    I had an argument with my wife yesterday and I want to get feedback on it. When we left the house, I found that I left my keys behind. Unfortunately she also did. The argument was, I told her I inadvertently left my keys behind (forgetfulness) whereas she leaves her keys behind as a policy when we go out together. When I thought about it I realized that she's not the only woman I've been with who does this. Even if they carry a purse they leave behind their money (this is perhaps understandable), identification, credit cards, keys.

    Men, have you seen this behavior?

    Women, do you do this and if so what is the point of it? What kind of pleasure do women get out of leaving the house without these items?

    My wife leaves her keys at home a lot. I think it's because she thinks that as long as I have mine, she doesn't need hers.

    (Disclaimer: I'm not taking sides in your domestic dispute! :D )

    That's true in most cases, but what if you lose or forget yours?

    And why did you change your moniker? Have you abandoned the GOP or are you just celebrating your bass playing?

    Not all women do this.

    Your wife does it just to piss you off..and because she can.

    I don't carry a purse unless necessary (to hold make-up and other essential incidentals. :D ). I leave what I don't need at home. Easy enough?

    Fine but she had a nice big purse with her. I think there's something psychological about it, like pleasure in being helpless.

    I empty my handbag (purse) for the following reasons:

    a) I change it to match whatever I'm wearing that day

    b) I take out all unnecessary items . . . like keys, umbrellas, credit cards if my hubby is along for the ride, that are heavy and will weigh me down. The lighter the better - bags can make your neck or shoulder ache after a while if too heavy!

    And besides - isn't that the point of having a big strong man around? To save us from carrying all those things . . . . ;) ;) ;)

    Who know.

    On the other hand, why would she need her keys if you had yours?

    I know in my case, bringing keys always involves a search, so why bother if he has his?
