As a man, I probably shouldn’t be telling you our secret codes for fear of being kicked out — kicked out of the Man Club.
Scenario: Your wife or your lady friend hands you her purse to hold while she performs some non purse-holding task.
Mancode#613: Never throw the strap over your shoulder and wear it like it is a normal accessory for you. This could draw the wrong kind of attention or cause people to think of you in a sub-dude sort of way. The proper way to handle this situation is to grasp the purse from underneath and hold it awkwardly and away from your body as if it were a steaming bag of something gross. When she ceases her non purse-holding task, return it to her with a cooperative smile and a slight look of disgust. Just don’t overdo it or you may not be hanging out with her for very long.
