I've come to the realization that my things are irresistible. I can draw no other conclusion. Exhibit A was two weeks ago when that woman reached out to rub her hand on my yellow purse and play with the tassels. Exhibit B was this weekend. I was at my local drug store. I went to pay for my items and when I did so, I pulled out my orange flower wallet...
The cashier said, "I like your wallet."
I replied, "Thanks, my sister gave it to me."
She said, "Wow, I really like that. Where'd you get it?"
"I think it's from Alaska."
Then she picked up my wallet, waved it over her head, and screamed, "HEY THERESA!!! Come over here! I wanna show you something!"
I must have been standing there with my mouth open.
When Theresa walked over, she said, "Check out this wallet, isn't it great? I really like it!"
Theresa said, "Yeah, that's real pretty."
My cashier said, "Yeah! I knew you'd like it, so I had to show it to you! Where'd you say you got it from again, honey? I gotta get one of these! It's just perfect 'cause I walk all the time, to and from work, too, and I don't carry a purse like you got there, I just carry my lunch bag and it'd be nice to have a wallet like this so I could just put it in my lunch bag and not worry about getting robbed or nothin'."
Thankfully, by this time, she had put my wallet down and it was safely in my possession again. But is it just me, or is it not normal to touch or pick up other people's things without asking? Am I off base here?
