FUN MONDAY - A Bargain



Our this week's host Mama Drama wants to know : What type of tale would you create as to why you had to ditch your underwear in the parking garage at work?

I think I have to change the story a bit, because I never had a parking garage at work. Fortunately I have another underwear story and this is a real one.

A lot of you know that when the sun is shining I like to take the train to Brussels and go to the big midi market on sundays. This time I found wonderful panties very chic and white like I love them and only for 1 € ! This was unbelievable. So I bought 5 put 4 in my little rucksack which I always take with me if ever I find something very cheap but heavy. To carry on your back is easier than in your hands. But as it is always difficult to get the rucksack off my back and I had finished my shopping, I put one panty in my purse because I wanted to show it to my friend whom I should meet at the Waterloo station.

When the ticket controller arrived, I opened my purse to take out the ticket but instead pulled out my beautiful white panty which fell on the floor. I bent down to pick it up, but the man was quicker, he held it up so that everybody in the compartment had a nice view on it and asked with a big smile : "Is that yours ?" I smiled too (what should I do else) and said "yes it's mine, I just bought 5 of them on the market ! it was a real bargain. I can only recommend". Then I took it back put it in my purse, gave him my ticket and we all laughed. Only the controller looked a little disappointed when he walked away.

So the controller would rather he have your undies than your ticket? I know there's a crude joke in there somewhere.
I accidentally pulled out a pair of underwear instead of a pencil during a Spanish exam in college after a hard night of partying, I mean studying.

That's a funny story, Gattina!! I bet the passengers had a great laugh and spoke about the incident at work the next day!!

You spoiled his imagining just what they were doing in your purse. LOL

That was too funny.

I wrote a song! Come over...and bring your best singing voice.

Happy Fun Monday.

Perhaps he thought you were going to let him keep the undies for a memento!?!? I didn't have any undy stories, so I didn't participate in this week's FM! I do have a regular post up if you'd like to stop by. I will jump back in next week!

Cute story! I would have blushed. You handled yourself with grace and humor - good for you! This is my first Fun Monday -stop by and say hello if you have time!

Melli said...

LOL! I remember when you bought those panties! You blogged them - you were so excited!

claudie said...

You had the best reaction! What doing??? I imagine if he had catch the panties of the daughters!!! They were often strings they buy on the market too for about the same price!

Very funny! You got a bargain AND a good story. LOL.

Faye said...

Gattina, I suppose the moral of your story was that it's impossible to embarrass a lady who's just scored a great bargain on a favorite item? Bet the ticket taker will think twice before volunteering any opinions about what accidentally falls out of a lady's purse!

And, don't you just love having a good supply of something all important like undies that you know will do exactly what they're supposed to do?

Sayre said...

Too funny! I suppose he was expecting you to be all flustered and embarrassed - and when you weren't - HE was!

I finally got mine up. Sorry it's so late!

Loved the story and it was true besides.

Great story, gattina! My old dog, Harvey, loved to carry knickers - preferably worn - in his mouth to greet visitors.
