The parking lot, where I worked, had a fence all the way around it.
One work day, I parked in the parking lot next to the fence and got out of my car only to be attacked by a mother mockingbird. I had no idea there was a nest, in the fence, nearby and was shocked to see how protective and aggressive they are. My first response was to swing my purse at it in defense. When I did that, my purse and everything in my purse started flying out and spread out all over the parking lot. The bird kept coming back at me.
Still trying to defend myself from the mockingbird, I managed to collect my purse, all of the little bits of money / change and all of the many pieces of “stuff”. I was embarrassed and frightened, but finally safe once I made it inside the building.
You never know when “the world” will see what is in your purse. Beware of the mother mockingbird.
