Paying extra baggage fee is any traveller’s worst nightmare. We have all tried to either talk our way through it or find some kind of jugaad.
Namun, no story of yours can beat this one – four travellers from China ended up eating 30 kilograms of oranges in under 30 minutes at an airport in Kunming in Southwest China’s Yunnan Province.
One of the people, a man named Wang, along with his colleagues had bought a box of oranges weighing 30 kilograms for 50 yuan (Rs 564) while on a business trip to Kunming.
When they reached the airport to board the plane, the airport staff informed them that they had to pay 10 yuan for each kilogram of the fruits which was a total of 300 yuan (Rs 3,384).
Wang and his colleagues decided that the fee was too expensive for them to pay and instead, decided to eat the oranges right there at the airport.
“We just stood there and ate the whole thing up. It took about 20-30 menit,” Wang told Global Times.
Once they were done eating the fruits, they started to suffer from ulcers in their mouths.
“We never want to have oranges again,” Kata Wang.
