How Hungry Is Your Jumper?

Or how hungry is your shirt? How many times have you looked at what you are wearing after you've eaten to find you've dropped food on yourself, dribbled or made a mark on what you are wearing, because you've missed your mouth, ketchup has dribbled out or something has leaked on you? Do you wear a bib? Or a protector when you eat your food? How many times have you got all ready to go out and spent ages on looking good and you've dribbled on yourself, toothpaste stain, food stain, coffee stain, other stain? Do you wonder if your jumper or shirt is crying out to be fed? Oh crumbs!

OMG! I read this and totally started giggling because I have to say, I think my boyfriends' t-shirts are always crying to be fed! For some reason ketchup is especially attracted to his shirt. I told him about the whole bib thing! But I was only kidding. I do make him put his handkerchief on his tummy area of his shirt when he is eating though. I usually get soup on my clothing. It is a good thing I only eat soup at home!

Welcome to Mylot! I think I need a bib too, I'm terrible, especially with toothpaste for some reason I always manage to get it down myself!

Thank you Wolfie :). You are probably right about men being the worst culprits there ;). I got to admit, I have nearly gotten toothpaste on me a few times but it just wasn't meant to be.

I rarely eat a meal without getting something on me. In fact, when I'm home, I have a spaghetti shirt that I wear when eating spaghetti.

I always get something on my clothing. However, I'm thankful that most of the time this happens, it's when I am at home. It's embarrassing! But no I don't wear a bib because then I would just look silly. I always make the comment that it's not the shirt that's hungry but what is underneath them. My boyfriend always gets a good laugh out of that. *LOL*

Yeah most of the time when I am out I can blame it on the little one. I usually hold him while feeding him so I don't jab him in the mouth with the metal spoon.

Oh buddy, I love it. This is why I am a member with mylot. I get a good chuckle from my dear friends, like you. Keep up the funny posts so I can get a little laugh now and then, especially after reading some nasty responses. I was ready to quit for today since I am having a problem with one of the members here, but I am glad I didn't. I read this discussion just before and it made me laugh, and just when I really needed it. Yes I have gotten food and toothpaste drippings on my clothes and I have had to go change before I could go out. I think this has probably happened to a lot of people.

I love the title of this discussion Wolfie! When I saw it I had to read more. I am always dribbling something down the front of me. For that very reason you will rarely see me wearing a white shirt. I also do home daycare so I usually have a baby on my shoulder and you know what that means! I don't know how many times I have had someone tell me I have baby urp all over my shoulder. The children are always coming up to me and giving me a hug. That means whatever is on their hands at the time is going to be wiped on the back of my shirt, and their faces are going to be wiped all over the front. It is not unusual for me to change my shirt 3 times a day.

All our clothes are extremely hungry and thirsty! You are quite right it is amazing how much we seem to drop down our fronts! I am especially keen to do this when I'm cooking. And it is always when I'm cooking with the red sauce (tomato paste), groan it is such a devil to get out. And then toothpaste, well you think it missed me, but oh no you go out it dries and there it is the mark of the toothfairy. It is soooooo embarrassing! The other day we went to our neighbours and had a salad with our meal and oh yes, it had balsamic vinegar on it and I just had to go and spill it on my bright yellow t-shirt. The stain didn't come out in the first wash, I'm hoping the second one will do it....

Heya Hungry Wolfie! I tend to spill crumbs everywhere, which luckily don't often stain. I am quite messy at eating actually, likely as I eat so quickly (argh). But my "jumpers" seem to somehow like to play on the playground, and ripping tears, making holes much more. My family (don't laugh at me), finally requested for me a couple of years ago not to do ANY laundry. I seem to make all clothes tear into shreds. And even more as we bought a new laundry machine. Even when the "experienced" family members do the laundry, they seem to wear out and get little rips in them more, since it's so strong. :o)

Wow I have never heard an adult shirt (not a baby) called a jumper before... it is usually referred as such as a baby's tops and bottoms... a baby jumper.... must be a Brit thing. Pretty cool. I love the differences in our languages. I am pretty good about not getting anything on my shirt but then I have the bad habit of leaning over when I eat which is not a good thing. As my mother taught me as a child, bring the fork to your mouth not your mouth to your fork! I am trying just for better posture but old habits die hard. I did however keep an extra shirt in my locker when I worked for other companies (or in my car if I didn't have a locker) JUST IN CASE, 'cause every once in a while it would happen. Great question Wolf. Zelo

My jumpers are often hungry. I have a toddler so my clothes are often being fed by him if not by me! If I'm going anywhere important where I need to stay clean, I will make sure I have eaten before I get changed. I still somehow manage to get mucky though. I didn't even dare have a cup of tea before I went to an interview last week because as it was important and I was wearing white, it was pretty much guaranteed that I would spill something down me so I avoided absolutely everything!

I am notorious for spilling food on my clothes. A dribble here, a spot there. It has become a running joke with my husband and I. Perhaps I should invest in some bibs. I just go around with stained shirts most the time. Have a great day!

My wife is always ticked at me 'cause she can't buy me any white shirts. All light colored shirts are ruined within a couple wears because I don't seem to be able to keep them from trying to eat my food. I especially have a bad habit of eating chocolate ice cream while leaning back on the couch. Somehow the shirt has to have its share.

I have to say that I don't own anything white because it's dirty within minutes of putting it on. White is lethal for me. Chocolate ice cream, mmmm now you've made me crave ice-cream! D'oh!

You and me both . Everything white turns out sort of polka dotted but sadly not evenly spaced. Chocolate is bad but so is that nice crimson pasta sauce that was so tasty.

my cloths are gluttons, they want more and more, faster than I can get the spoon to my mouth, I wear a napkin when I am out, or go in the washroom of the restaurant and wash the stain with soap, or that new little stick wash the stain out is wonderful

I never eat at home with my shirt on unless there are some guests there.So the chances are very bleak.It is another matter in the restaurants.I used to be extra careful.
