When going out for dinner at a restaurant, where should you leave your bag? 1, 2 or 3? 


The right answer is below!

1. Do not place the bag on the table.

Every woman was probably in a situation to sit down at a table and start looking for where to put her purse. Don’t put any of your stuff on the table! And we're not just talking about your bag, but your sunglasses and phone.

2. It is also not a good idea to put the bag on the floor.

It's not very hygienic, and it could scratch the bottom, which will probably only upset you if it's a very expensive bag. When you place it on the floor it could also get easily accidentally kicked by someone.

3. Leave the bag on your chair. 

When you visit a restaurant with someone else and you have a handbag with you, you should not keep it on the table. What you should do it hang it on the chair you’re sitting on, by hanging it on your chair and it won’t bother or interrupt anyone.
