bags. Someone on campus rolled over my foot once. Lazy bitch. I still can't tell if she did it deliberately or she was just very obtuse.

I have to be back at school exactly one month from today, and with that, comes going back to The Land of the Rolling Backpacks.

Damn them all.
