I had just checked into Melbourne airport, running late to catch a flight home to Perth. I was walking rapidly towards the Gate (Gate 23 from memory - the one furtherest away from the entrance) when a surreal voice came over the loudspeaker and requested that I return to the front luggage counter.
I ran (laptop and bag in hand) back to the other end of the building to the front counter where there was a queue of 3 men waiting for something. I bypassed the queue and explained that my name had been called.
The customer service person promptly informed me that my luggage was vibrating and they had to ask me to unlock it and stop whatever was vibrating. By then the three men waiting were keenly watching and I was confused... I couldnt remember packing anything capable of vibrating.
I unlocked my suitcase and found the culprit - my epilator (a hair removal device for those of you who dont know). I pulled it out, switched it off and repacked it (with a rather red face)...
