Fun Monday Purses and Wallets

The Church Lady is this week's hostess for Fun Monday, and she wanted to see our purses and wallets! Well, I'm not a "big purse" kinda girl...so this is what I schlep around:It's not convenient when I need to free up my hands...but I really don't like purses. Everything I need can be stuffed in here. In fact, the only reason I would even consider getting a purse is because I'm now the owner of a small dog. I could stand a classy dog purse. Right? And a diamond-studded collar for the little thing? Yeah...

BTW, who even needs all these credit cards? I see four already that I never use, but I'm afraid to get rid of, because I don't know if that's good or bad for my credit score.Let's not forget the snazzy little compartment that holds my driver's license. You know what makes me mad about this? I was told to SIGN MY NAME when I got my license. When I did, I was told it was no good. When I asked why not, the revenue department employee told me it wasn't "legible." I tried to explain that it was my SIGNATURE, and that when I sign my name, it is quite distinctive. She told me to re-write my name anyway. I tried another time, but it still wasn't good enough. Being picky, I asked, "So, you really don't want me to SIGN my name, right? You just want me to write out my name in cursive handwriting so that it can be read." Of course, I got an affirmative response. What's the point of signing your name, if it's not your signature? I just don't get it.
I also would not be totally honest, if I did not include the satchel o' death:It is named such because I am afraid that some things may go IN there...never to be seen alive again. This is really just the bag I shove my wallet, keys, digital camera and sunglasses into when I'm going to work. I'll put snacks, water, Valium, all number of other items in the bag that I think might help me thru the day. But I just take it to work...nowhere else. Kinda like a kid's backpack for school, but with extra Valium.

Okay - I finally posted something on a Fun Monday! Now go visit all the other participants!

I can't believe they said your signature was unusable! That's ridiculous. No one can read my husband's signature, but I know just what it looks like!

And I love your name for your satchel o'death. Too funny!

Sayre said...

I have a satchel of death that I use for work. I'm rather relieved that we didn't have to empty THAT out.

I do like a purse with a shoulder strap. I don't like having my hands full.

The Church Lady said...

Your wallet purse is very convenient! I always liked those, but I would need a place to stash my lip gloss, cell phone, etc. Thanks for sharing!!

Stephanie, Mama Dramatist said...

I work with physicians, and my husband is a scientist. No on on EARTH has more illegible handwriting than those folks whose handwriting I must read every day. Geesh!! Some folks need to get a reality check.

Speaking of reality, LOVE the "satchel of death"! Now that's REAL, man!

Hootin' Anni said...

You and me both....no purses. AND!!! I have to add, your new family member is soooooooooo darned cute!!!!!

Yep, she looks quite like a Doxie. Or maybe some Dobie blood.

Cute, cute, cute!!! Have y'all named her yet?

Sandy said...

I love the 'satchel of death'. That's just perfect.

Pamela said...

satchel of death. I could easily switch to one of those instead of my pursecution.

bermudabluez said...

Whoa! You posted!!! I have to take my "satchel of death" everywhere!! I have so much crap in that thing....I'd be embarrassed to include a picture of it!! And I can't believe they didn't like your signature!! Do they ask physician's to re-sign their names?????

Desert Songbird said...

I think I'm getting over my purse/bag addiction. My shoe addiction even seems to be waning. I don't know what's wrong with me. *sigh*

Kila said...

Whoa, Fun Monday!

I'd love to see your real signature.

karisma said...

Congratulations on "finally posting something", I was thinking the same about myself. LOL. I could not even find my little Fun Monday logo its been that long.

LOL at your end description there! (So what are you saying, back packs for kids in the US come with Valium? Geez and I thought I stressed my kids out!)

lisaschaos said...

Valium sounds like an important part of any bag! :) Why didn't they want your real signature - I think they're stupid! No one could read my husband's signature at all. :)

ChrisB said...

I thought I was looking at the inside of my wallet purse. I bought it in the states and it has a calculator exactly the same place.

Tiggerlane said...

Heather - I know, right? Jerks. And yeah - got my satchel...right here...

Sayre - I do have a mini purse with a strap, just for those type of occasions. I'm 'fessing up, here.

The Church Lady - it's all about the pockets...

Stephanie, Mama Dramatist - the satchel is REAL...but evidently, those of us with distinctive signatures are NOT.

Hootin' Anni - thank you! And I hear that she may be a "Doxie Pin" - but we named her "Shorty!"

Sandy - thanks, and I'll come visit you soon! Been missing my blog buddies!

Pamela - I like pursecution - for sure!

bermudabluez - I really do wonder what they do for those who are "important" and don't sign right - I should call my doctor friends and ask! Maybe it's an Arkansas thing?

Desert Songbird - WHAT? Say it isn't so! Maybe we are getting old? Nah...

Kila - I may have to post that! Or...well...maybe I'll have to send it in a private email. That might lead to a privacy issue.

karisma - they probably should! I wish I had discovered it YEARS ago...and I don't take it nearly as often as I should.

lisaschaos - probably the same logic they used when they wanted to use our SS#'s as our driver's license numbers - they INSISTED on it years ago, but then figured out how stupid it was!

ChrisB - I've now had FOUR like it!

wendy said...

Oooooh! That was fun to look through your wallet. I feel all voyeur-ish now! I think I'll go for a walk around the block at dusk and look into everyone's windows. heh!

I also DESPISE carrying a purse, but don't mind shlepping a mini back pack around to carry my snacks, cards, money, and camera. But most often I just put cash in my pocket and walk out. I don't even carry my license with me. Heck ... if I get pulled over they will make me take my license to court to prove I have one and then dismiss the charge. No worries.

I'm thinking a prozac salt lick might be a nice addition to my mini pack. :) Nah ... I don't currently have ANY kinds of drugs in my purse ... but that's just cuz I have no coverage right now.

Advil will have to do in the meanwhile. That and sugar. And cheetos. Man I love chips. That's why I generally don't buy them .. . but if I have them, I'll be packing them. Guaranteed.

Bond said...

Fine...I will take the credit cards off your hands... it is the least I can do

Occidental Girl said...

You are more organized than George Costanza, but I fear for the inevitable wallet explosion!

Desert Songbird said...

Yoooohoooooo!!!! Where are youuuuuuuuu???????

Tiggerlane said...

wendy - ooh....that's a huge drawback to my wallet - no room for cheetos!

bond - you ARE taking the payments, too - right? RIGHT??

Occidental Girl - I do have to "trim the fat" every so often - I rarely carry change, either, so that helps with the weight issue.

Desert Songbird - FB...it's all about the FB.

indavao - hi! I think?
