14 Jan Not My Bag
“It’s not a purse. It’s a lunch bag.”
As engineers, surveyors, and landscape architects, we often carry some unusual work-related accessories. We’ve already covered how hard hats are a girl’s best friend. But there are lots of strange things we carry in and out of the office related to our work, like measuring wheels, manhole hooks (Google it if you’ve never seen one—they’re vicious-looking), sledgehammers, and traffic cameras (also big and sort of unidentifiable if you’re not a traffic engineer). Add that to the non-work related things we keep in our cars, and we have quite the collection of items far more random than a pink purse… ahem, “lunch bag.”
So don’t feel ashamed Luke, and carry that uncommon bag proudly. Besides, it’s not that your bag is pink, it’s that it doesn’t have Choice One green on it (if only we knew where to get you one of those…). Regardless, if you keep your keys in it, Luke, it’s a purse. No matter how much lunch is in it.
