If there is in fact a good reason, this may be the dumbest thing I have written yet.  But I really don’t think there is.  I just don’t get it.  It looks super uncomfortable, not to mention kinda pretentious and snooty.  Sometimes I see women talking on the phone with a bag on their elbow, but then the other arm is usually just dangling there.  I could understand maybe if you needed both hands to send a text or something, but then why not just hold the bag in your hand again when you’re done?  Seriously, I need an explanation for this.  I’m betting I get a few comments with reasons why, but I also bet none of them are actually very logical.  Free subscription to my blog for life to anyone with an answer that actually makes sense.

Just now I had some second thoughts about posting this.  I think there may be a little backlash from the “pretentious and snooty” comment.

    lol i read this and busted out laughing.

    it’s actually more comfortable. Imagine having to carry a briefcase 24/7…it gets in the way when you have to hold it with your hands all the time. If you hold it in your hands you’re much more likely to sit it down and forget it (or at least i am lol)

    I also carry like 100 lbs of bs in my bag so holding it on my elbow helps to even out the weight a lil.

    I prefer shoulder bags personally.

    I hope this answered your question….I rarely reply to blog posts but this question really cracked me up for some reason.
