Whenever I see a status about someone going on holiday, that comment is is generally guranteed to be said by someone.

It's not original and it's not funny. Aibu?

Just say

No, sorry the airline have strict weight restrictions, and I understand the luggage hold air pressure would make you ill.

That should do it

My nephew did try to pack himself into our suitcase when we left after a long visit at his home. He is a sweet lad.

Think you are being a bit OTT . Its a phrase often repeated like many others ....

LemonPeculiarJones Fri 24-May-13 09:55:00

OP, do you have a fear of being packed in a suitcase?

It's very unlikely to happen. Please don't worry.

Excess baggage aside, many eople only take hand luggage to save on check in fees these days, for short haul anyway.

A suitcase large enough to accommodate even a small person wouldn't fit in an overhead locker.

This phrase is deeply out of kilter with modern air travel.

YANBU.

although I'd rather travel by Samsonite than Ryanair

Actually your thread title made LOL.

It's one of the strangest I've seen.

OP I don't think YABU. It's lame. I think facebook is making me hate irrationally...People who I think are normal in real life just come across as socially inept thickos.

Pet dogs actually get into the suitcase and look all forlorn as they know their owners are going away without them. sad .

I've never had that said to me hmm

What a grumpy person you are/mood you are in.

It's just a lovely thing to say; making conversation/contact.

digerd last time we went away my dog got into the case with his tennis ball and looked as if he was saying 'lets go then' grin
