Go home and change your clothes

I was driving to the bank this morning coming from my house. When I was getting out of my car, I noticed there was a small tear on the upper portion of my shirt. I was faced with a dilemma. Should I drive home and change my shirt or just proceed with my business with the bank? I was pressed for time actually since I had other things to do so I still went inside the bank. Otherwise, I might have gone back home to change. Have you been in a similar situation?

Oh, I would also have to go change if that happens to me especially if I'm wearing sneakers or running shoes. Actually, I think I remembered having stepped on one sometime ago, but I sort of grazed the poop only. I was just about to leave the house, but even though I could have easily removed the poop, I still change the pair of shoes I was wearing.

that will still smell, it's better to really change the shoes I stepped on my dog's poop only when I came back home. I am always careful to step on some poop when leaving the house.

I guess it still does leave some trace of the foul smell. Sometimes I just think that it's more psychological. I mean, my brain still smells the poop even when it's not there anymore. But you're right, if we don't really wash it off, the smell would still remain, and it's really better to just change into another pair.

Dude, that happens all the time.. life is all about decisions and these are some of the ones me need to take a call on each day, from small tears in shirts to how to spend to things that can cost millions or even a life

Yep, it is indeed a common fact of life. And that sometimes trivial things can really put us in a quandary.

That kinda feels a little uncomfortable to me. I will really feel a bit conscious about it. It happened to me before when I was going to work. But since I don't wanna be late, I just didn't mind and kept hiding that part of my dress.

It does feel uncomfortable. It wasn't actually the first time it happened to me. And like you, I was so conscious that I also tried hard to hide it.

I haven't been through such moment yet. However, there is an occasion where we were suppose to attend a function, we are asked to wear formally. I had no idea about that and I wore jeans, sneaker and a shirt without collar. I was thinking if I want to go back and change. Lastly, I ended up wearing those for the function XD

I had somewhat of a similar experience. I came however overdressed at a function. Sometimes it can really get you all caught up for something as trivial as clothing :)

I had something like that happened at work but I was already late and did not want to go back and change. so I struggled on all morning. Finally the seam gave way completely and would you not know not a one in ten people had a safety pin I could pin the waist of my skirt together.So i borrowed a paper clip and bent it enough to hold my skirt together so I could dash the block to my apt and change skirts. I just got inside the living room when the paper clip slipped and my skirt fell off me.I had to change skirts 'and hurry back to work. As I worked only part time every minute was precious to me too.

Quick thinking :) It's a good thing though that your house was just a block away, and that the paper clip held on just long enough for you to get home. Do people still bring safety pins with them nowadays?
