Just finished an awful day at the Amazon

It was awful, but not for reasons you might think. The reasons that I am talking about are more from a personal aspect. Reasons that I will share as a public service so that someone else in the future may benefit from it. My explanation may be a bit explicit for some. Just a warning.

When we went to work here in August, it was very hot in the warehouse. So much so that I was chaffing in areas not meant to chaff in. So my son tells me about a type of underpants that professional athletes wear. They are sold at Amazon and are expensive(remember that for future reference). The brand is called SAXX and they have a built in pouch to support some very important things. So my wife buys me a pair and I decided to wear them this morning. Nothing wrong with that.

So after a couple of hours into our shift I run into Lisa and tell her how uncomfortable these underpants where. I was just sick of them. A couple of hours later I am in the bathroom in a sitting position and I make a discovery. I discovered three things.
1. They must have the air conditioning on for one thing.
2. My underpants are inside out.
and 3. They are on backwards.

REALLY!!!!!  OMG!!!! I wasn't drinking or coming home from a bender or anything like that.

"So what did you do?"  Well I did what any married man would do. I blamed my wife for putting them in my drawer like that. Duh!

"Did you go into the bathroom and fix them?"

No! With my luck Security would walk in with my pants off and say "Why are you naked?" and the only answer I would be able to come up with would be "Just waiting for the next customer?" Plus they sell those here and that would be hard to explain. So I suffered through the entire day. Walking around with what felt like a giant wedgie and the total lack of support for certain things. So when I discuss the importance of well fitting underpants with my wife and mother-in-law, who both by the way don't want to talk about it for reasons I can't get into right now, I can give them today as an example.

In conclusion I can only think of two explanations for why this might happen. First getting up at 5 o'clock in the morning just doesn't work for me and this life style. And two, this job is so mind numbing that I don't know how to dress any more.

I hope this helps others.


  1. Look at the bright side....since they were inside out you don't need to wash them before wearing them again!

    1. Brilliant! I shall design a line of clothing that looks the same on the inside as it does on the outside just for RV's. How much can you invest?

  2. Oh my, I'll never look at you the same again. I wondered why I would see you walking a bit funny ;)

  3. One would think you'd notice a wedgie rather quickly? I can see inside out, but backwards??

    1. It was a rough day. If you don't believe me, try it yourself. ;-)

  4. That is totally hilarious!! Can't believe you made it a whole day!!
