    I forgot my pants...

    well, office pants anyway. So the rest of the day i'll be walking around in dress shoes, a polo, and my 3 stripe adidas pants. Brilliant!

    Apparently i need to keep an emergency pair of Dockers here at work for days like this. Not the end of the world but I'm not going to live this down with the coworkers for a while. And hopefully i don't have any meetings.

    Let us know when you forget your pants AND underwear.
    I'm sure the ladies will want pics of that.

    The worst I've done is having to walk around in my cycling shoes. If I forgot my pants I'd probably take the day off...think the boss would understand

    Since I don't ride every day, I've brought my clothes back and forth on the day before/after my ride in...and I've forgotten things before. Fortunately, there's a mall nearby, and I've (twice) bought socks and underwear, and I've had to buy pants and a shirt before, too....

    Now, I leave a pair of pants, belt, shoes and all my shower stuff at the office. I've also got a backup shirt/underwear socks in case I mess up again. If I didn't have pants at the office, I'd have to wear my cycling tights around the office, and I'm NOT doing that.

    I keep one days worth of clothing in my desk at all times. However, I have managed to forget my belt and underwear. Fortunately, not on the same day.
    Forgetting underwear is fine by my book. A belt is not since most of my clothing is still way too large for me.

    Now, I think Addidas bike shorts are pretty top line for the ride. Around the office they would suck. I assume you mean Addidas wind pants, I hope? Addidas Bike shorts, I think i'd have to go home. I always have extras of everything at work, I hope. Could be worse. Should you have an important meeting, still might not cut the mustard. In a Utility plant type of setting; I used to find wind pants were ok, to change into following the ride in. As to Addidas bike shorts, they are nifty. like to find a pair.

    I keep a checklist on the inside of my closet door so I can run down the list before departing the house. I haven't forgotten anything since.

    I have a closet in my office with clothes, shirt, slacks, shoes, etc. So, I don't have to remember much. I bring the laundry home once a week and return on Monday.

    Since I can work in jeans or shorts, in addition to my 'daily' clothes, I keep a set of dress pants, shirt, jacket, socks, undies, etc. for those times I many have an unexpected meeting with a client. I suggest you keep one complete set of clothing at work at all times, in addition to what you carry.

    Me, too.

    Me, too--today must be the day for it.

    I do keep a pair of pants in the office, but I must have brought my office pants home last week without realizing it. Anyway, here I sit in dress shirt, cargo shorts, leg warmers, and day hiking shoes.

    One morning commute I accidentally packed my wife's jeans instead of mine.

    She's my height. So, I wore them. Hid in my office all day, but I wore them.

    Now I always keep at least one extra change of clothes in my filing cabinet.

    I grabbed my GF's jeans instead of mine by mistake one day. I was walking around in a crappy old pair of shorts until I went out and bought some jeans. Luckily I needed a new pair anyway.

    Ditto! Before you send all those old clothes to the goodwill, set aside a set of everything for those 'moments'.

    That's one way to do it.
    My extra set of clothes is my previously worn clothing from the day before. Office work is not very sweaty. If it is, I am doing something wrong.

    Damn that's smart. Why didn't I ever think of that?

    I'm way to disorganized to keep a full set here all the time, but leaving a set each day. That my idiot brain could probably wrap itself around.

    Sure. And you wear the pink nail polish because it's more aerodynamic, right?
    Ride a bike. It makes your legs stringy, and less tasty to our Kanamit friends.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
