They probably weren't lying, though. Baggage handlers require a degree of strength; throwing around an old suitcase filled with heavy magazines Ina
competition with other employees builds comraderie and tests the over all strength of participants. I for one do not believe that a random baggage
handler cares enough one way or the other to maliciously throw around a random travellers bag. Accidents happen, but that's ridiculous.

metal slide with a crash barrier that leads to the circular carousel. Every time a piece of luggage slid down the slide, you would a solid thump.
