pants rant

This morning as I was getting dressed, I stood in my closet pondering what to wear. I took a pair of black pants from the Gap off the hanger and thought “Hmmm, I haven’t worn these in a while. Score! It’s gonna feel like I’m wearing new pants!” So, I put them on and was feeling good about recycling them…

… for about 10 minutes. After that, I realized why the pants were relegated to the side of the closet. They appear to fit, they’re the right length, they look good with lots of different tops and you would think all is well. But no, after this brief honeymoon period they start gapping at the waist in a ridiculous fashion. In a constantly-hiking-up-your-pants, out-of-control-annoying-why-dear-God-am-I-wearing-these-pants kind of way. I mean, I bought them at the Gap, but I didn’t want them to HAVE a gap.

I stand here before you teetering on the brink of pants rage.

Dear Gap Corporation, I have lovingly spent my hard-earned dollars on your clothing nigh these many years, and this is how you repay me. No more! I hereby boycott all your pants.

Wish my wife would boycott a few clothing stores

I'm outraged FOR you. In fact, to express my outrage, I will not only boycott Gap pants, but ALL pants, from now until the end of time. I'm taking off my pants as we speak. This will probably infuriate my boss, but hey, there is no price too high to pay for justice.

I am SO right there with you. I put work into getting slim so I can rekindle a friendship with my "skinny pants" -- only, by the time I can actually fit into them, I realize... hmmm... those legs are kind of tapered... and was the waist always that high. And I have to buy new pants anyway.

I think it would be great if the stores had a fat pants trade in program. I know I'd be a lifelong customer. :)
