Zipper issues

Mine never seems to be up. My zipper, that is. I used to remember to zip up, but now, not so much. Apparently there is a disturbance in the go, zip, wash process. I skip the zip!

If you're getting old enough that you're forgetting to zip....my uncle used to say "Dead men don't fall out of windows"

I know this personally.

Plus I get a perverse kick out of 20 somethings saying "Hey, GrandDad! High Cotton!"

Weird, the last few days I've been having the same problem. I'm not forgetting to zip, my zipper just gradually works its way down. These particular pants have always done this a little, but lately the zipper's been moving farther down than in the past. Instead of buying new jeans, I put a rubber band through the zipper hole and looped it around the button at the waist band. Troublesome, but free.

Start worrying when you start forgetting to unzip.

I keep having this problem with a pair of carhartts, I think it's because the zipper area is tighter than the waist.

I have a pair of pants from TheNorthFace in which the zipper zips down to close. There was a very good reason for it. I can't recall what it was.

I think you like to walk around flashing people and then pretending you didn't know.

They are hiking pants. So it isn't for flashing. Just ventilation.

Maybe I should have all my zippers re-installed upside down. Or replace the zippers with velcro - which at least has a chance of closing on its own.

Pretending I didn't know I liked it?
