Do You Know Where Your Purse Has Been Lately?

I have a "thing" about putting my purse on a public bathroom floor. Yes, I did just decide to do a post on the floors of a public restroom. After all, it's not like you've never been in one, right?

They can be as clean and immaculate looking as I've ever seen and I still wouldn't want to eat off that floor.

So recently, my purse accidentally fell off the hook and landed on the floor of the public restroom. (Hmmmmm, I wonder how many times I can say "public restroom" in one post?)

O.k., follow me here. Your purse sits on the floor of a public restroom (ha!) and then you bring it home and place it on your kitchen table......that you eat on. Or on your kitchen counter.....that you prepare food on.

Can you say "ewwwww!"

I just have a "thing" about that. Also, usually the first thing that someone does when they come into your home to visit is to deposit their purse. Whenever people come into my home, at some point, their purse usually winds up on my kitchen counter.

Now, think about it. Where do people set their purses? On the floor next to them when they're out somewhere, or on the floor of the car? The floor of the restroom? In the car trunk? On the grass next to them in the park? Sometimes they hang it over the back of a chair but not always.

I would not walk on my kitchen counters, and yet in a sense we're "walking" on them when you put our purse on them (if our purse has been on the floor).

O.k., I will stop my public service announcement and leave you all to ponder where your purse has been lately. You're welcome.

  4. Yes...I always think that too and try to put my purse on the hook or the toilet paper holder {I always seem to get the stall without a hook!} but I've never thought about other people's purses when they come over! They usually end up on the floor anyway...I think! ...sigh...just when you think you have it all covered! haha!

  5. I always thought about my purse and where it's been so it's put in the same place when I get home. Away from where we eat. But I never thought about when people come over and dump their purse on my table. UGH! I'll be paying more attention now.

  12. Ew, very gross, but kind of an eye opener. Thanks for the heads up that my purse is probably disgusting. Though I never put mine on a public washroom floor, mine has been on many other floors.

  15. OH I KNOW!!! They say that's one of the dirtiest things - the bottom of your purse just for those reasons, you smart mama. Also, the remote control in a hotel room - ewwwwwwwww. I need a Lysol pocket pal or something. Hope you're doing well ~ ♥
