I have nabbed myself a cool job. It is creative and I think it will be fun.

I have been eying a rather luscious briefcase, laptop carrier type thing.

I probably don't really need it, but it is sooooo pretty, and obviously will make me more professional, more highly regarded in my field. I bet it will even make me thinner, with improved muscle tone.

Aibu to buy it?wwyd?wwsd?

I like the bag a lot, great discount too so buy it! I hope you get the small cocks mag with it.

Well done on getting the job but that briefcase is proper horrible.

McNewPants2013 Sun 28-Apr-13 14:05:56

If you like it get it.

Congratulations and good luck in your new job

it's a ploy to make the ad go viral among snetters.

you have to buy the bag to get the leaflet.

There appears to be a leaflet sticking out of the pocket on the third picture that says 'small cocks'. Why is there a leaflet about cocks? Am I missing something?

I like it so I'd say treat yourself. My only concern would be how big it is. It already looks big on the man carrying it so on me it would drown me and look like I was going away for a long weekend.

I don't like it, but you do, so buy buy buy ! Congratulations. thanks smile

PeppaPigsMum I noticed that too. Do you think they were real PITA at the photo shoot & the photographer snuck it in?

Has anyone else been distracted by the magazine being carried in the bag in one of the photos (3rd one along)?

ps congratulations on the new job, like the bag, think you should get it.

Whenever I get a new job I buy from these guys.

I don't love your choice but it is your choice. Go for it!

I found out yesterday I had got a new job.

Today I purchased-

New shoes from Clarks
New top from Mint Velvet
Blazer from Whistles

This is a MASSIVE spend for me, the last item of clothing I got for was a cheap breastfeeding top from H&M.

But my new job is a life saver, so I DESERVE it.

What I'm trying to say us do it, get it!!!

make me feel less guilty

Noodle?

I said it was an interesting job. I don't kid myself it's high status. I'll carry tons!

PigletJohn Fri 26-Apr-13 22:43:45

p.s.

What is a holy cow?

PigletJohn Fri 26-Apr-13 22:43:21

it's too big.

The noodle reference in the ad would put me right off it.

High-status people don't carry things.

Sorry.

ryanboy Fri 26-Apr-13 22:37:26

a new briefcase? rock n roll!!!!

ecclesvet Fri 26-Apr-13 22:29:21

It's huge!

racmun Fri 26-Apr-13 22:23:55

It's a bit like a bowling ball bag

But if you love it get it- it's pretty reasonable and if you use it every day cost per wear it will work great vfm!!

apostropheuse Fri 26-Apr-13 22:22:55

Congratulations on your new job! You buy it if you like it!

To be honest, I don't like it, but hey it's not me that would be using it.

AgentZigzag Fri 26-Apr-13 22:22:39

*Apart from if you're looking for something quickly with someone waiting for it in front of you, and embarrassingly have to look through every single pocket twice to find it.

IDoTakeTwo Fri 26-Apr-13 22:21:47

Ha ha enjoy your snigger.

Have you seen any nicer ones about then?

AgentZigzag Fri 26-Apr-13 22:21:13

I can't even come close to having an opinion on whether it's a good briefcase or not (having never had cause to own a briefcase, and not even a mild handbag fetish), but agree with Piff that multiple pockets and stuff are always a good thing in a bag.

LayMizzRarb Fri 26-Apr-13 22:20:33

I don't like it, but that is totally irrelevant! Everyone has different personal tastes in bags.

Congratulations - if it does not cause you to go into debt then you go for it, and ENJOY it!

It DOES look a little bit like a bottom, though wink

tigerdriverII Fri 26-Apr-13 22:14:39

I don't like it either, sorry. But I do think you should get a nice briefcase to celebrate your job. Congratulations!
