Don't get me wrong, if lucky enough to end up with a job, I'll happily roll with the social norms.

I've just never understood why some folks get so amped up about backpacks. They're functional.

And pulling little rolling bags is also functional, but....

I'm long past looking like a kid going to summer camp no matter how I pack my luggage.

Sneakers are functional too, but don't look professional.

They do at the gym.

I'll bow out, I really was just curious. I suspect as time goes on, you're going to find yourself nauseated with ever increasing frequency.
