    Luckily, Hasn't happened yet, but if I did forget, I'd go commando.
    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    Depends where I am and when it happened. I tried one day wearing my lycra/spandex shorts all day. Got home and there was some funkyness going on there. On top of that, I'm used to boxers, so the... restrictive nature of the bike shorts was uncomfortable. I vowed never again to do that.

    If I forget to pack underwear and I haven't brought in an extra emergency pair, I'd probably go commando.

    Make some by applying tape of course. Bonus points if you can convince a colleague to help.

    Since I'm wearing bike shorts on the bike, there's no option to wear "sweaty, nasty underwear". I just do without, and gosh almighty, you know what? Nobody's the wiser.

    Depends on the pants. I have a few zippers I just don't trust to stay in the raised and locked position.

    I keep a spare emergency pair in my desk, so I have to forget once and then forget to replenish it before I'm in trouble. This has only happened once in the past year.

    Last week I thought I was in that predicament so I went commando until I was carrying my backpack from the locker room to my desk and wondered why it was so heavy. I had only thought I forgot to pack them. So I turned around and headed back to the locker room.

    I drove, er, uh, I would drive to Target and buy spares to keep in the car which I fortunately haven't, er, uh, shouldn't have to use for the next year, at least. Whew. That was close.

    I've forgotten underwear (went commando). And socks (had to wear sweaty ankle socks under dress pants...at least they were both black). I've started keeping these and all work clothe items in a desk drawer.

    Yep, Commando. No choice. At least you guys only have underwear to worry about. We've go bras to remember too - not nice to wear a sweaty, tight, "squishing" sportsbra all day either. I have a nice fitting light jacket in that emergency situation.

    I keep the lycra on every day for extra support. I even sleep in it. Once a week I change clothes.

    Every smell I make is natural and therefore beautiful.
