At the bus stop today, lovely blond lady "That's one of those Hurrmmess bags right?"
I politely said yes.
She said "They have pretty things."
I said "Yes, they do." Then I had to catch my bus.

I laid my new Birkin on the counter in Nordstrom yesterday and the SA said "excuse me miss, you left the plastic on your bag". I haven't taken the plastic off of the hardware yet so I thanked her and as I walked away I smoothed the plastic back down.

On a recent trip New York, I was carrying my BJ shoulder Birkin and one of my companions on the trip asked me about my bag. As I was explaining about the leather and Hermes, she said "I thought it was Coach" :rolleyes:

DH and I were deciding whether or not to invest in another property .... Basically, we made a fair offer for a property that we both like very much (its got potential for shopmom's dream walk-in wardrobe with a chandelier, and my dream open concept kitchen cum entertainment area) but the seller really wanted to try his luck by asking for more; attempting to talk the price up.

DH does not like to play games, and told the agent "Thank you, but no thank you." I was disappointed that DH didn't want to counter offer a price, to seal the deal. He was disappointed that I didn't support his decision. He then turned to me and said, "the price difference may be small but that's the equivalent of 4 Birkin's." Guess what I said "OK, you've convinced me." :roflmfao:

That's hilarious! We do Hermes math at home too. :P

A few months ago I was at the Container Store with the Vermillion Chevre and the sweet woman helping me asked me if that was the "Oprah" bag. I laughed and said it was and then she asked to hold it. She was so excited and said, "I have to tell my daughter!" It really made Ms. Vermillion feel like a little celeb for a few minutes there...

DH says last night, "I can't wait until you have everything you want from Hermes." Meaning...surely you are almost "done"... LOL...
