The Grumble Factor

  • How long will you wait for your luggage at the airport?
  • How long would you wait for an elevator?
It seems that the powers to be have figured out how inefficient they can be without people complaining. Read this narrative and weep. Its long but worth it.

It seems that if the carousels are moving, people will wait 20 minutes longer without complaining, even if your bag isn't on the belt yet.


  1. That was a very informative and excellent read! SVP indeed :D
    Although- does that work better for women than men?

  2. i imagine there would be some variance, but there wouldn't an application of it, if it wasn't true across sexes
