Which Handbag?

Hilda Mond was admiring and looking at the handbags at a shop at Venice. Her husband was sitting beside her looking bored.” Which one do you think I should take?”, she asked. “I have really no idea. All the handbags look the same to me.” Hilda asked the price of the bags she had selected, one was blue and the other one was white. Both of them were worth five euros. Soon, they were coming out of the shop with the blue one. They had to board a train. 45 minutes were still left for the train to leave. The station was at walking distance from the shop. The train was there at the platform and they boarded it. 30 minutes were left. ” I have made the wrong choice. A blue bag goes with only a blue dress whereas a white bag goes with all dresses”, Hilda said. As her husband loved her very much, he volunteered to run back to the shop and exchange the bag. He ran to the shop. Only 20 minutes were left. He asked the attendant to exchange the bag for a white bag worth five euros. The one his wife was looking at a few minutes back. ” I can’t remember everything a customer sees. There are many white bags worth five euros. Take your pick”, the attendant said. He was very confused. He selected the bag. He was sure thag this was the right bag as he ran out hurriedly. Only 10 minutes were left. He ran past honking cars and heard a lot of curses from angry drivers. He made it to the train just in time. He boarded it and train left. He gave the paper bag containing the handbag to his wife. She took it out and exclaimed,”Oh dear! This isn’t the right bag.”
