I have two over weight bags, one (the Trak Kayak) oversized; I am not flying a star alliance flight, with which I am a silver status holder. I am due to owe the airline possibly $150 CA for the bags. I put my big dry bag on the scales; it weighs in at 54lbs, the flight attendant smiles and tells me not to worry about it. “Oh awesome, thank you!” I say with a smile “however this bag”, as I dump the Trak in its bag upon the scales; “Is overweight and over size for sure!”
The flight attendant shakes her head and smiles “you look like a person who places a value on quality of life rather than money, so I won’t charge you!” I look at her with surprise. “I hope I haven’t insulted you? It is a quality i admire!”
“No I am not insulted, thank you Very Much!” I exclaim in surprise.
