Dear Dude w/ purse,
Look. I know holding a purse for your wife while she is in the bathroom may feel a bit awkward. Still, that’s no reason to hold it out in front of you like it’s evil or let it drag on the ground while you do the “what’s taking her so long” pace back and forward.
You weren’t the only dude out there waiting for a woman to come out of the restroom. Everyone else managed to hold purses, coats, etc without treating them like dirty diapers.
No one is telling you to sling it over your shoulder; your manhood won’t be compromised if you treated her purse like a regular package.
