Big Bag Syndrome

A bag is used for packaging and/or carrying items.A bag may be closable by a zipper, snap fastener, etc., or simply by folding (e.g. in the case of a paper bag).A bag may or may not be disposable; however, even a disposable bag can often be used many times, for economic and environmental reasons.

While i was walking my way down to work, i always saw a individuals who is carrying a Bag, whether they are students, common people, fashionista's, nanny's, mothers, and even a beggar. One thing i noticed nowadays are the girls who are carrying a bag not just a bag but a BIG BAGS.

Gone are the days of dainty purses and miniscule wallets. They’re fine for special events, sure, but for everyday use, it looks like women are turning to real bags. Huge bags. The kind of bag into which you fit half your life- and then never find it again. Giant black holes slung on our shoulders sucking in every stray business card, matchbook, and penny that cross their paths.

At one time Big Bags were strictly for use by mommies, to carry Bandaids and nail clippers and tissues and lip balm and the million-and-one other things that kids may require on a daily basis.

My sister and cousins specially girls used Big Bag, i asked them what are the things inside their bags, tissue papers,(napkins)hehehehe, make up kits, wallet, I-Pod, cellularphones, book,hand lotion and the hand sanitizer etc.Sound familiar?....There’s something innately comforting in knowing that you’ll always have what you need, even if you are carrying a perpetual 20-pound load on your shoulder.

The Big Bag bug has bit women nationwide. I think it started with the infamous “hobo”, but I can’t be sure. The trend has certainly evolved.

I started to become annoyed with girls who have bag’s oversized-ness, and the continual “excuse me’s” necessary to avoid knocking an innocent bystander off his unsuspecting feet.

Not that there's anything wrong with owning a big, gorgeous tote. The trouble starts when you load it up—wallet, laptop, comfortable pair of shoes, cell phone, PDA, bag lunch, water bottle, book or magazine, maybe both, along with a makeup kit and a few work files—and lug the thing everywhere.

Soon you may start to notice a nagging ache that runs down your neck, across the top of your shoulder blade, and over to your arm. That tiny curved crescent of discomfort gets worse and worse until you do something seemingly innocuous.
