Our flight touched down at an airport in South India on a November night time in 2018. When the seat belt signal was off, the passengers hurriedly received as much as take out their carry-on baggage from the overhead bins.
As I stepped out of the plane and onto the aerobridge, the glass panels on both aspect gave a glimpse of the quietness of the night time. I arrived on the baggage declare space and located that the carousel was already transferring. Soon, the place turned crowded. All eyes have been mounted on the transferring belt, and a sudden elation went up in me on the sight of a familiar-looking bag instantly solely to be adopted by a sigh of disappointment. The cycle received repeated till my first darkish inexperienced bag arrived. I waited for the second. Initially, my eyes searched for under darkish inexperienced, however after a while, they seemed for each shade of inexperienced after which all colors till they received drained. The “last bag” signal flashed on the display screen and the belt stopped its merry-go-round recreation.
I believed a co-passenger should have taken my bag, and after realising his mistake, left it someplace. I went to the customer support desk to complain and even earlier than I completed my sentence, the lady on the desk pulled out a type and gestured along with her hand to fill it up. I handed over the shape and walked out of the airport and stood on the pavement in search of my brother’s automotive. Another passenger stood subsequent to me together with his baggage. My eyes opened broad with fury once I noticed the inexperienced bag he was holding. It seemed identical to the one I misplaced. Luckily for him, I observed the tag of one other airline on it. I nonetheless eyed him with suspicion.
Next day, I known as the airline however to no avail. As I remembered the person with the inexperienced bag, my rage returned. However, after a collection of cellphone calls and a protracted wait, the bag arrived one tremendous morning. Only after inspecting it and its contents did I forgive the so-called thief.
