We now interrupt our regularly scheduled program to bring you the first installment of Teen Talk. Be assured, everything you are about to hear is real and unedited. Please, do not try this at home.
One day at the Walgreens checkout…
Mom: “Teen, could you please carry the bag?”
Teen: (picks up bag) “Why do I have to carry the bag?”
Mom: “Because, you are a guy, and guys carry things for girls.”
Mom: “Except a girl’s purse. You don’t have to carry a girl’s purse.”
Teen: “Right, there is no need for that kind of shame until you’re married!”
OMG too funny! I have three children of my own…I could even hear the voice inflection as I read your post. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Wow! Thank you. That is a wonderful compliment!
I just came across your blog last week…and I really enjoy your writing style. I’m just beginning to blog..a bit uncertain in many areas…but as I read others (including yourself) I’m getting more comfortable w/ the venue..and my own voice. Thank you for your wit and style. 🙂
You are welcome! I am checking out your blog right now!
Truth! I still carry a purse between two fingers like a dirty diaper and WILL NOT open it of my own accord. It is a cave of wonder and nightmares. At least it’s not a fanny pack! ~ 😉 Dan
haha! That is funny – kudos to you for even carrying “the purse” at all! I try to not let my husband carry it, but sometimes he insists – but he scrunches it all up like a paper bag.
Absolute truth. Although, every time I am asked to carry a purse, I “accidentally” lose it. I am not asked very often.
Now, that is one way to get out of it!
Hilarious – teehee:)Have a Great Day!
Thanks! You too.
Bahaha – very good transcript of teen/parent interaction! As I have three teenage girls, I won’t get exactly the same, but I SO recognise the inflections there!
Honestly, what do guys think they’re going to catch off a woman’s handbag – feminine hormones? LOL
Right! But, somehow seeing my husband carrying my purse has always bugged me – lol!
It’s only shameful and embarrassing to carry a woman’s purse early in marriage. After you’ve changed a million diapers, wear a pink Hello Kitty backpack 5 days a week, sing publicly and shuffle your kids in and out of 4 public bathrooms every time you’re out, holding your wife’s purse becomes “if it mean 10 minutes of being left alone in peace, I’ll do anything.”
lol! You definitely have a great point there!
Lol. Thanks for the laugh!
You are welcome!
Yep. That sounds about right. Captured it perfectly. My son and I concur. Erin
Thanks for the back up!
No, anyone is welcome to carry my handbag because it weighs an absolute ton! 😉
Are you sure it isn’t a suitcase? lol!
Backpack. 5 kilos average. 😉
That was funny! Thanks. And thank you for visiting over at Take 10 from FTF. I really enjoyed peeking into your blog and plan to return. I love the Sedona photos. My husband and I were just there in September…and it was fabulous.
Thank you for visiting! I always enjoy finding new funny blogs through Finding the Funny!
Thank you, my teen is constant source of humor!
Ha! That’s right! After they’re married, they must hold the purses with pride!
I agree! But, I try to minimize my husbands shame!
Oh, my goodness! This doesn’t even sound real. It sounds like a scene from a movie. Thanks for the laughs! Thanks for linking up with us over at #findingthefunny this week!
I assure you – all real. I almost busted a gut right there in the Walgreens parking lot!
Oh that sounds just like my 12 year old son! This age just cracks me up!
I completely agree! Thanks for reading!
