And I thought it was because I lost weight

And I thought it was because I lost weight - My husband, Thom had a doctors appointment last Wednesday, so we dressed a little better than we usually do. Thom wore long pants and I wore a favorite short set. It was seersucker, blue and white strips. When I pulled on the shorts I was thrilled with the fact they were looser on me than the last time. I even noticed they hung longer on my leg.

My husband, Thom had a doctors appointment last Wednesday, so we dressed a little better than we usually do. Thom wore long pants and I wore a favorite short set. It was seersucker, blue and white strips. When I pulled on the shorts I was thrilled with the fact they were looser on me than the last time. I even noticed they hung longer on my leg. Thom started the car to get the air conditioner running. After making one more trip to the Bathroom, I joined him in the car. Off we went to Celebration Health Center. As always Thom drops me off at the front door and parks the car. I sat in the lobby waiting for him. The building has a 3 floor opening to the ceiling and Thom was shaky about crossing the bridge on the 3rd floor so he set off to take the stairs and I was going to take the elevator. Arriving on the 3rd floor I walked 2 or 3 different waiting rooms, looking for the surgeons office. There were about 25 people waiting at all the doctors offices. Thom still didn't show up, so I went looking for him in the Stair well. No Thom! I got to thinking he changed his mind and decided the stairs were too open for him. So I passed the 25 people and went back to the elevator, I saw him and he made in on the 3rd floor bridge. We signed in at the nurses station. And waited for the doctor to show up. I got up a few times to get a magazine, go to the bathroom and look out the window. Finally Thom was called and I took a stroll around looking at the sights from the Health Center. Thom got his OK to return to work, so we left the Center. Passing all kinds for patiences and guests. Since it was before 5pm, Thom took his doctor's note to the Monorail office to get his hours. I waited for him in the car, then he said he had to go to Medical Services behind EPCOT, to get approval from Disney nurses to return to work. At Medical Services I decided to go in with him, he was told he had a 45 minute wait. As long as we were there we waited. I again used the bathroom, got up and changes seats and got magazines. The office was filled with people. We went straight home and had dinner. At about 9pm, we were sitting watching TV when Thom notice something about me that was wrong. Thom was never behind me all day, so he couldn't tell me!! All this time, all those people, all those places I went I never knew.......my shorts were ripped. From the waist to the middle. I was wearing black undies and there were there in full view. Half of central Florida saw my butt!! Thom of course thought it was funny. My shorts weren't big on me because I lost weight, they were big because of the rip!I didn't know if I should laugh or cry! I am glad I will never see those people again. I am so glad they never told me! I wish I had a moral of this story. Something wise to say. A piece of worldly knowledge. Nothing comes to mind. One thing that did come to mind.....something every Mom tells every child....Always have on clean underwear, you might end up in the Hospital!!! LOL Good thing I listened to that!

Thank you for that story. Even though it was embarassing, I'm glad that you could get a good laugh out of it. I think I'll pass your mother's advice on to my own children, when they're old enough to understand it. It's a good saying. And, unfortunately it came true for you, even though in a different way than your mother had intended!

Oh my, how embarrassing! Too bad your hubby didn't notice before you went. I would have wanted to sink in the floor. At least you won't see those people again, just think if it would have happened in church!

That is so funny!!! But out of all the people that "gow a free show" I can't believe no one said anything to you!! I htink if I had seen you walking around like you didn't know your panties were showing I would have said something, just because I would have felt so bad if I didn't!! That is such a funny story though, thanks bunches for sharing!!!

Thank goodness you really couldnt tell about the pants begin inside out.. My mom also told me to wear clean underwear because you never know what will happen..

Yes, my mother used to tell me that one too, and it always stuck with me. I'm almost obsessive about clean underwear. It't funny that this just happened to you, as a couple of days ago my husband mentioned that he could see about 5 holes in my jeans. I said yes, I know, but I just didn't want to throw them away. I had been thinking about it, but I kind of get attached to my jeans so I kept putting it off. I took a good look at them, and they not only had holes, but were ripped all along the seams. Sadly, I had to throw them away.

OH dear I am soooo sorry but I am laughing so hard right now I am crying. This sounds exactly like something that would happen to me. But thankfully hasn't. In an attempt to try to make you feel better I have a great story about my Mom years back. My father decided to take her out or maybe she actually talked him into it, but either way they were going to dinner at the finest restaurant in the area, very expensive and very elite. Mom was thrilled and spent the whole day getting ready. New dress, had her hair done, fake fingernails (she has never been able to grow her own nice ones), even went the extra cost of seamless stockings (they were just coming out then). Well, Mom tells the story like this. They got to the resturant and ordered their dinner when she had to go to the bathroom. She excused herself and in the restroom was very very careful not to break off her nails as she 'pulled things up'. As she was walking back to the table she noticed everyone in the place was looking at her. She was thinking to herself "I thought I looked pretty good but never thought I looked this good". When she sat down at the table she leaned over and asked my Dad if he noticed all the people looking at her. Daddy so kindly said, "I don't think they were looking at you. I think they were looking at your underwear and the toilet paper hanging out." I kid you not, Mom said the back of her dress was caught in the waistband of her underwear and somehow the end of the toilet paper roll had also gotten caught and a long string of toilet paper had 'followed' her out of the bathroom. Mom used that story on all of us girls as a reason from making sure your wearing clean and matching underwear rather than the accident one :)

You make me remember those old movies which feature jokes of this kind where, the main character comes out of the bathroom with toilet paper rolling after him as he caught the end of it in his trousers.

And look at you--feeling so hot that day you felt the need to flash the world! Talk about confidence girl--you've definitely got it now! Don't take that the wrong way--I'm complimenting you! Actually, you story reminds me of the pictorials I see in Glamour or Cosmo each month and it just reinforces this thought--NO ONE will say a word any more! People probably thought that you were doing it on purpose! Kind of like "Wow! Look at her--she must have new undies on and WANTED to show them off!" (similar to the stars flashing their goodies to the world). Relax--Thom didn't tease you afterwards, did he? He shouldn't--he should be happy that he's married to a woman who can flash the world with confidence! More power to you sister! :)

"Sorry 'bout your embarrasment, thanks for the laugh" That's the attitude most seem to have about this ;) I'll be sure to check if my pants ever seem loose again. Thanks for the advice!

OMG, my sides are hurting. That is so funny. I can only imagine how, once you found out about the rip, you did an 'instant replay' in your head. Madly trying to reconstruct the day and figuring out who may have seen your black undies! Bless your heart, how embarrassing. Lets think positively, maybe they didn't notice the rip as they were too busy noticing your weight loss and exclaiming how good you looked!

Thats is so funny, thanks for sharing with us. I have a picture in my head of you with black undies and ripped shorts. LOL. Just keep reminding yourself, you won't see them people again. You won't remember them, they will remember you. I am going to bed and this was the perfect post to read before bed. Thanks again for making my night. It really is funny and I really do feel sorry for you. I bet you make sure your pants aren't ripped before leaving the house.

haha thats funny :) I was wondering where the story was going as it was quite long...I think the moral should be to always check your clothes before you put them on, and definitely before you go out in public!

LMAO Poor CK. I guess that is a clue for everyone. If you pants are loose... Check for rips, holes and tears. So start another discussion and ask "Would you tell someone if their butt was hanging out. Why or Why not? =)

Oh No!! This would quickly become listed as one of my most Embarassing moments if it would have been me, even if no one would have said anything. Too bad you could not have known before this. But it did make me laugh too knowing that when you'll think about it later, you will always want to laugh. Thanks for sharing this.
