Hi guys, I'm just wondering what my coworker meant. No biggie at all...My coworkers and I joke all the time and we have fun. So obviously I'm a girl and I work with 2 boys...Today i just had my lv illustration clutch with me and i put it on the table. Guy A said to guy B: Hey B, got any ones? I said "huh??"...Guy A responded: "Someone got a french purse" LOL I just laughed but not sure what he meant because they all laughed....Can someone shed some light? LOL

I'm guessing that it's a private joke between them...usually when people joke about having ones, it has something to do with strippers. But I can't really make sense of what they said. ???

hmmmm...my husband wouldn't even know what my bag was let alone calling it a french purse....maybe an inside joke. I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm thinking they meant "got any ones" as meaning $1 bills, and french purse, which equal, "Hey that an expensive purse, did you strip to earn it" That's my best guess, as it sounds like something my father-in-law would say joking around

That would be my guess as well.

My coworkers would say something similar (I'm the only girl in my workplace) but if you're good friends with them than no harm :smile: they're guys and their sense of humor is a little more rougher/strange/horny lol, but it's all in good fun! They don't know any better :amuse:

And you might have gotten to the point where they know you so well they just treat you as one of the guys which is a good!

I think at one time a "french purse" was used to mean a condom, also called a "french letter". Don't get the joke, men are silly sometimes!

I have to agree, I think that they were trying to say you have an expensive item and you couldn't have earned it just by working there alone so you had to strip for it. But guys are immature, my boyfriend and his friends always joke about my purses, just ignore it.
