I saw this beautiful Mulberry on the wet and dirty floor of the Stockholm Underground the other day. It had been snowy and rainy so the floor was even more disgusting than usual. Don’t get me wrong, the trains are cleaned every day, but with millions of people using them and bad weather they get pretty icky.
Do you put your bag on the floor? I almost never do. On a train I have it on the seat next to me if the train is empty, and on my lap if it is full. At a restaurant it is either on a seat or hooked to one of the bag hooks that are usually under the table. If not, I use one of my own bag hooks. Same goes for toilets – always on a hook or on my lap if there is no hook. Yep, probably looks funny but I don’t care.
The only exception would be at work. If there is no spare place for my bag on a seat, then it goes on the floor. But this is usually carpet in a conference room or someone’s office so that I don’t mind.
