This is something I’ve always wondered about. Maybe because I leave my purse laying wherever I am and I’m not to concerned about anyone seeing what’s in it nor am I to worried about anyone stealing it. But I’ve always wondered why “older” women mostly, clutch their purses to them like they contain a million dollars?
My grandma used to do this if she went out and had her purse. I also had an aunt who had this really UGLY “cat” bag and NO MATTER where she went, she took that dang bag with her. Even to the bathroom. If my mom was taking her somewhere, her bag had to be right with her the whole time. When we would get her situated in the car, we’d put her bag in the back seat and she would panic until she was holding that bag. We often joked about “what she had in that bag” and when she died, my mom called and asked me if I wanted to know what was in there and I said yes, she told me basically nothing. NOTHING!! Why did she have to have it in her lap ALL THE TIME?
Just like the picture in the post above, two of those women are “sharing” their chairs with their purses. Are you a woman like this who needs your purse with you all the time or do you think this was a thing of the past? Do you know women who do this?
I have a sister in law like this. If we are at a family gathering of any kind, wherever she goes, she’s clutching on to that purse of hers.
