Hundreds of years from now, if archaeologists unearth our wallets, they are going to know just about everything there is to know about who we are.
Whether you call it a wallet or a purse, whether you carry a designer piece, an LV knock-off or a fraying Velcro-sealed tri-fold, where you keep your money is the key to your personality.
You don’t even need to open your mouth. Once you drop your purse on the table, you’ve already given everything away…
You have an EFTPOS card, a credit card and some crisp notes in the note section (definitely not shoved into the change compartment). You have a few gold coins in change, but you like to stay on top of that by using the correct change on every occasion. You always know how much money you have in your purse and in your accounts.
You are a thinker. Maybe even an over-thinker (but since when is thinking too much a crime?). You like to arrive on time, but the first thing you ask when you arrive is whether there is somewhere you can charge your phone.
You enjoy sorting out your wardrobe. You spent too much on your vacuum cleaner and you probably lied about it. When you are in the passenger seat of your friend’s car, you always open the glove box. If she’s not looking, you clean it out.
You get a loyalty card! You get a loyalty card! You get a loyalty card! EVERYBODY GETS A LOYALTY CARD.
The bulk in your wallet is not coins. It’s not receipts. It’s not business cards. It’s the loyalty cards that you are too nice to refuse when a shop assistant asks you whether you want to sign up for their program and get an extra 5% off if you spend $500 in the next three days.
You’re a generous person. When people are jerks to you, you probably respond with kindness because that’s definitely the best way to deal with negativity in your life. If a shop assistant is rude, they’ve probably had a bad day. You are nice to telemarketers. You definitely give money to bad buskers because at least they’re giving it a go.
