True princess? or just common sense?

May 11, 2013
Found this in a shop 10 minutes after this anecdote

We were walking around Sonoma last month and ran into a half price sale on leather bags. Oh, I love purses, I do, and this deal was too good to pass up.

But when I tried to check out, the credit card machine wouldn’t process. Girlfriend & I wanted to continue our shopping, so we left the purse there and told the clerk we’d return later.

When we returned to the tasting room at which we’d left our husbands, the four of us decided to split up so the women could shop and the men could…talk about manly things. We agreed to meet in an hour.

Since manly talk can be done anywhere, I suggested my husband drop by the shop where I’d left the purse and complete the transaction.   It seemed reasonable to me, because we women had a mission to visit every shop in Sonoma Square and the men were just killing time.

My husband didn’t agree.

“I can’t believe you expected M. to go buy your purse,” girlfriend said to me a few minutes later.

“Why not? He wasn’t doing anything and we were.”

“Oh,” she laughed, “you ARE a princess!”

I just didn’t see it.  She and I had things to do, the guys were just killing time. How hard would it be to walk in a store and complete the purchase?

So I ask you: is this princess behavior?

or just a simple favor asked?

    Spoiled and pampered are not necessarily the same thing.
