Why You Should Bring a Mini Plunger When You Travel

Mini plungerI was on the people-mover (between terminals and baggage claim/ground transportation) at Denver International Airport recently, and I overheard a twenty-something kid tell his father an interesting thing. The last time he was on the crowded train, he said, he saw a lady pull out a mini plunger and stick it to the ceiling so she had something to hold onto. I thought this was brilliant. I’ve been on plenty of trains too crowded for me to grab a pole on, or where I haven’t wanted to touch the nasty railings, and I’m not always tall enough to stick my hand to the ceiling. A mini plunger with good suction (like this one) solves this. Just make sure the plunger is clean (obviously) and be prepared for people to take pics of you labeling you as a crazy person.

  1. Are you sure that TSA won’t confiscate it as a weapon of mass elimination?

  2. Now that is hilarious! :) Just no. As if my luggage isn’t heavy enough without a mini-plunger! Haha! Creative points though! Thanks for sharing.
