    This story is not true. I've heard so many people tell it like it's their own story, it's always 'their friend'. There's a few variations of it as well.

    Sorry troops.
    Maybe this person maintains a group of friends both vocal and numerous?

    I have a grip thank you very much madam

    True, most would - but unless someone's really struggling I think it a bit interfering

    That'd be even worse, offending a guy's sense of masculinity!

    Good for you
    ok well i'd rather someone else carried my bag than me, why would i be rude enough to throw a kind offer from a stranger back in their face? it is just wrong. what a society we live in.

    Maybe it happened to one person with many, many friends

    You've lost me.. Dog chow?
    Traditionally, dogs were used in chow mein. It was a twist on the horse meat scandal. Probably a bit subtle and wine-induced.

    I have heard this story before from someone else. It would be funny & sad if it was true, but apparently it's not!

    Story's been circulating since 2005 at least. One version has a cat in the case.

    Isn't there a variation of it to do with customs searches at the airport? Like all urban legends, it comes in multiple flavours.

    That was also a joke based on 'chow', although they did/do (?) eat dogs in China - not specifically in chow mein though.

    Apologies, I'm feeling slightly odd tonight.

    I don't know - it's pretty good having your bags carried for you, even if it is spoilt, it's nice spoilt. Although I would prefer it be someone I knew and trusted.

    Yeah, it's just one of those things that are nice if they happen. I mean, I wouldn't mind having someone carry my stuff around for me all day, if they were willing. They would need to be quite strong as well, the books get quite heavy.

    I have to admit, if someone offers to help me when I'm dragging my suitcase across the London underground, I do occasionally think: "why, does it look like I can't manage?"
    Probably does Rasca
