Hardly bearable - people with backpacks
What do you need a backpack for? More and more fellow humans, especially men drag themselves through the city these days with that thing strapped on their backs. Sorry but, that's just not ok!
When I think about what I actually need to have on me when I'm leaving my house to walk through the city it's my keys and wallet which both fit in my back pocket. Just like my phone. In case I have to have my notebook with me and some pens to scribble something or my laptop I just bring a briefcase or a laptop case. Purchases, groceries, shopping items belong in the shopping bags they've been purchased with but why in God's name would I carry a backpack? For my hands to be free so I can text more? Get outta here! And let's be honest, a man with a backpack tends to look a little degraded and strapped down.
As early as in my youth the so called backpacker tourists, precursors of the later to come do-gooders, have already caused severe damage to the image of an efficient company named Birkenstock (whose sandals were declared to be unwearable for a long time because of said people) and probably even shaped the image of Germans in several European countries.
The backpacker tourist back in those days has naturally evolved and probably vacays on a vegan farm now. Along his way of suffering he spread his genes and therefore we can witness his offspring in the cities, on the trams, in shopping malls, doctor's offices, in crowded pedestrian zones and during a nightly visit to the movies.
What specifically annoys me about that? Apart from the obvious optical reasons? They're not aware of how the personal action scope increases because of the voluminous load capacity. The result: Every single turn, which now of course needs more space than usual, ends up in an involuntary body contact with others – which is seldomly perceived as a friendly attempt to approach someone but as a obstrusive ignorance and a lack of polite minimum distance.
