Overweight luggageAt the Delhi airport when I was returning to Japan, the man behind the counter told me, “Unfortunately, your luggage is sixteen pounds overweight,” and he gave me a very amused smile.
I said, “Yes, you are smiling and I am crying.”
Then he checked in my luggage and said, “You don’t have to pay extra. I don’t want you to cry.”
