You know what I'm talking 'bout, when those people with statement shirts walk by you! do you have an urge to read them? Or do you not bother? I don't know why but I always end up reading them, Yesterday I saw a girl and her shirt said: friends don't let friends talk to ugly people. That just made me laugh what bout you encounter some interesting statement shirts recently? Do share :)

well, yes if the statement catches my attention. Sometimes if i'm bothered i have to go back or atleast get closer to that person to read the entire statement again. That is why I don't have an interest to wear statement shirts.

The person become instant celebrity. He/she surely freak out when he/she saw people running after him/her. That would be so fun. Everones chasing her/him. hahahahahha The next time he/she go out deffinately he/she is not going to wear that shirt again.

hey there. I do notice when people have things written on t-shirts. I do get the urge to read them but also feel a little embaressed. It is silly I know. They obviously dont mind people looking at them or they wouldnt be wearing these shirts!! I think it is just that I really dont like people looking at me and would not encourage someone by wearing one these types of shirts. But everyones different!

hey pushkin69, know that you're not the only one who feels this way, I'm sure everyone feels rather weird whilst some one is reading their shirt, imagine what is going through their minds *is this person staring at my bust?* OR *my gosh there's a perv* OR *what's wrong with people is there something on my face* and my personal favorite *please stare people I know I'm gorgeous :)* oh well happy mylotting!

It depends if the shirt is colourful and stands out. There was not to long ago, a guy who lost his job because of his t-shirt. He had on it:" I don't need SX, I get screwed by the government enough." He got fired. Though I really do believe him. See what happens when you let others SEE the truth? You get punished. hahaha!

Well yes, I agree with you. Being honest now a days, just does not seem to pay off anymore. By the way, I would want one of these t-shirts myself. Maybe I can get myself one made.

YES... I always read people's shirts. I had a bad experince by doing this. I was reading this ladies t-shirt one day at the couthouse. She spoke up and said what are you looking at (in a very hateful and loud tone). I just smiled and said that I was reading her shirt. She looked down and apologized for yelling at me. She had forgot that she was wearing that shirt and thought I was being, well let just say not too nice toward her. I couldn't keep from laughing. I don't even remember what the shirt said.

I remember having one of those infamous T-Shirts! I remember it being very graphic too and I actually wore it as a kid, I can't believe that I did that now that I reflect back on it. I guess I do read those t shirts whenever I see someone wearing them! Still, I'm not into wearing them myself anymore, I'm just a plain and simple white t shirt, grey t shirt and black t shirt kind of guy! Andrew

I love those shirts. Usually they have a funny quote and walking pass someone with a shirt like that brightens up my day. It does feels a little weird though staring at their body. Thank god I'm a fast reader even for moving objects

Yup I always read them! I had a nightshirt that read " If you can read this then you are too damn close" i thought it was rather ironic i brought it to wear while in labour with my first daughter and ironic in how up close and personal the midwives get!

If I can I always try to read the statement of T-shirt. I feel it’s very interesting and funny. My last time to read a statement of a T-shirt was last Saturday. I was on a wedding party. A little girl is two years old. She had a t-shirt that has a statement as never a silent night with me. At begging I did not catch the idea

I don't bother reading them because I never notice anything about peoples clothes; I can hang out with people that will wear the same thing everyday and wouldn't notice right away lol

you should really learn to be less oblivious and more observant Raymond 1342 for this could be what that gets you in trouble later in life. Imagine if you weer this careless with other aspects of your life such as your job, your children or even your financial status? this could turn in to something big. Thanks for sharing, and good luck here on My lot

I usually notice them.Most of the times they are very interesting.Recently i saw a guy wearing a t shirt which said -'I want to be like Gandhi and Martin Luther King and John Lennon but i want to stay alive.'I think this sort of writings are a good style statement and reflects your personality.
