Re: Please Tell Her to Not Call the Handbags She/Her! Please

I have male and female Dooney and GILI purses so they can mate when I put them in the closet and then I have enough to gift one to everyone on the planet as the hosts tells us to do.

Don't worry, be Happy!

A person who identifies something as something it isn't is just wrong.  Same with the purse.

And Travelon and don't forget Mizrahi's Bridgehamton purses.  QVC is partly the Isaac Mizrahi Network.

But you're referring to someone as "her" when she has a name.


 

I figure posters don't say a certain host's name is because a fan will report it to moderators and then POOF! No one is free to discuss "her" unless it is a positive post.

It might irritate you, but it sure gets you to listen and pay attention doesn't it?  GOT YA don't they?

And yet, that's why they're called personal pronouns and not purse-onal pronouns...

Actually, not so much...  I was interested in seeing the Dooney TSV so I watched about ten minutes of the initial presentation and that was about as much as I could endure, what with all the perky gushing and with all the 'she's and 'hers' fully intact. I found it utterly witless...Turned it off without buying.

HAHA!  They "got" me only because i wanted to see the TSV, and one other bag. Then i fell asleep.  Maybe it was only a coincident but she used the affectation far less last night.  So maybe someone whispered in her ear, chill on the female pronoun!😀

.......obviously Dooney bags bring in high sales, consistently.  Those other brands.....did not.   Retailers like money.
