From the "Eeeeewwwwww" File

Here's another archived cell phone picture I discovered recently. I took this in the dressing room at Target (which I like to pronounce "tar-ZGHAYY" because it makes me feel uppity) while trying on a pair of shorts.

I should stop right there and mention the fact that I rarely take pictures while in department store dressing rooms, locker rooms, bathrooms, etc. (I'm legally required to say that as a condition of my probation--heh, heh).

But seriously, what kind of person needs to be reminded of this? Plus, this was in a MEN'S dressing room. It's common knowledge that guys don't try on bathing suits. We just buy them. If they fit--great. If not, we'll go buy another one (without trying it on).

Ew is right. I can barely stand to try them on at all. Ick. But girls have to.

It is beyond unfair that guys can buy swimming suits, jeans, and underwear off the shelf.

It's a patriarchal cosmic plot! I'm oppressed! Disenfranchised! I have rights and they're being trampled by the fashion industry!

Recently, I learned the phrase "Banana Hammock." From the Boss, no less. After that unwanted gain of knowledge, I can categorically state that I will never, EVER, try on swimwear in a store dressing room. Nope. Ain't gonna happen. Might have to boil any pair of swim trunks I buy before even trying them on at home. ((Insert all-over body shudder here))

yeah - they actually have stickers inside ladies swim suits that says that. Its kind of a no-brainer, but liability calls for them to go above and beyond I guess... as Bill Engval would say: "Here's your sign".
