A GROWN man has revealed that he is still too cool to put both of his bag straps over both shoulders when out in public.
Tom Booker and friend, Nathan Muir spent the weekend walking up the Malvern Hills in Gloucester and whilst Booker put his bag over both shoulders to distribute the weight evenly, Muir insisted on the cooler one shoulder.
Booker said: “He said he didn’t want to look like a nerd. We’ll see who the nerd is when we’re both in our 50s and my shoulders aren’t all fucked up.
“And who was he trying to impress on the side of a hill in the middle of nowhere?”
But elderly hill walker, Mary Fisher, 77, posted on Facebook later that evening: “Saw the coolest guy ever walking round Malvern earlier.
“His mate looked like a bit of a nerd with his bag over both shoulders, but the other guy was just nailing it.”
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute of Studies added: “If you are under six foot, bald and wearing your bag over both shoulders, people are 90 percent less likely to consider you for a promotion or have sex with you.”
