I did not know my words are extreme and vague but thanks for pointing that out. Words are not easy for me and I explain it the best I can. It can take me a long time just to craft one sentence.

I fail to see a link between this and anything comprehensible, and carrying handbags..... :???: Sorry, I don't do that.

I was commenting on a quote from this thread:

ftopic91430-0-asc-150.html

And I created a new thread because:

"ppl, Im a bit pissed off. A little bit of off-topic is fine, but its taking too long already. Manpower tightening is very important subject (at least to me). Please, create a separate thread for ur recent discusson."

I don't go round forcing or brainwashing my hubby that he must carry my purse. A few days ago during an outing, my big bulgy purse got really heavy and it was hurting my shoulder. So I enlisted his help. He was usually quite reluctant to be seen with a woman's big fat purse but this time he obliged.


Anymore questions?

If a few people openly say they don't know what you are talking about this sounds like a good indication.

By the way, I don't mean to be rude or attacking so please don't take it personal and don't feel offended.

I know. And I don't get offended that easily. Don't worry about it.

'squeeze me please,

why weren't more things removed from the bag to reduce the amount of hurt?

I did not know I would be causing so much confusions, on the rare occasion that I start a discussion.:P Anyway, thanks for all the feedbacks. It has been useful.

I suppose I could split the load of my handbag. It is a new bag, heavier and I am still getting used to it. It would not have been a problem with my old backpack which distributes the weight evenly.

A more descriptive title than "new thread" would help. Not everyone reads all of the other threads, so a lot of us have no idea how this conversation started.

I thought this was the split-out from the '...manpower.." thread per Segei's comment, and rightfully so. I could be wrong.

If so it could serve the purpose, may need a Mod or Admin to change the title and move over some of the preceding posts about MBTI.

Or not....

More about men who help carry purses. I was in the store the other day and found a purse in a color I really liked, called balletslipper pink. Not sure if my hubby will be too enthusiastic about carrying it though :-P .
