Yesterdays sideways day–part 2

Not only was  my day at work yesterday sideways….

After work, I needed to stop at the grocery store to pick up a few things for a meeting we are having tonight. 

As I was walking into the grocery store, I thought my jeans felt funny in the backside.  However, I didn’t exactly want to be feeling that area of my body walking through the parking lot so I dismissed it.  As I was wandering through the store, I couldn’t figure it out and tried to sort of twist the waist a bit as again, I didn’t want to be feeling my backside in the middle of the grocery store.  I assumed something didn’t quite get put back in the right place after going to the bathroom when I left work.

I gathered my groceries and headed to the checkout.  I leaned over the cart to unload it as I typically would.  I noticed when I stood back up that the lady standing behind me was giving me a snooty look.  Of course, in my mind, I’m thinking ‘what is her problem?’ and calling her some not very nice names.

I purchased my groceries and headed on home.  I sat down in the chair to take my shoes off and when I crossed one leg over the other, I heard a small tear.

It finally dawns on me what’s going on.  Yeah, I’m a little slow like that most some days.


I had a huge rip in my jeans, just under the pocket exposing more than I would have liked for the world to see.  And of all days to have worn bright underwear!  No wonder the lady behind me was giving me that snooty look.

So today, these pants are heading to that big black burn barrel in the sky.  Good-bye my favorite jeans! [sniff sniff]

The moral of this story…if your pants feel funny, for goodness sake stop in the restroom and figure out what the heck is going on! 


  1. Oops! Don't you hate days like that?!
    Hope today stays upright!

  2. Maybe THAT is why Mom always said wear good underwear when you go out! Too funny!

  3. It's hard to laugh and type at the same time :D You know, there was a time when many would have offered the info that your pants were torn. But the way people are wearin' their clothes nowadays leads many to mind their own business rather than get their heads bit off. With your youthful figure, she probably thought you were rebellious! HAHA! Just be glad you were wearing underwear!

  4. Hehehee! At least you HAD underware ON! ;)

  5. Don't burn them! Cut the front part off down the side seams and across about where the crotch is, add some ties on the side and a ruffle on the bottom and you have a darling apron. :) blessings, marlene

  6. Oh, Lori............... ;-) Hope your weeks gets better!

  7. Too funny! So sorry you've lost a favorite pair of comfy jeans.
