    It happens, but like in a crowded area and if i'm not moving soon, i would put my bag on the ground between my legs. And.. oh,
    I always refrain from walking into a porcelain store.

    yes, but it worked out great for me.

    my oversized camera backpack knocked into a xmm and she flew into my arms.

    at the same time, the backpack knocked into a vending machine and a green tea can flew out into her hands.

    I always try to avoid people, hate it when people keep having their backpacks on their backs in crowded MRT and buses!!!! Can tell who the inconsiderates are..........

    If I carry backpack and take bus/mrt, I will sling it to one side to avoid knocking into people.
    However, I observed some people damn "bua zi tong" or "bo chap" and block the whole path.
    Sometimes, I will just purposely bump the guy if he blocks my path.

    No, but I almost picked up a passenger on my old (non-photo) backpack once.
    Was waiting for my food at a hawker centre when a friendly cat came by, a young tom. Made friends with him. After a while, he hopped up onto my backpack, which was on the seat next to me. I left him there and he got cosy while I ate.
    When I was done, I lifted my bag slowly, expecting him to get the message and jump off, but he guess he was too comfortable, cause he clung on! For a few seconds, I thought I would be going home with a cat strapped to my back. Would have been an interesting photo!

    No, usually I stop and stare at people, they will give way to me.

    and if people didn't notice me, I just speak with a very slow and lowest bass tone... "ex...cuse.... me"
