Sure, it looks like you bought it from Marshalls for $30, and it was probably assembled by the same Indonesian sweatshop child laborer as the Marshalls bag, but isn't that price worth it for you to advertise your wealth and utter lack of taste to the world by owning this ugly-ass piece of shiat?

The management's position is that the waiter is responsible for the cost. They're suing the waiter.

If the waiter loses the suit he should just mail her a few pennies every month for the rest of his life, but they will probably garnish it from his future wages.

Wait, is that really a picture of the $30k handbag?  I would swear that my wife has one just like that, which she ordered off of Amazon for less than $100.

Then again, it's hard to say because I'm a man and my wife's five pink handbags all look exactly the same to me.

She'll get mad at you if you don't compliment her on her new hairstyle, and how her new shoes match the purse.

"Negligent Hiring"   Because during an interview for a 12$ an hour job, there should be more emphasis with questions like "have you ever made a mistake?" And if answered yes, you aren't eligible for the position.  I would bet that the server either tripped over that same lady's kid, or the handbag itself left out carelessly in the way.

My business associate  talks about bags a lot. I don't always understand most of it except that unlike clothing, belts etc - some women think high quality bags are accessories worth spending money on because their money per wear occasion value can be high. You can wear them on all occassions, all weight gains/losses, all ages and all seasons and they are not subjected to wear as easily. (Unlike clothes, scarves or shoes).

So ultimately even if you spend 4 or 5 figures on them, you are thinking you are going to use them for decades so it does not seem as wasteful. And if the leather, hardware, assembly is topnotch, the bag will last that long with basic care. Which okay... this kind of makes sense but...

But why does one need an entire bag for in the first place?

I am involved presently in what I consider a non-frivolous lawsuit. It has been going on for over four years, and I am getting sick of dealing with it.
Here is what transpired:
I was getting out of my Lamborghini in front of my summer mansion (north driveway, not near the south wing), when something went wrong with the car and it backfired.
This caused one of my neighbors dogs to start barking, and it startled one of my pet llamas on the west field of my property near the indoor golf building (the blue one, not the green one, it's being renovated into a second bowling alley at the moment.) The llama (Micheal) broke down a fence separating the llama field from the steeplechase area, which unbeknownst to me, made a divot in the ground tripping a horse three days later.
The horse was not seriously injured, but the rider, my cousin Charles' youngest daughter Mariposa had to see a physician for a twisted wrist.
Since the only two servants I had on staff that day with U.S. drivers licences were sick from "heat stroke" I personally had to drive her to the doctor. The Lambo was on the other side of the house, so we had to take one of the other cars from the warehouse, a Mercedes-Maybach GLS.
The drive to the physician and examination went smoothly, but the drive home is where the problem occurred.
The physicians office had one of those quaint "Kuerig" machines to make coffee, and I had made a cup of what was aptly named "almond nut macchiato" of which I has not the time to complete while waiting for Mariposa's results.
I brought the remainder  of the coffee into my Mercedes-Maybach GLS and inserted the cup into the console cup holder, but some spilled on my leg and burned a little, causing me several seconds of distress.
This led to the ongoing lawsuit, involving myself, Mercedes-Maybach, my neighbor (and his dog), the steeplechase fence company, two of my servants, Lamborghini, the physicians office, Keurig, and my personal llama breeder Juan Gonzales.
After all these years I sometimes just want to dismiss the case, but you know....it's the principle of it. People need to learn to be more responsible!

Up until fairly recently it was not that common for womenswear to have functional pockets. Thankfully that has changed a lot recently. I rarely bother buying day to day clothing without pockets now. Occasion clothing is tricky because form fitting clothing with pockets especially with curvy hips doesn't really create the silhouette the outfit was going for. It ends up looking lumpy and you run the risk of stuff falling out of your pocket too.

There's nothing wrong with women (or men or non binary people or anyone) carrying a handbag or backpack or briefcase etc. People have stuff we need to carry. We have even more now because of the 'rona.

The problem here is more that no boring, basic handbag should cost more than a car. You can get a really good, long lasting bag for less than $50 pretty much anywhere. I have several. I usually just get mine because they are themed around things I like (shaped like a bat, looks like the haunted mansion wallpaper, literally made from an old book) or have neat colors for when I need more "serious" ones for business/somber events. I've had some of them for 30+years.

No one spends $30K on a mundane looking bag unless they just want to show off their wealth.

Like Tibet, it was also an independent nation with its own language, culture, and government until we militarily occupied and forcibly annexed it, and killed its royal family.
It shouldn't be part of the U.S., and hopefully when we implode they will regain independence.
