Does anyone else ever do this? Someone writes a rant about something you happen to be passionate about too, and the next thing you know, you scan the comments and found that you’ve offended someone inadvertantly with your previous comment. Do you go back and try and fix it? Do you forget it and assume that they have too?
Recently someone wrote about trying to find jeans that fit. Hallelujah. Of course all the replies were about $$$$$ brands that were just great. Fabulous. I can’t afford those. How about something in the Wal-Mart profile, huh? Anyway, I was saying that I looked at levis brand site and they said I should be wearing a size 16. Plus sized. Okay, look at it this way, most men my waist size, would be considered TINY. Not plus sized at all. In fact, most men to be considered plus sized would have waists that are about 16 INCHES bigger than me-so I don’t get it. The jeans I currently have are 6s, an 8, and a 10. The 10s are hilariously baggy, the 8s give it a go, and the 6s hang with me for about 1/2 an hour. They are mostly ‘stretch’ type jeans though, so I guess you’d expect a little sag after (we’re saying a minimum of 5 years here) a few years. So I posted that I wasn’t THAT big, referring to a size 16 (which Levis says I am) and asked if anyone else ever had trouble with sizing. Well sure enough, I pissed someone off and they commented back that they were a size 16. Sorry. It was meant as more of an offense to the companies that size things crappily and not to anyone that actually is a size 16. I don’t get it. The jeans, that is. But I also wish that I wasn’t writing things that pissed people off. It’s just what comes out of my head when I’m on a rant, so do you? ever do that? sigh. or am I alone in my dumb arsed-ness?
