One of my favorite Mommy Bloggers, Suburban Turmoil, posted about something that shouldn’t be overlooked – Pants with writing on the butt.
Is there anything more annoying than a grown woman walking around with words on her butt?
It’s bad enough that teenagers wear these ridiculous pants, but they’re teenagers, so we cut them some slack. If they didn’t make fashion mistakes, there would be something wrong with them.
But a 35-year-old woman whose beehonkus is, let’s just say, not her best asset, and who also has a visible granny panty line should not be wearing cheap sweat pants with the words “American Spirit” across her backside. Particularly at the gym on the elliptical, where her butt is eye-level and impossible to avoid. I really think she’d be mortified if she knew how many people are reading her rear end at the gym. The fact is, we can’t look away; our eyes are trained to seek out words and process them, no matter where they may be. If it weren’t for those words, I would never have noticed this woman or her ass, but since she wears those pants every damn day, her butt is as familiar as the face of the old woman walking on the track upstairs, or the girls in the nursery who play with Bruiser and Punky.
I’m not exactly a fashion expert myself; I tend to get overdressed for things, wearing a top to playgroup that would be more appropriate for a date night, or putting on full makeup and then deciding to go to the Y. There’s probably someone out there I’m driving crazy with my too-long hair and penchant for false eyelashes. But seriously. Is there anything worse than butt words?! They’re just. So. Irritating.
