Men will pack it in.

Byline: Shari Low

A NEW survey for the Post Office finds that while a third of all women pack for their partner and children, only three out of 100 men do the same.

If we girls want to promote equality maybe it's time we loosened the reins and let blokes take charge of one of the year's most stressful jobs.

Plus points: less work, less anxiety, less baggage.

Realistic outcome: A family of four spending two weeks on the Costa Del Sol with three T-shirts, two pairs of shorts, Hawaiian-themed swimmies and two pairs of kecks.

Maybe there are times in real life where equality is a really bad idea.
