    Don't buy cheap pants

    Bought a pair of pants a few weeks ago. I went to put them on this morning and, dang, they must have really shrunk because they do not fit any more.

    So, you bought them BEFORE Thanksgiving, and now a week AFTER Thanksgiving they don't fit?

    I think my washer and dryer are defective because both my pants and shirts have shrunk recently.

    It's a conspiracy by the fashion industry. They are actually making them smaller than they used to, when I was younger. They will tell you they are not. They lie.

    I hate buying jeans. I bought a pair of really cheap($9) jeans to weld in. Well, bad idea, I caught fire, and burned one leg all the way off. Never again.

    Coulda been worse about 25 years ago I had a friend was welding and caught his pant fringes on fire,no biggie he just swatted them with his glove til they went out,this time a new kid grabbed a bucket of water and threw it on him to extinguish the fire,it wasn't water it was solvent,he was burned over 50% of his body
