Things you just don't get - Page 348

post #5206 of 13709
I don't understand those people who walk into the office lobby with what looks like their entire lives with them in bags and roller suitcases. WTF could you possibly need to drag with you to and fro work? This is the most convenient city in the world, not the Sahara fucking desert.

yeah, the Mrs really doesn't identify with girly things, either, but the school does, in a big big way. At some point she'll outgrow it and I'm not quite in a hurry to get there.

The mind fairly boggles.

No kidding. Good luck to them.

To me, it always looks like they should contain sex toys or crotchless panties - I think it's a very strange choice for an extra holdall.

Because they want to remember that there's a woman under the conservative corporate shell.

Man, I have all the answers today.

My guy is too small to be concerned about clothing that doesn't have "Lightnin' BaKeen" or Thomas the Train emblazoned on it, but I do try to dress him nicely when it's appropriate. When this happens, he usually coordinates with me but isn't matchy-matchy. My favorite so far were the seersucker short pants and polo he wore for his first Easter. It coordinated well with my seersucker pants and OCBD, but it wasn't an exact match.

That said, I can already see bits of my personality coming out. Music is the best example; it's hugely important in our household. I started playing guitar for him when he was a little baby, and, before he could even walk, he was doing stuff like strumming my guitar when I sat in front of him and played. He also picked up air fiddle at some point when he was about 15 months old. He loves Old Crow Medicine Show, and I'd goof off when we'd listen to it and pretend I was playing the fiddle parts. One day, I looked in the back seat, and he was sawing away at the air! Now he picks out fiddle parts and tells me about them. He's also pretty particular about what he likes, though that doesn't mean he's limited to a specific genre.

Oh, and he's a big Jimmy Buffett fan!

Because marketing is very effective at altering behavior.

This is even better when it's a beat up, often reused Neiman Marcus or Hermes bag.

I love those people that carry shit around in old designer bags. It is usually somebody who doesn't look like they have owned anything designer in their lives.

I hope I encounter this on the ride home today just so I can post about it here. If I can, I'll snap a picture.

I always feel rough about this, I don't keep bags laying around the house, so if ever have to carry something unusually it will end up in one of those cardboard bags with a brand name on it. I don't want to look like I'm showing off but I simply don't have an alternative in my house.
