packing (as a skill)

8-XII-2010 15:33

Having grown with small cars and the general attitude that everyone will try to charge a traveler double, the people have developed quite a skill in packaging. They almost have an instinct as to what can go into what, and what can be turned this way or other to fit.

Not everybody, of course, there are always those "with two left hands" ("all thumbs"), but these are ridiculed, not catered to.

When it comes to transportation by car, people go to ridiculous lengths to fit whatever possible into/onto a car, regardless of how small the car is.
