WHERE DO I PUT MY BAG?
Have you ever thought about where the right place to put your handbag is?
This is a thought that comes to every woman’s mind when she is about to grab her handbag before heading out. As we all know, the size of the bag often determines where it can be placed when seated at a table at a café or a restaurant.
Most women tend to run around with large handbags.
We love them because they are spacious enough to carry practically everything we might need.
These big bulky bags however, do pose the problem of where to keep them while we are seated a table.
THE EMPTY SEAT
Of course, the other viable option would be to place our bag on an empty seat next to us.
Most of the time though, this is not always possible, especially in tiny cafes where space is limited and we simply cannot hoard an entire chair for our belongings.
ON THE FLOOR
At this point, there is no other way other than that of shoving our bag or purse, no matter how beautiful or expensive, on the floor right next to your chair.
Make sure to place your bag right underneath, so as not to be in the way of the rushing staff or the customers.
TRY A PURSE HOOK
Something else you should consider is the use of a purse hook.
It is a small device, easily obtainable, that hooks over the edge of the table. In this way you can hang your handbag while keeping it in sight and off the dreaded floor.
They tend to be smaller and lighter. It is easier to figure out where to place them.
They can be discreetly tucked between you and the back of your chair or simply placed flat on your lap, underneath your napkin.
A bag or purse should never be left hanging casually over the back of your chair or bar stool.
Firstly, it could get in the way of passersby, who would knock it onto the floor or worse still, trip and fall over it.
The other obvious reason is that when in a crowd, no one would ever realize if your bag hanging behind you, were to be stolen.
HYGIENE COMES FIRST
The most important tip to keep in mind is that no matter what the occasion, the place or the size or brand of your bag, placing it on the dining table is never acceptable for one very important reason.. HYGIENE!
Our handbags go to countless floors, washrooms and public places every hour of every day. Placing it right in the space where food is about to be served is not only inappropriate but also inconsiderate to others.
to sum it up:
– Do not place your bag on the floor unless it is a large bag or tote.
– Do not drape your handbag on the back of your chair
– Do not place your bag on the table, no matter how small or precious it is.
– Do not ask to another person at your table to put your bag on their chair
There you have it! now that you don’t have to wonder anymore about where to put your bag, you will enjoy your dinner out and have fun!
