Lugging multiple bags has become a trend among women...is this a fashion fad or there's more to it?
On my way to the office today, I saw several ladies struggling with two bags, obviously on their way to the office – so I took out my camera and discreetly took a picture (the one above).
Yes, I know, as a guy, some ladies my say ‘na wetin consign you?’ but I am sure that many bros like me would be itching to know why they go through all the trouble.
Well, I went searching for answers on the Social Media: Yahoo, Facebook and Twitter...
“I assume they are carrying their dresser in it Kukogho. I carry a mailman's bag so I don't understand big purses either,” Terri Francisco, a middle aged woman said.
@Elemdeeo who carries two bags and 4 purses says "it is because we have a lot to carry. I have spare shoes, my documents make up and other stuff"
I am sure most girls would support @elgeotaofeeq who wrote: “those bags contain 'make up materials' that make them comfortable outside. The bags are 'home away from home'."
A guy, Shittu Fowora, provides a rather hilarious but plausible answer.
“Women on the move, they may have many options. Like Friday: working in Lagos, Saturday: a sleep-over in Ogun and Sunday: church service in Abeoukuta, only to return for work before Monday,” Shittu says.
"Some nursing mothers carry it for the purpose of keeping a child most useful things, while 'runs girls' use it to keep extra cloth,” @judge_ismail wrote on twitter.
But we all know how many of those bag-lugging women actually have children. Wink!
Another dude, James Ademuyiwa Jamesconco wrote, “Dem go just dey carry big bags like say na inside Molue their rooms dey.”
I leave you with this poem:
wardrobe is on motion
dresses, undies and lotion
the carrier is a woman
'tis a wonder to every man
