Do you wear a backpack every day, even though it is empty?

Asked by ragingloli (43198points) January 19th, 2018

Just in case you need it.
Or maybe you feel exposed or naked without it.

No. I dislike backpacks.

I have a messenger bag I use to lug around my laptop when I’m teaching.

Is this a metaphor?

I usually take my backpack with me when I go out. I might want to buy something. It isn’t completely empty, I carry a pen and a waterproof, elastoplasts, paper hankies and a couple of reusable plastic bags in it at all times. I also feel uncomfortable as if I’ve forgotten something if I leave it behind.

Not every day; only for travel.

Backpack isn’t fashionable. I prefer handbag.

I have carried a backpack to school and work most days since 1970.

There was a period of about 18 months where I had a large brief case i used because I traveled a lot on business and need to protect a laptop. Once I was able to get a backpack with alaptop sleeve, I stopped using the briefcase.

I usually do, actually. It’s never empty, but it often has crap in it I don’t need. In fact, just yesterday I was walking out of the hospital without it (I had left it at home) and a respiratory therapist said, “Where is your backpack?”

Usually, I carry stuff like my coat, a stethoscope, my computer, my ipad, etc.

Yes. I have either a backpack, book bag or something besides my purse. I may take a change of shoes, a book, dry snacks, etc… I like to be prepared haha! (I’ve heard backpacks are kinda nerdy after a certain age, but some are quite nice and fashionable.)

No. I don’t even carry a purse any more. But this is relevant.
