This is the kind of story that makes a guy say, "Why didn't she just let go of her purse?" and makes a woman say, "I totally get it."
On Tuesday, a 22-year-old woman was walking in downtown Edinburgh, Scotland, when a car pulled up next to her. (The woman's name wasn't released.) One of the three men in the car called out to her and she walked over.
When she got close, one of the guys reached through the window and grabbed her Louis Vuitton purse. The car sped off . . . but that bag is EXPENSIVE, and the woman wasn't about to let it go that easily.
For our male listeners, Louis Vuitton bags cost anywhere from $650 to several thousand dollars.
So she held on, DRAGGING behind the car, as they tried to shake her off. When the guy holding her purse realized she wasn't going anywhere, he decided to let go.
Somehow, the woman wasn't hurt badly, but she did go to the hospital to get treated for some minor injuries.
The police haven't caught the guys in the car just yet, but they're on the lookout for big Manley cross dressers without purses.
