Recently, my mother wanted me to measure the dimensions of my queen size mattress (I’m in the process of moving). I did not have my own tape measurer at my apartment. Knowing that she has one, I asked her if I could borrow it. We were going out to eat and could conveniently exchange the item. Easy, right?
My mother’s reponse? ”You should probably ask your roommate or use a piece of scrap paper because I like to keep the tape measure inside my purse at ALL TIMES.” DENIED!!!
Now I’m not exactly sure why she needs to have this in her purse on a regular basis and I really don’t even want to know. As a real person, I’m not typically whipping my handy dandy tape measurer out and measuring things. I pretty much can tell using my eyes whether something is big, medium, or small. My eyes are pretty reliable.
(If I was to have a tape measurer in my purse, the last one would be my tool of choice thanks!!!)
