Don't mind me.

So. Here is my funny black purse story.
Well. You can decide if it is funny.

I needed my phone to take a picture of a special picture at the wake.  Janet had my phone/camera in her purse.  Her black purse.  Both Cindy and Janet have black purses.  Janet said her purse was on the couch, over there.

So I made my way to the couch and sat down to root thru her purse.  There were two of them sitting there so I picked up the first one and dug around for a bit.  I didn't see my wallet and keys so I set it down and grabbed the next one.  I picked this one up and set it on my lap and procedded to dig thru it.
Nope.  It was not in here either.

That's weird.

It was then that I spotted two purses on a chair about 15 feet from me.

I gently set the black purse down that I was holding and went over to the chair...
 I peeked inside and found my phone.

Yep.

I was digging thru the wrong purses.

Can you imagine!?!?

Love
Me

  1. You are so funny!!! But I am laughing nervously, because my mother had this thing about anyone going through her purse. It was absolutely off-limits. Who knows why. It was one rule I never broke (-:

    Was your Uncle Greek Orthodox?

      Di,

      My mother was the SAME way about her purse. She always had a pack of Wrigley's Double Mint in there (Grandma had Spearmint, which was better!) and I often asked if I could go get it but she always insisted I carry her purse to her and she would get the gum for me. I'm not at all sensitive about my purse. It's always a mess but I don't mind my children or friends looking for something they need in there!

    2. I am the same about my pocketbook!

      My mom kept peppermints (Starlight? Red and white swirly) in her bag, and probably 7-10 lipsticks, right til the end of her handbag carrying days. Then my dad, bless him, would keep a lipstick in his shirt pocket for her, and apply it when needed. So sweet.

      Even now, at the nursing home, they are sure to put on Mom's lipstick ... it makes her a little more "her" xxx

    Very funny! I started to ask why so many women were carrying black purses in the summer time, but then remembered it was a funeral visitation! Color me blonde. Haha.

    Where was your "Ethel?" She should have been standing guard while you rummaged through the black purses. If only I lived closer, I would be your partner in comic crime....laughing all the time. My mom was a stickler about her purse, too. Wonder if it is a generational thing. I try to get folks to just look in my purse and get what they need and they always bring it to me. That may say something about the condition of the inside of my purse. ;-)
    Thanks for the lol moment today! love and prayers, jep

    3. Susan, it doesn't happen on my phone. But on my big computer... Yes. I think Karen uses a big computer.

  10. I'm with Karen. Here is how I fixed it: I went to the video and turned the volume down to zero. Voila! No sound, so it doesn't bug me.

    Donna,

    I am sure that no one saw you digging through their purse because
    I am positive they would have confronted you.

  14. So, I'm quite late to this party as you posted this last week...but we were at a Halloween party once and someone took home my purse thinking it was theirs!! We had the same bag and the husband reached over and picked it up thinking it was his wife's. Well, when we couldn't find my purse anywhere -- with our car keys in it -- my husband went home to get our second set of keys. He was dialing my phone over and over (that was in my purse) until someone finally answered and they had a "who is this?""well, who is this??" conversation and figured it all out. So after an hour or so, my purse was located and everyone laughed...later that night, I get a text that the mother in law had put her phone in my purse thinking it was her daughter's bag and now I had her phone....I mean!! Who's on first? :)
