This morning I had to go to the courthouse and was promptly informed by the deputy at the door that cell phones, purses and handbags were no longer allowed in the building and if I didn't want to voluntarily return them to my car I would be searched and the items would be confiscated. But a man can bring his wallet into the building. Security is being used as the excuse or reason for this and as long as I can carry in my two hands what I need to conduct business in the courthouse I can bring the items in I just can't carry them in a bag. But a man can have a wallet not searched for any reason. Does this make no sense to you like it makes absolutely no sense to me?

I don't know that the courthouse was much different where I live now or where I used to live. A friend of mine had to go to court for something having to do with her STBX and while she could bring her phone in, it had to be turned off. I don't recall her saying that she could bring a purse, but come to think of it she really only carries a coin / card satchel so that's sort of like her wallet.

I'm a pretty light traveler...i leave my purse in the car anyways whenever i can. If i need my i.d. or credit card they can easily fit into my pocket. It's a non-issue for me.
