"Will you watch this for me"

During Saturday evening coffee with new friend Dave Shen at Cafe Borrone, we discussed the awkward “will you watch this for me” question that folks in airports, coffee shops, etc make when needing to dash to the restroom. I’m often at the receiving end of these requests, must be my trusting face.

Would be an interesting study in perceptions to put several folks with different ethnicity, dress, etc in public places and see who gets asked more often to “watch my stuff” a.k.a. “you don’t look like you’d steal my laptop or luggage.”
