I can wear the same pair of pants for weeks, underwear for forever but SOCKS. NOPE! Those puppies got be new EVERY DAY.

I don’t usually push causes on ARG, but Lynn is participating in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. It’s a fantastic event that raises funds for cancer research. Lynn is trying to raise $100 to help cancer research. So if you’re feeling helpful check out her donation page.
So I’ve been plowing through all the Kickstarter stuff lately. All the necessary surveys have gone out so check your email if you haven’t received yours!
I’m with you on pants and socks but not underwear.
It’s okay to wear underwear forever if your underwear is air. Or just shower with your underwear on, it’ll dry. ^.^
Also, really good denim shouldn’t be washed at all unless it’s genuinely dirty. Even cheapo denim lasts significantly longer if you don’t wash it incessantly. My wife’s jeans all wear out in the span of months, while I’m still wearing jeans I’ve had since we got married eight years ago.
…my denim absorbs crotchsweat and gets stinky.
May be the best possible ARG-itar possible for this post
Yeah… I tried to wear the same socks for a week and at the end of said week I wish I had worn a mask to remove my shoes… But yeah, we have a saying in my country when it comes to undies: “If side-A feels used, switch it to side-B.”
I keep trying to tell people this, but I get no sympathy.
Must be a Canadian thing.
Planning move to Canada ASAP.
The last time I had to buy jeans was three years ago, when the stitching came undone on my last pair. Underwear is dependent on my mood, and how late I am for work. As for socks, sometimes it comes down to two pairs a day.
haha yeah same here… my feet stink so much I am serving my country (Canada) by changing them every day.
I have a good solution for this: buy new socks…
And make sure to throw away the dirty socks before they become a biohazard and become sentient…
I haven’t received an email from the KickStarter…
Check your spam folder or log into the kickstarter site and fill the survey out from there.
Does that mean you don’t have laundry machines or is their not enough colors or whites to fill?
Btw I wear the same pair only 2 days in a row
Let me guess. On day one you’ll wear the left sock and day two the right sock?
How do people see the difference between left and right socks, anyways? I can do it because of the hole for my big toes, but others?
This should count as its own time off category. I get time off for vacation and if I am sick but do they want to give paid time off for no clean socks? Slave-drivers
Get plenty of rest Arg. Also new socks.
As I’m writing this, it’s dawning on me that I’m wearing my last pair of clean pants! I may have to face the ultimate evil and do some laundry!
It is my firmly held belief that clean socks are the one true luxury.
As a guy who worked in sock fashion and was able to take home as many free socks as necessary, I completely understand this. There was a point in my career that I refused to re-wear the same pair of socks twice. What am I some kind of animal?!?!
I could probably sleep and function in the same clothes for 52 hours straight.
I’m just commenting to get a cool picture
And I hugged you at Comic Con…jeez ARG. Next year I will bring you some socks…and some Febreeze !!
What are socks? Living in Florida we don’t use them.
know that feeling bro. I can’t count how many times I was late somewhere, because I didn’t found clean BLACK socks.
