A sure sign I’ve started a new job

April 23, 2010

Another pair of pants are in the mending pile.  Because, apparently, I can never start a new job without breaking my pants some way in the first week.

Years ago…..
[First week of work.] Thank goodness for scrubs covering the relevant anatomy, I tore out the seat of my jeans, kneeling.

Next job……
[First week of work.] Tore out the seat of my jeans, picking up a pen. Tied a sweatshirt around my waist. Not too high school or anything.

Same as above job….
[Four year work.] Tore the knee out of my jeans chasing after the puppy. And the seat of my jeans.

This job…..
[Second day of work.] Ripped the hem out of the right pant leg.

I guess it’s an improvement that my tuchus wasn’t threatening to hang out this time, eh?  And I can probably repair the hem instead of having to buy a new pair of pants.  I think.

    Sounds like you’re a “fly by the seat of your pants” kind of gal. Ok, that was horrible, but I had to say it. Lol.

  2. LOL. I think it’s definitely become a tradition. 😀

  3. Oh dear hehehe. I say fix ’em, you can do it!

  4. Nice! I always loose the hem out of my dress pants. Makes me nuts.

    I’m sure that ‘busting your butt’ is the best way to ensure success in any new job! (sorry, couldn’t resist).

    So have you started compensating for this by waiting on your really nice pants?

    Hem is progress, anyway. I once had a friend rip the seat out of his pants in a break during a 3-hour class. He was trying to slide down the banister from the 4th floor, so I’m glad that’s all that happened…and it was really funny to laugh at his cover-up attempts.

    LOL! Very funny for us but not so much for you when it happened. Maybe you should keep an extra pair of pants at work… just in case this happens again. =D
