Alas, the tale of a soldier and his maiden rarely has a happy ending.

By now the photo has gone viral online and is splashed in print media as well. I'm sure the man boy is rueing his moment of slack, when he allowed his maid to carry his heavy haversack for him. Actually, maybe there are reasons we do not know. Perhaps his maid offered to carry the haversack for him and would not hear of a rejection, or maybe he just needed a few seconds to type out a message and took back the load soon.

Whatever it is, he is never going to have a chance to explain, because then we would all know who he is. And when a picture speaks a thousand words, what more can he say in defence? (pun fully intended)
