Rant alert! Whenever I need anything out of my purse and it’s closer to my husband the conversation usually goes exactly like this:
Man: Where are my shades? Have you seen them?
Wife: Yup, I thought you might leave them on the counter in the store so I put them in my purse.
Man: Sigh. Can you get them? I want to wear them to walk The Dog.
Wife: Um, my bag’s sitting right next to you. Just grab them honey.
Man: You know I’m not going in there!
Man picks up bag and tosses it in Wife’s lap.
Man: Just get them for me please. That bag is no man’s land!
Wife: Sigh. You have got to be kidding me!
Seriously, that’s pretty much how it goes every single time. Please note that he will quicker hold or carry my bag for me when I’m juggling too much than he would go into it to get something. What the huh? Each time I get annoyed that he’s annoyed that he has to go in my bag and I ask him what gives. His response is always the same and it’s usually a min rant to the tune of “there’s way too much stuff in there it frustrates me” or “who can find anything in there?” So let’s get this straight here: I can dig through a massive pile of your dirty laundry and workout clothes to help you out when you’re frantically looking for a matching sock to wear to work, but you can’t rummage through some makeup, hair supplies, and magazines for me? There’s a problem here. Men, face your fears, I beg you! A woman’s bag will not bite you, promise!
Now, in all fairness (this blog will never be a husband-bashing vehicle) I gave my husband a chance to respond to this on camera. Here is his (hilarious!) vlog response, all weigh-ins welcome!
