recently i went to the store and i used a store card to buy some stuff. i needed to use a pen to sign the receipt and i asked the associate if she had a pen. she was rifling around for one on the counter and said, "you mean you don't have one?" as she motioned towards my mono speedy 30. i replied, "i never carry pens in my purses because i'm unlucky and mine would definitely leak!" she gave me this weird, disgusted look as if to say, "oh, she wouldn't want to mark up your pretty bag!?!" well darn right, but i don't even carry pens in my less expensive bags. the only writing instrument i ever carry is a mechanical pencil in my organizer. the only other thing that could make a mess in my bags is my lip gloss and that's in my makeup pouch. does anyone else fear carrying pens around or am i the lone weirdo on this?
