    Lots of the shallow appearance-centric people out there are guys, too.

    It's an increasing problem, certainly, but their standards are largely men-imposed.

    It's way more social class/category based than gendered, near as I can tell.

    Women can quite easily wear boot cut jeans, undershirts, and flannels around like I do if they want. They all come with useful pockets, and they can take a purse/bag with them while they do it. Now, they might not want to or pay the social cost of flying a particular social flag*, but that's class pressure as much as anything. Also might not be accepted at their place of employment, but again, it's hard to argue that's anything other than class enforcement.

    *Haircut and boot style changes the category of trite stupid first level impression significantly.

    I've totally been in your situation before, when I needed a job while I was waiting for something else, and I found it was okay doing something I knew wouldn't have any other opportunities or something. I felt tided over like you say, but I feel I also learned some things, and even when it's miserable it's nice knowing it's not forever, right? If you decide to do that, I hope everything works out for you, and congratulations on earning your degree. :)

    I put biscuits in there. And then forget that I put biscuits in there, and sit on them.

    0/10, not recommended.

    Why would you store edibles on your butt to begin with?

    At no point have I claimed to be in control of my actions.

    I put my wallet in the back pocket all the time. Back when I had more hair, also a comb. These always worked well in back pockets.

    You were a greaser, weren't you?!

    Nah, that's before your time.

    Or was it? :mischief:

    Too young for greaser. But the other parts never went away. Back in the 70s and 80s most boys had long hair.
