The guy insisted we divide the contents with another suitcase we had to PURCHASE at one of those airport shops for 300% mark-up, you know the kind I mean - it would be $19.99 at any super K-Mart, but in the airport shop it's $89.99.

Here at KCI (Kansas City) I saw the same thing happen to some guy. His bags were overweight so they were going to charge him extra for the weight. They wound up giving him a pretty sturdy cardboard box to transfer some things into to avoid the charge. The box was a good thing but what difference does it make if the weight is in one container or two?
