As pictures tell more than words, let me show you a glimpse of my life from this perspective.
This is my stuff in the library while I circle. I just leave it there and go wander. Standard procedure in Finland.
This is my stuff at the till while I am shopping. You can ask the cashier to take your stuff behind the counter. Sometimes the staff even offers you this possibility. Not a rare sight in Finland.
This is my stuff in the train, while I’m in the toilet. I just asked the lady (read: complete stranger) next to me if she could watch my stuff. Basic Finland.
