I have this new pair of navy blue pants. They fit wonderfully and they are fashionable in a sexy tailored pantsuit kinda way. They are what I call my "interview" pants and they've been hiding at the back of my closet for the past few weeks. I did not have an interview today, but I decided it was high time to break them out.
I must include a disclaimer before I go any further. I truly wish this was a story about how hot my pants are. But sadly it is not. It is a simple story about how not to wear your pants in public.
My day started off in a fairly normal manner other than the fact that I set my alarm a teensy bit earlier than usual. I rolled out of bed after a necessary amount of snooze button tapping and I managed to do a resistance band leg workout (courtesy of http://www.fitsugar.com/Victorias-Secret-Model-Leg-Workout-Justin-Gelband-25841335
). I was a little pressed for time as I had an auto maintenance appointment before work. Just enough time to baby-talk my dog, have some yogurt, grab my keys and get my bum out the door.
The dealership I go to has a neat shuttle service where they offer rides to people while their cars are being serviced. I needed a lift to work and a lift to work I got. I also received an informative guided tour of the city... for free! The same shuttle picked me up from work at lunch and took me back to my car.
This is where it gets interesting. I pay for my snow tire installation, I sit in the customer lounge, I walk to the service parking lot. I'm waiting for the attendant to bring my car around and a guy starts walking closer to me. He's smirking as he tells me to check my pants. OMGOSH my tag is sticking out. And it's hanging right between my butt. He and the crew didn't know whether to tell me or not, but apparently the vote was unanimous.
Gee, thanks to all the females who witnessed my faux-pas. Why'd my service guy have to see me blush? Just when I thought I could maybe break the clueless-about-cars, driving-with-my-heels-in-a-soccer-mom-van and cranking-Taylor-Swift-songs stereotype.
